Forget Miley Cyrus’ terrible ‘tween “Sweet 16” bash at Disneyland; there’s something much, much sweeter to celebrate at Disney World: No more foie gras! Just this month, Disney World dumped this disgusting Donald Duck–derived “delicacy of despair” (produced by force-feeding ducks until their livers become diseased and engorged) from its menus.
Disney World’s compassionate decision is part of a growing trend among businesses to distance themselves from this cruel product. Just ask Target, Giant Eagle, and Harvey Nichols—three huge chains that recently caved in to pressure from PETA and its affiliates and pulled foie gras off their shelves. The production of foie gras has also already been banned in 15 nations—including the U.K., Germany, Israel, and Switzerland—as well as in the state of California.
While this is all a giant waddle in the right direction, we’re not going to stop campaigning against foie gras until everyone stops forcing ducks to be organ donors. Today Disney World, tomorrow the rest of the world! For more info about this nasty stuff and to take a pledge to say “nah” to foie gras, click here.
