Chrissie Hynde Is ‘hatin’ it’ Across America

Written by PETA | August 24, 2009

The Pretenders’ world tour landed in Salt Lake City on Sunday—and Rock and Roll Hall of Famer Chrissie Hynde was happy to use the occasion to launch her PETA campaign urging McDonald’s to require its suppliers to upgrade to less cruel slaughter methods. In addition to using her stage as a platform to advocate a McDonald’s boycott and tossing campaign T-shirts to her audience, Chrissie unveiled her brand-new “i’m hatin’ it” ad at a Salt Lake City McDonald’s today. Check out some of the action below, and then head to KSL-TV to see how it played on the news:








That spectacular artwork you see there is soon to be on billboards across the country—starting with Chrissie’s hometown of Akron, Ohio. Lucky Akron! First it gets its own vegan restaurant, now this awesome billboard …

    i sent/worte this letter to stop the cruelty…I was traumatized when I found out how these chickens are killed…this behavior is very cruel and disgusting ….these chickens are in extreme pain having their becks and limbs cut off….while still conscious …the more of your costumers find out about this they will start avoiding McDonalds and go to competing restaurants such as Burger King, KFC, Wendy’s , ect.. the fact that McDonalds is a restaurant that kids love to come to and they should know about the way they are slaughtered ….for example this happened to me….I was shown these videos by a eleven year old and she didn’t decide to take action ….I am fourteen I thought the world was a fair ,a happy place and a big play ground… but no its about money ,economy ,and business, and people who want the world to revolve around them….so I am taking action like PETA I speak for the ones who can’t say ..Stop!, that’s painful, or why are you doing this to me …..Its sad what your doing I look down on you..your character McDonald the clown was a role model to kids and your happy meal is not even close to happy it sad and pathetic you should change the way you slaughter them, require your suppliers to switch to CAK immediately in order to reduce the suffering of millions of chickens killed each year for your restaurants. Your business is pathetic ..I am unable to bear meat anymore from any where because of this nonsense kill your food properly so your business can thrive……

    I got sick every time I ate at McDonald’s. I’m wondering why I have not sued them yet. Now I wish I had. McDonald’s sucks. I have not eaten there ever since I’ve learned about the cruelty to animals.

    Anyone who eats there needs a head transplant.

    Mc D are horrible depressing places. After finding all this info, I will never spend a cent in any of their shops

  • Jade Simpson says:

    If this shocks people then there is an answer aside from trying to stop the cruelty, go vegan!!!

    I am 38 and cant believe I have never really thought about how animals are treated , I somehow believed that human decency prevails and cruelty to poor animals was the exception not the rule . I am shocked to the core that in socalled civilised society this extreme torture is accepted . Thank god for organisations like PETA
