The hip-hoppers have joined the campaign by the People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) over KFC’s alleged use of mistreated chickens, reports Yahoo.
In an open letter to KFC Chief Executive Officer David Novak, the Beastie’s have called to a halt to KFC’s use of suppliers that break birds' beaks or use growth-inducing drugs.
The band wrote: "You have a responsibility to tell your suppliers that what they are doing is wrong. By doing nothing, you are to blame for the cruelty that these chickens endure, which is truly sickening."
KFC have declined to comment.
