Unhappy Meals Now at McDonalds, Courtesy of PETA

Published by PETA.

The adorable peta2 mascot, Not a Nugget, is out to educate people about an issue that is near and dear to his heart: the abuse of chickens killed for McDonald’s Happy Meals. To alert young and old alike to the suffering that goes into every McNugget, Not a Nugget is embarking on a tour of the U.S., tirelessly handing out free Unhappy Meals to each and every McDonald’s customer who crosses his path.


Our Unhappy Meals include a menacing “Ronald McDonald” cutout, a “blood”-filled packet, a “bloody” plastic chicken, and a “McCruelty” T-shirt wrapped in such a way that it resembles a chicken sandwich.

McDonald’s has lost a lot of customers because it hasn’t acted to eliminate the worst abuses of chickens killed for its restaurants.

“Almost all of us grew up eating meat, wearing leather, and going to circuses and zoos. We never considered the impact of these actions on the animals involved. For whatever reason, you are now asking the question: Why should animals have rights?” READ MORE
