Think you’ll see rapper MURS in your local McDonald’s? Think again!
This longtime vegetarian emcee always does his part to speak up for those who are struggling—including animals. Angry about the abuse of chickens by slaughterhouses that supply McDonald’s, MURS has joined the peta2 boycott of the fast-food giant. MURS is also encouraging his fans to stay away from McDonald’s until the company agrees to require its suppliers to adopt an improved slaughter method called controlled atmosphere killing (CAK), which eliminates some of the worst abuses that birds suffer. “Just have a common respect for life and a common respect for yourself,” MURS says. “If you really loved yourself, you wouldn’t put junk into yourself.”
MURS is helping out peta2 (and chickens everywhere!) by appearing on anti-McDonald’s postcards that will be handed out during the best tour in the hip-hop circuit—Rock the Bells, which he’s hosting. You can come get yours at our very own peta2 booth which will be set up at every Rock the Bells tour stop in the U.S.
