Bud Adams: Give McCruelty the Bird!

Published by PETA.

Last Sunday, Tennessee Titans owner Bud Adams ecstatically extended his middle fingers as he rejoiced in his team’s victory against the Buffalo Bills—and later paid a titanic fine of $250,000.

Who knew that giving the bird could be so expensive?!

Lucky for Adams, we’ve got a bird for him to give that costs nothing and saves lives. We’re sending him one of our newest McCruelty T-shirts and asking him to flip it to an opponent who’s much more offensive than any of his football rivals.




Did we mention that he doesn’t even have to lift a finger?

McDonald’s allows its suppliers to break the wings and legs of chickens, cut their throats while they’re still conscious, and scald them to death in defeathering tanks. Chickens continue to suffer these abuses despite the fact that there is a less cruel method of slaughter available. Who wouldn’t flip at the chance to give the one-finger salute on behalf of birds who can’t do it themselves?
