“Why doesn’t McDonald’s care about where its meat comes from?” model and animal right activist Joanna Krupa asks. “Its so-called Happy Meals are made from abused chickens who are kept in terrible conditions and forced to grow so large so quickly that they cannot support their own weight. Tell McDonald’s to stop this cruelty.”

Chickens used by McDonald’s are among the most abused animals on the planet. Bred to grow so large so fast, they often can’t walk without pain. Animal welfare organization Mercy for Animals created this video to urge McDonald’s to stop this horrible animal abuse.

Alison Pill, Richard Cabral, Emma Kenney, James Cromwell, Daisy Fuentes, Allison Scagliotti, Ignacio Serricchio, Joshua Leonard, Rick Cosnett, Juan Pablo di Pace, Stephanie Corneliussen, Kimberly Elise, John Salley, Matt Lauria, Kelley Jakle, Andrew Keegan, Daniella Monet, James Kyson, Devon Werkheiser, Moby, Mark Hapka, Josh Zuckerman, Alexandra Paul and Emily Deschanel encourage people to take action now so the fast food company changes their policies.

Hundreds of brands—including Burger King, Starbucks, Subway, Jack in the Box, and Denny’s—have committed to banning the cruelest practices inflicted on chickens. McDonald’s has not.
