When pop sensation Ke$ha learned that McDonald’s McCruelty is
spending more than $1 billion on renovating its restaurants while still
refusing to require its suppliers to upgrade to a less cruel method of
slaughtering chickens, she fired off a letter to McDonald’s CEO Jim Skinner calling out
the company for its “Sleazy” behavior. The
singer is even putting her money where her mouth is by offering McDonald’s cash
to help with the transition to a more humane slaughter system: “I may
not have the $ that the Golden Arches has to throw around, but I’d be glad to
lend a hand in helping bring your suppliers’ slaughter practices into the 21st
century.”

The social, inquisitive chickens killed for McNuggets have their legs
and wings broken and their throats cut, and many are dunked into the scalding
water of defeathering tanks while still conscious. Meanwhile, Skinner and
McDonald’s continue to ignore the recommendation of the company’s own animal
welfare panel, which has endorsed a slaughter method that renders the birds unconscious at the start of the
slaughtering process. This method,
which has been
approved the U.S. Department of Agriculture, is already in use by McDonald’s
suppliers in Europe, so there’s no excuse for allowing American suppliers to
continue with such cruelty.

Tell McDonald’s to require
American suppliers to switch to the less cruel slaughter method. As Ke$ha might
say, “TiK ToK,” the switch can’t come a moment too soon for chickens.
