Go Daddy CEO Bob Parsons: Africa Elephant Hunt Video 'Nothing to Be Ashamed Of'


"The people making all these suggestions, there's none of them willing to step up and do anything," he told ABC News Radio. "I mean, they're all talk and no walk.

"This is not the kind that you see on Disney," he added. "I mean, these are not gentle creatures. I mean, these are wild animals."

Go Daddy, based in Scottsdale, Ariz., says it manages half the websites in the country and has 2,950 employees. The company aired its seventh Super Bowl commercial in February, featuring IndyCar driver Danica Patrick, fitness coach Jillian Michaels and a computer-edited television actress Joan Rivers.

A Go Daddy competitor, Namecheap, is inviting attention to the elephant controversy and has launched a promotion in which you can transfer your account for $4.99. Namecheap added that it will donate $1 to Save the Elephants.
