Vegan activists trashed a KFC, in Melbourne, Australia, with fake blood in a staged protest against the ‘animal abusers’.
Infamous social media star Tash Peterson – known online as @vganbooty – led the demonstration, carrying a megaphone, and accused the popular fast-food chain of participating in an ‘animal holocaust’.
Taking to Instagram, she said: “KFC murder six-week-old babies who are shackled by their feet, electrocuted in a bath of water and have their throat slit.
“The world’s longest and largest holocaust in history is happening right now in the meat, dairy and egg industries.
“Non-human animals are enslaved in concentration prisons where they are subjected to rape, torture, abuse and mutilation before they’re sent to murder factories where they are brutally murdered as babies (gas chambers, electrocution, bolt gunning and throat-slitting).
“If you’re not vegan, you’re an animal abuser.
“Abolish animal slavery, end the animal holocaust.”
Many followers praised her for ‘standing up for what is right,’ with one person writing on the post: “Everyone deserves their right to life, and not to have theirs needlessly and violently taken from them. If you love animals, please think about the hypocrisy of eating them at the same time. You can not humanely kill someone who doesn’t want to die. The definition of humane is to show compassion.”
Another added: “Truly inspired by your activities Tash. In spite of all that hate & threat, the way you have stood up for animal rights is actually a motivation to all us vegans throughout the world. Would have loved to join your team if only I was in Australia.”
However, others slammed the protest as an ‘act of vandalism’ and claimed it was ‘misguided’.
One person wrote: “Isn’t this protest kinda misguided? Like legit, the ones that are responsible for such ‘animal cruelty’ are not in a KFC franchise but in corporate boardrooms. This only serves to undermine your lil movement as the ones you’re trying to convince are going to be cleaning up after your mess.”
Another added: “Commits property damage/ disorderly behaviour in the store then posts evidence of such on social media. Not a bright spark. Enjoy the criminal record.”
