You may have heard that hideous fast-food bird abuser KFC is currently doing its darnedest to promote itself as an icon of healthy eating. ROTFL!!
I can only assume that it’s referring to our thoughts about how unhealthy KFC is—which, admittedly, is one of the things I think about KFC. Of course, I mostly think about its awful animal welfare record, which it doesn’t appear to be asking us to “unthink.” (Possibly because, well, it’s still awful.)
Give me a break, KFC. You can put a shiny “Healthy!” sticker on it all you want, but cholesterol-filled, artery-clogging flesh is still unhealthy, whether you fry it or grill it—and grilled chicken has been shown to contain carcinogens. I think I’ll pass on the three-piece breast and thigh meal with an increased cancer risk on the side. Thanks anyway.
I can think of a better response to KFC’s new grilled chicken—how about we grill KFC? Click here to write to the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) and ask it to investigate KFC’s false animal welfare claims.
