PETA is at it again. They are staging protests against McDonald’s over the treatment of chickens that go into the restaurant’s food. I am okay with PETA protesting (even if I am not in full agreement), but I am not okay with the way PETA is going about it.
Watch this video that discusses PETA’s methods:
In the video, 11 year-old Elijah is given an “Unhappy Meal” by PETA that has a Ronald McDonald on the outside of the packaging wielding a knife and holding a bloody chicken. The packaging disturbed Elijah so much that he no longer eats chicken. His mother is upset because PETA gave the meal to her little boy without her permission.
When asked about this, the PETA spokesperson replies that they are “trying to get the word out to children so they can make informed decisions.”
What? Since when is it PETA’s job to raise your child? PETA has no right to try to play parent. If they have anything to protest, let them speak to parents and adults. They have no right to frighten and bully little children into adopting their radical views! Next time you see PETA be sure to keep your children away. Who knows what they may hand your child?
