This month, Casey Affleck was supposed to be seen in an ad speaking out against factory farms and promoting vegetarianism, but apparently, network execs from The Food Network, E!, MTV, and others all thought the scenes were just a little too much for TV. Casey says:

“When people ask me why I don’t eat meat or any other animal products, I say, ‘Because they’re unhealthy, and they’re the product of a violent and inhumane industry,’” Affleck says in the commercial. “Chickens, cows, and pigs in factory farms spend their whole lives in filthy, cramped conditions—only to die a prolonged and painful death. Their bodies are then turned into food products proven to contribute to heart disease and cancer. To eat that is to eat poison.”

There is indeed a gory few seconds with some gristly scenes, but I don’t think watching that is horrifying compared to the actual things experienced by the animals.

    Most Americans are repulsively overweight, they can easily benefit from a healthy vegetarian diet. Thanks Casey Affleck! I do wish we can see commercials like that on TV, so that more people become aware on the pain and suffering we cause animals, just so that another fat kid, become a bit fatter…DISCUSTING!
