Toms River, N.J. – As part of PETA’s national “Fight the Bite” campaign—which includes an in-your-face Super Bowl ad—and to mark the historic launch of KFC’s new vegan Beyond Fried Chicken, PETA supporters will be outside a local KFC store tomorrow passing out hundreds of the tasty chick-free nuggets to encourage people to forgo chicken wings on Super Bowl Sunday, something that’s easier to do and more delicious than ever.
When: Saturday, February 12, 1 p.m.
Where: Outside KFC, 222 Rte. 37 E., Toms River
“It’s no skin off our backs to order the crispy, cruelty-free nuggets now available at KFC instead of meaty ones, but it’s a matter of life and death for chickens,” says PETA Executive Vice President Tracy Reiman. “PETA asks that everyone kick off their Super Bowl feasts with foods that leave animals in peace.”
PETA—whose motto reads, in part, that “animals are not ours to eat” and which opposes speciesism, a human-supremacist worldview—offers a list of ready-to-heat vegan wings available at grocery stores and a guide to eating vegan at chain restaurants.
