Atlanta – Below, please find a statement from PETA Executive Vice President Tracy Reiman in response to KFC’s plan to test vegan Beyond Fried Chicken tomorrow in Atlanta:
After a long campaign against “Kentucky Fried Cruelty,” PETA is delighted to offer its support for the new vegan chicken at KFC in Atlanta. As smart businesses race to meet the sky-high demand for tasty vegan options, if this rollout of Beyond Fried Chicken goes national, it would almost certainly mean profits by the bucketful—and countless chickens’ lives saved.
PETA—whose motto reads, in part, that “animals are not ours to eat”—opposes speciesism, which is a human-supremacist worldview. For more information, please visit PETA.org.
