PETA Blasts Flavor Flav For Animal Cruelty

​ ​ ​ ​

Did you know that chickens are some of the most abused animals on earth?  Find out other facts when you read what PETA had to say about Flavor Flav inside...

 

 

PETA is going after Flavor Flav for being mean to chickens at his restuarant.  Check out this open letter they wrote to him:


Dear Flav,

Greetings from PETA! After reading about the debacle involving employees of your fried-chicken restaurant in Clinton, Iowa, whose paychecks bounced, we're writing to encourage you to bounce one more thing—cruelty—and make your restaurant vegetarian.

If you thought your roast was bad, wait until you hear how chickens who are raised to be roasted are treated! Chickens are arguably the most abused animal on the planet. In the United States, more than 8 billion chickens are killed for their flesh each year, and 90 percent of these animals spend their lives in total filth and confinement—from the moment they hatch until the day they are killed.

More chickens are raised and killed for food than all other land animals combined, yet not a single federal law protects chickens from abuse—even though two-thirds of Americans say that they would support such a law. Chickens on factory farms are bred and drugged to grow so large so quickly that their legs and organs can't keep up, making heart attacks, organ failure, and crippling leg deformities common.

At the slaughterhouse, they are hung upside down, and their fragile legs are forced into shackles. Almost all chickens are still conscious when their throats are cut, and many are scalded to death in feather-removal tanks after missing the throat-cutter.

There's no reason to cash in on this cruelty. You can have all the same menu items as you did before—minus the meat. Delicious faux chicken is available wholesale from such companies as Gardein, and loads of palate-pleasing recipes are available free on our website: http://www.peta.org/living/vegetarian-living/recipes/. Faux fried chicken is as mouthwatering as it is healthy and humane, and we guarantee that it will have your customers yelling, "Yeah, boy!"

We hope that you will choose to reflect the true "flavor of love" by making your restaurant vegetarian. If we can be of any assistance, please don't hesitate to contact me at MichelleC@peta.org.

Best wishes,

Michelle Cho
PETA

 

SMH......what do you think about PETA's attack?

PETA will do anything for

PETA will do anything for attention. If they want to be real...go after the car manufacturers for their leather interiors. Go after the NBA and NFL for using balls made out of pig skins. Go after the fashion industry for all those leather shoes and handbags. I mean if this aint the most rigotdayumdiculousness! If Flav weren't black and a hasbeen rapper with a one time popular tv show, they wouldn't even bother. I mean I don't see them going after Tyson's chicken nuggets. FAke azz people!

I cannot believe all of the

I cannot believe all of the Racism on these post's!! I mean, really.... "Cracker"!! COME ON!! Attention ALL African American Men and Woman who are posting these Ignorant remarks: Maybe PETA is a bunch of racist Caucasian individuals, I have no Clue or interest....... BUT Do you KNOW HOW STUPID it makes you look to use such a foul and ignorant language. Cracker mean not a food or some one who is on crack, or whatever else cleaver you thought i meant, it actually means a slave owner. Cracking : Cracking of a Whip!. If you feel like a slave in 2011, then im sorry to tell you my friend, your pathetic, get up, shake that chip of your shoulder and go get educated, make something, build something, inspire someone. I have a angel, he is 8 months old and he is a scandinavian-african american, he will never grow up to be anything but good, love and respect all living king, regardless their ethnicity, color or dialect.

ACTUALLY, You are the

ACTUALLY, You are the ignorant one... Crackers are indeed not slave owners but OVERSEERS. The term CRACKER is actually related to crackers like you eat. Most overseers were low income white people. They were called crackers because they could not afford bread, so they ate crackers (hard tack) which was cheaper and did not go bad and stale as fast. So before you jump to call someone ignorant you may want to do your own research! However the origin of the term dates back to the American Revolution poor whites main staple food was cracked corn. The term have changed and evolved over time just like the progress of terms for Black people ( negro, n-word, colored, afro-american, african-american, black, etc). Black people still suffer from pathologies from slavery, separate but equal, segregation, and intergration as well. The term cracker is not primarily based upon race (in origin) more so the socio-economic status of a white person. So PLEASE educate your mind and yourself before you step out here trying to reprimanding others.

Your putting people down and

Your putting people down and name calling is no better than what the original poster posted. Who are you to tell black people how to feel? Thank you very much. And by the way, most of us know what those terms mean. So take your superior attitude and stick it up your ass.

I don't understand why people

I don't understand why people think that just because someone fights for animal rights that they are neglecting human issues as a result. I agree that people are going to eat meat until the end of time. But does that mean animals should be subjects of cruelty, abused, or have to live in piss poor conditions? We as humans are going to die, does that mean we shouldn't give a d@m# about our lives-because its going to end one day? I believe in living life responsibly and just because God blesses us with things does not give us permission to abuse them. Now, expecting people to stop eating meat is unlikely, but we can make sure that these animals are treated with respect, just like we should for the elderly, abused and neglected children, and so forth. Why can't support ALL issues that seek to improve the quality of all living beings lives? Lets stop the ignorance!

I do agree that some of the ways this is done is wrong. We are so missing the point here though, Folks Checks Are BOUNCING. Flav is writing rubber checks. WOW!!! and who gives a DAMN about another celeb trying to get extra fame by screwing on camera and then.... "oh no, i didn't know about that" Yeah what ever Nicki, Rihanna, Chris Brown, Beyonce (well she didn't know), that Kardashian chick. Man sex tapes are wack, i'll pass.

@Tatum - I purchased Food Inc

@Tatum - I purchased Food Inc too and it grossed me the eff out. Two things though: 1) I know what WILL make people stop eating chicken; even if it's momentairly. Have you ever smelled a chicken truck? An actual Tyson chicken truck?? Let me tell YOU! I was driving on the HWY one day and smelled something hella awful and looked ahead and seen a trash truck so I figured "that's that nasty smell".............the trash truck pulled off of the next exit..............and the scent got stronger and stronger. The shit started coming through my heating vents. It was thick, humid, and smelled worst than 60 shits. It got into my mouth a lil' bit too. It was like an invisible film. I looked up and seen a Tyson chicken truck, then another, then another. THAT SHIT............................MADE ME STOP EATING CHICKEN FOR 5 MONTHS!!! The smell was so damn bad that it felt like it stuck to your skin and clothes!! Smell that, and you'll quit eating the shit............................................but I am having Popeye's for dinner tonight! 2) PETA, do any of you OWN pets? (dogs, cats, etc). If you do, than shut up with this "inhumane" shit. Pet "ownership" is nothing more (IMO) than another form of slavery. How do you "own" another living thing? And using the term 'Master" (You're the dogs "Master")..................wow!!
Colonel Stinkmeaner's picture

How the fuck is owning a dog

How the fuck is owning a dog or cat as a pet remotely comparable to slavery? Do you make you dog pick cotton and whip it? No. A pet/human is a symbiotic relationship. Both pet and owner gain something. The pet gets shelter food water etc. The human gets companionship, protection, etc.

I know you are sooooo right.

I know you are sooooo right. I used to live in a town with a Purdue Plant and whew!!!! Talk about some funky mess. The mess had the whole highway lit up (no lie). I can believe that you stopped eating it for 5 months because that smell will CHANGE YOUR LIFE!!!! Needless to say, that alone will make a person move. But I'm with you, there's nothing like fresh fried chicken. Not saying all the time, but when I do eat it--I go in. lol

LOVE PETA! People HATE it

LOVE PETA! People HATE it when they are EDUCATED on ISSUES. IGNORANCE is BLISS. PETA has a point that opening a vegetarian restaurant is a FAR BETTER CHOICE. People eat too much MEAT and they don't have a CLUE how that food is prepared. Urban areas have such high incidents of obesity and poor body images. Being FAT or looking like a stripper is NOT normal. Looking like Zoe Saldana and Chanel Iman is. People need to make changes and DIET is a perfect starting ground. And advocating for the end of Animal Cruelty is a great thing. GO PETA!
FURIOUS STYLES's picture

I, for one, am against animal cruelty, but I do not think PETA should tell anyone what they can or can't eat and what kind of restaurant they should have. Who are they to tell someone what kind of restaurant they should open up. If they have a problem with Flav's restaurant, they have a problem with the millions and millions of restaurants all over the world that serve meat. Some animals eat meat, some eat only vegetables, and some eat both. I'mma eat me some meat. It's called free will. That's what God gives us and no one has the right to take it away.
