Well, the people at PETA were not too pleased to see Mr. Wade possibly working at a KFC and sent a rebuttal letter to him.
Here is the letter that PETA sent to Dwayne Wade:
Greetings from PETA. I hope this message finds you well. You can count all of us here among your many fans!
We’re writing today after reading about KFC’s offer to have you serve as an honorary captain at one of its restaurants during the lockout. We’re glad that you kicked KFC’s buckets years ago in favor of a different career, and although we’re sure you’ll not give KFC’s offer a second thought, we thought you would want to know of another good reason to reject any offers that the cruel franchise throws your way. While defenders know that “broken ankles” are a risk with your crossovers on the court, chickens killed for KFC often have their fragile legs broken when they are slammed into metal shackles, among other horrifying abuses.
Chickens destined for KFC’s buckets live their entire lives mired in their own waste and filth, only to be shackled upside down in shackles and have their throats cut while they are still conscious at the slaughterhouse. Several of KFC’s own animal welfare advisors have resigned in frustration, as the chain still refuses to make even basic improvements, including a less cruel slaughter method that would end the worst abuses of chickens killed for the chain. PETA’s Kentucky Fried Cruelty campaign isn’t just for vegetarians — it’s for anyone concerned with the cruelty that flourishes for corporate greed, which is why Reverend Al Sharpton hosted this video exposé and endorsed the campaign.
After learning about this abuse, will you take a stand for chickens by urging KFC to require its suppliers to use a less cruel slaughter method? Thank you for your consideration. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me.
