Chrissie Hynde Rocks Philly Against McCruelty

Written by PETA | May 27, 2010

No one—and I mean no one—rocks like Chrissie Hynde. Whether she’s fronting the Pretenders or backing a PETA campaign, the vegan Rock and Roll Hall of Famer is never in the “Middle of the Road.” In fact, she’s always willing to go the extra mile (or “2000 Miles“) to help animals.

Case in point? After helping us re-launch our McCruelty campaign last year—urging McDonald’s to require its U.S. suppliers to upgrade to less cruel slaughter standards—Chrissie took time off from promoting her upcoming album in New York this week to kick off our new “i’m hatin’ it” national ad blitz with an appearance in Philadelphia. And to make sure that people got the message, she not only unveiled her attention-grabbing billboard, she also passed out some of our thought-provoking Unhappy Meals to the fine folks of Philly!

    Wonderful Chrissie. People should know where and how their food is slaughtered then I do not think they would eat it.

    Thanks Chrissie Hynde and others for not shutting their eyes to the massive animal abuse in the world. I mean it’s horribly indescribably massive. fur down food cosmetics medicines ‘petproduction’ you name it.

  • David Kaliner says:

    You go Chrissie!! I’m glad that celebs like her Leona Lewis and Jeff Beck speak out against such cruelty against animals. Places like McDonalds and KFC should be deeply ashamed.

  • Marv Fried says:

    Great Chrissie. We need more of this to expose McDeath. They support many health causes like they are really concerned when their food and culture that they promote leads to illness death and obesity and cruelty.

    I’m interested in comparative consciousnesslevels between humans and nonhumans. We can say that pigs are at least on a par with three year olds but what about chickens? I would guess they’re sort like one year olds but I’m not confident on that squid are more conscious than I would have guessed until I saw some particular footage. It’s a question for biologists.
