Louisville, Ky. – Below, please find a statement from PETA Senior Vice President Dan Mathews in response to Rob Lowe’s new role as KFC’s Colonel Sanders:
Rob Lowe just sold his soul to hawk the rotting carcasses of small, tortured birds. He’s lost all his animal-friendly fans, who are disgusted by KFC suppliers that pollute rivers and bays with tons of chicken waste, break birds’ wings and legs, and even scald them to death in defeathering tanks. Lowe should donate his fee to a chicken sanctuary, ask the public’s forgiveness, and then bail on this lame deal.
PETA’s motto reads, in part, that “animals are not ours to eat,” and more information about PETA’s anti-KFC campaign is available at KentuckyFriedCruelty.com.
