Pamela Anderson Takes a Juicy Bite

Written by PETA | August 4, 2008

Pamela Anderson, PETA’s honorary director, was in Canada, her home country, today. Where’d she have lunch? At a KFC with local animal rights advocates, just to sample the new faux-chicken Classic Vegetarian Sandwich! For the past five years, Ms. Anderson has been a big part of PETA’s international campaign against KFC, whose suppliers have been responsible for some serious Kentucky Fried Cruelty. While the KFC boycott continues to rage outside Canada, the United Purchasing Group of Canada—which is responsible for coordinating the purchasing of all chickens for Canadian KFCs—entered into an agreement with PETA to dramatically improve animal welfare standards and reduce suffering. Yes, before you comment—we’d rather all the KFCs were all-vegan and we’d rather the whole world went vegan. But if you were a chicken with the choice of whether or not you wanted to have a wing painfully broken and be scalded to death, and PETA could help you get that relief but didn’t control the whole world, I’m guessing I know which option you’d go for. The new faux-chicken Classic Vegetarian Sandwich is available at most KFCs in Canada, so head on up north of the border and try one yourself!

    Thank you Pam and God Bless. I am a 73 yr. old vegetarian male mostly vegan from Nanaimo B.C. We will never have peace in the world or kindness until people stop killing and eating our fellow creatures that have over 90 of the same DNA as we have it is a form of cannibalism. We as people can be such hypocrites.People saying they love animals and continuing to eat meat is like a cannibal saying they are a “people person”. Keep up your’ great crusade for animal rights.

    i really encourage this type of support i try and convince as many people i can to do such great things for the environment but i dont have the resources pam has. although my motto is act locally think globally its really awesome when you see people with alot giving back.

    After finding out about how horrible the chickens were treated I wrote an email to KFC. I got one of their form letters back. Total denial and they referred to PETA as “a radical extremist group whose agenda is to promote a vegetarian lifestyle” basically called PETA liars. I guess I’m not surprised at their response but I won’t eat at KFC until they follow Canada’s example at least. Also viewed Pamela’s clip on YouTube. Disturbing how hateful some of the member’s comments posted can be. Hope some PETA supporters here will check out some of youtubes vids add their own comments as well…

    I am sickened by eating from a resturant that serves meat but if you take the stand that you will not eat KFC and support the faux chicken sandwich than you can not eat at any resturant that is not vegvegan. I will eat the sandwiches from KFC to support the fact they are selling vegan food. If enought poeple support this it will continue to grow and spread to other fast food chains. Eventually it may even become more popular to eat faux food than the real thing and help to end the slaughter of animals for food. We have to start somewhere and if the vegvegans do not support this move of KFC than they many stop selling the faux chicken sandwich. where that leave the billions of chickens that die for that resturant? Start thinking about the animals this will save not your silly vegan ideals. Vegans are suppose to save animals at any cost. Not be picky how they are saved.

    Where exactly do I get this veggie sandwich at kfc in canada? I’ve only been able to get it once Perth Ontario. Every other place I’ve checked 4 places so far…all in Ottawa ON say they don’t carry it anymore?

  • nicole says:

    doesn’t all the money that is made from the vegeterian sandwich at kfc go towards their popularity therefore making the demand for chickens increase. and don’t the profits for these sandwiches go towards funding the rarms which torture chickens?? this is not too cool hey! we should completely boycott kfc alltogether!

  • Jane says:

    Peta please try and carry the strong message of animal rights to the US. I think you could make this one step greater by persuading America to start selling this vegatarian sandwich.
