PETA’s Beef With Madonna’s Kosher Meat
Some celebrities make animal-friendly demands when they’re on tour, but Madonna isn’t one of them.
We already knew the Material Girl was a fur hag. Now, she’s added to her animal-unfriendly rep by purchasing 110 pounds of kosher meat for the last two performances of her “Sticky and Sweet” tour in Tel Aviv.
We immediately sent her a letter explaining that most imported kosher beef sold in Israel comes from Uruguay, where cattle are often shackled and violently wrestled to the ground before having their throats cut and being hoisted into the air by their hind legs—a cruel “shackle and hoist” slaughter method that the Chief Rabbinate of Israel has called “primitive” and has promised to phase out.
Instead of ordering her weight in meat, Madge would win over more fans if she gave a compassionate diet a try.
