McDonald's Tiks Off Ke$ha

When pop sensation Ke$ha learned that McDonald’s McCruelty is spending more than $1 billion on renovating its restaurants while still refusing to require its suppliers to upgrade to a less cruel method of slaughtering chickens, she fired off a letter to McDonald’s CEO Jim Skinner calling out the company for its “Sleazy” behavior. The singer is even putting her money where her mouth is by offering McDonald’s cash to help with the transition to a more humane slaughter system: “I may not have the $ that the Golden Arches has to throw around, but I’d be glad to lend a hand in helping bring your suppliers’ slaughter practices into the 21st century.”

The social, inquisitive chickens killed for McNuggets have their legs and wings broken and their throats cut, and many are dunked into the scalding water of defeathering tanks while still conscious. Meanwhile, Skinner and McDonald’s continue to ignore the recommendation of the company’s own animal welfare panel, which has endorsed a slaughter method that renders the birds unconscious at the start of the slaughtering process. This method, which has been approved the U.S. Department of Agriculture, is already in use by McDonald’s suppliers in Europe, so there’s no excuse for allowing American suppliers to continue with such cruelty.

Tell McDonald’s to require American suppliers to switch to the less cruel slaughter method. As Ke$ha might say, “TiK ToK,” the switch can’t come a moment too soon for chickens!

      You don’t have to be vegan to want animal cruelty to end.

        You can *want* all kinds of things. The only way to *end* animal cruelty is to boycott it by going vegan.
