PETA Holds Zombie Protest in Front of KFC

Over 100 people dressed up as zombies gathered outside of the KFC in Herald Square on Saturday as part of PETA’s Basket case download.kentuckyfriedcruelty.com/index.asp”>Kentucky Fried Cruelty campaign to protest KFC’s terrible treatment of chickens. 

“Even flesh-eating zombies have nothing on the Colonel’s cruelty,” says PETA’s Dan Shannon in a press release. “We’re urging consumers not to set foot inside a KFC restaurant until the company stops these abuses.”

The protestors held signs saying “I’d rather be dead than eat KFC,” but since zombies are known to eat humans, perhaps the alternative is not so great.

    The next time I see PETA protesting in front of a restaurant, I’ll make it a point to go inside said restaurant, order out and eat the (probably delicious) food in front of the protesters.

    Where are the baby harp seals?

    Peta now has everyone’s attention again. Why does everyone like meat anyways. Veagan is way healthier and no animals are harmed.

    Since when did this turn into the YouTube comments section?

    @ Valerie: Hi.

    @ Jenifer: And what are they doing? Protesting the fact that people are eating good food?

    @ Valerie: Hi again. I really wish you don’t mean that. But, alas, you’re probably from PETA, so you probably do. I intended my comment about the baby harp seals to be funny. I don’t really want baby harp seals to die. Have you seen the pictures?? ADORABLE!

    But, I guess you don’t understand my sense of humor.

    But regardless, after I read about PETA trying to put up an ad in a Canadian paper, comparing the beheading of a man on a Greyhound bus to the slaughter of animals…Well, I lost whatever respect I had for the organization. Not that I had much to begin with.

    So protest all you want. You’re not stopping me from eating my meat.

    Good job PETA. When people respond in a negative way I love it! It means a nerve was touched. If they were confident in their lifestyle and ways , they would shrug it off.
    Peta is standing up for something they believe in. I suggest you get off the computer and find your cause to fight for :)

    While I admire PETA’s dedication, personally I have two types of teeth in my mouth – those for vegetable matter and those for meat. I’m happy being a meat eater who chooses her sources carefully and loves almost all vegetables.

    Everyone has the right to voice their own opinions; but how you choose to live your life is your own right as well. I think we all need to practice respect with one another more.

    Thank you and have a nice day!
