Chris Christie is known for his smack downs against hecklers. But now the New Jersey governor is facing heat from PETA for taking action against … a spider? Gov. Christie was giving a tour of his office to his daughter’s fourth grade class when he was caught on tape killing a spider that had crawled on his desk.

In the video, the kids contemplate how to kill spider, but it's Christie who delivers the smack down. The animal rights group jumped on Christie, calling him “thoughtless.”
