Santa Maria, Calif. – As part of PETA’s national “Fight the Bite” campaign—which includes an in-your-face (literally!) 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 this Thursday passing out hundreds of the tasty chick-free meals to encourage people to forgo chicken wings on Super Bowl Sunday—something that’s easier to do and more delicious than ever.
When: Thursday, February 10, 11:45 a.m.
Where: Outside KFC, 2207 S. Broadway, Santa Maria
“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 or death for chickens,” says PETA Executive Vice President Tracy Reiman. “PETA asks that everyone kick off their Super Bowl feasts with food that leaves 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 wings available at grocery stores
