KFC Campaign is a Marathon

Written by PETA | October 22, 2007

Lindsay_and_Nicole_marathon_2.JPGLindsay and Nicole, a couple of die-hard anti-KFC campaigners, completed the Louisville Half-Marathon in KFC’s hometown yesterday. So what, you ask? Well, they did the whole thing with “Boycott KFC” and the like written on their bodies, and the pair reported that they got tons of support from the crowd and even talked to several Yum (KFC’s parent company) employees along the way, including one particularly chatty woman who wanted to debate around mile six. Of course, she couldn’t defend KFC, since you can’t really defend a company that refuses to take even the smallest steps towards improving the miserable lives and deaths of the animals killed for its products, despite the fact that its own animal welfare advisory board recommends the changes, and other industry giants like McDonald’s, Burger King, Wendy’s, and scores of others, have already taken similar action.

Congrats Lindsay and Nicole!

And on a totally unrelated note, Wu Tang Clan member RZA walked away with the crown in the Hip Hop Chess Federation’s first annual Chess Kings Invitational. Lucky for RZA that I didn’t know about it in time to enter!

    Tracy You need an English book STAT!

  • Taylor says:

    Craig if you ever took the time out of your life to stand up for something you believed in then you would understand why people do things like this. Obviously people like you and Harry took the time out of your lives to stand up for what you think is the right way to live which I don’t agree with but whatever. And if you ever went o a demo or anything like this you would see that there really are actually a lot of people that do care that you would never think would. Just last weekend I did a KFC demo and got 2 people to leave saying they would never eat there again just by giving them the information. And by the way they were probably in their 40s not in college. Thanks anyways for your uninformed comment!

  • Caboose says:

    You talk of people sayng hateful things. Well have you seen YOUR comments? Someone who eats at a restaurant that is your enemy doesnt make them a subhuman. PETARacism. If KFC abandoned their evil ways THEN WHAT? Will you still hate them forever or LEARN to forgive? The reason people eat at KFC is because nobody cares where it comes from and it is quick chicken. In this shithole of a 50 stated nation nobody has time for a homemeal anymore! If we slowed down like in Chile we have time+$!

  • tiffany says:

    Hey Canaduck instead of talking crap on people who are trying to make a positive difference in the world why dont you do us all a favor and go walk through the jungle where you can ripped apart by a beautiful animal that we all helped save!

  • Judith, Freedom Fighter says:

    You “GO” girls. You really do rule. Your beautiful…..

  • Ariel says:

    Lynn Schlosser I agree with your realistic comment but I believe you really meant to address the pathetic attentionseeking loser Harry not Canaduck. name mistakes like that happens sometimes on here

  • Aleasha says:

    Canaduck you are disgusting. Anyone who eats KFC knowing the cruelty behind it is a sick horrible person. You don’t have one ounce of compassion or caring in your body! People like you make me sick. I suggest you try therapy. Maybe they can help you find your soul!

  • Gretchen says:

    Harry…You’ll pay for your habits in the form of bad health.. if it’s not your heart it will be something else.. say polyps in your colon.. high blood pressure cholesterol.. you may feel good now but just you wait.

  • trish says:

    Oh Harry… all those poor little fleece that died to make your slippers… oh wait! Fleece is synthetic… Happy heartattack!

  • Michele says:

    Before people start slagging others here please make sure you are reading the posts correctly. Lynn it was not Canaduck who wrote that utter nonsense it was “Harry” the name of the poster is BELOW the comment. And I would not bother to attempt to reply to Harry’s assertions. He has nothing of any value to say.

  • Craig5 says:

    Why are people congratulating a bunch of people for running around trying to boycott a restaurant when in reality the only people that will avoid KFC are people who already agree with you. It’s really easy to convince a bunch of college kids to do something they think they are so smart for reading some statistics about how bad meat is and join these hippy crap marches thinking they are changing the world. WHO CARES! What do I care if the chicken im eating was given 1 cubic foot less space than someone decided was the correct amount of space for a chicken to live in? Does it taste good? Yes In general am I still alive after eating the chicken? Yes so far so that’s all i needed to know.

  • Lynn Schlosser says:

    Hey Canaduck no only slobs like you need therapy.

  • Brendan says:

    WOW! Good on you! Thank you for doing that!

  • Mr. Chief says:

    halo snipe is now Mr. Chief This is not a prequel to Halo! Marathon

  • Ariel says:

    Yes Congrats indeed to Lindsay and Nicole! Great great ladies! Thank you! Noting from the information comments “KFC…and other industry giants like McDonald’s Burger King aka “Murder King” Wendy’s and scores of others…” “…industry giants…” numerous chains that inundate the population wherever they can making BIG MONEY from people eating the body parts of dead animals who were mercilessly tortured and slaughtered. How sick!

  • liliana says:

    They are so nice! God bless them! I would like to have many people like these ladies like friends!

  • Bill says:

    Go Lindsay and Nicole! And at the risk of sounding sexist damn they’re hot!

  • Harry says:

    I’m enjoying a KFC original recipe 4 chicken dinner right now. The flavor is absolutely delicious! With every bite the chicken juices run down the sides of my mouth! Tonight I plan to grill a 12 ounce New York strip. As the weather has turned cold I will also be wearing my Polo leather jacket. The leather is extremely soft and VERY warm. I will also have my fleece lined moose leather slippers on. What a misguided and miserable life you must be enduring. Please search yourself and find out you why you insist on punishing yourself. Have you tried therapy?

  • Canaduck says:

    Wow awesome job to Lindsay and Nicole!!!
