When graffiti king Banksy's "coyote" took on Colonel Sanders, we interpreted the work to be pro-chicken. But there's no question that artist Wayne Coyne, lead singer for The Flaming Lips, is speaking out against cruelty to birds with his new work. He assured fans that the blood used in the creation of a new poster was his own, stating, "We thought it would be silly to use some chicken blood or something like that. They don't need to sacrifice their vital fluids any more than I need to, so I thought, 'Well, let's just do it. We'll be the experiment.'"
The Flaming Lips have previously signed PETA's petition calling on KFC to eliminate some of the worst abuses endured by birds killed for its buckets. We like it when people speak up for chickens. Do you?
