Last week the Discovery Channel claimed they would film a man being eaten alive in an snake-proof suit for their "Eaten Alive" special. Naturally, this did not go over well. And people are already starting to protest.

Taking to Change.org, more than 26,000 petitioners have signed this protest to, "STOP THE AIRING OF 'EATEN ALIVE' - BOYCOTT DISCOVERY CHANNEL." Here's what they protestors are against:

The Discovery Channel is now committing animal abuse for creating a show called "Eaten Alive." A grown man in a "special suit" is planning on being eaten alive by a Green Anaconda.

This is animal abuse to the highest degree and absolutely disgusting, and could kill the snake - an adult green anaconda cannot fit the width of an adult man's shoulders into it's body.

Meanwhile, host Paul Rosolie tweeted this image, implying that the stunt is most likely still air. No doubt the show has already been taped, but many do not want it to air.
