Does KFC really have a heart? The answer to that question is: NO!! I’m sorry, but as someone who cares even a smidgen about the well being of animals, I really can’t write anything positive about KFC…but it looks like they sure want me to.

Kentucky Fried Cruelty has just introduced a promotion for their new hot wings (aka spicy heart attack sticks) that will hopefully gain them some Super Bowl airtime.  Here’s the deal: if any football player or celebrity performer does the chicken dance during the Super Bowl on Feb. 3, KFC will donate $260,000 to the KFC Colonel’s Scholars Program, a scholarship that gives money to high school seniors who plan on attending public in-state schools.

KFC is notoriously known for having some of the most brutal and horrific slaughter houses and refusing, under any amount of pressure, to do ANYTHING that might improve the conditions for their animals.  You know I’m all for giving credit where credit is due (even if it’s a big corporation that I don’t particularly like) but this “generous” act is so obviously just a poorly disguised ploy to steal some precious airtime. 

The unofficial rumor is that Justin Timberlake and Tom Petty will be among some of the celebrity performers and that Ryan Secrest will also be hanging around.  Let’s hope none of them dance for the devil.

To learn more about why you should never, ever, in a million years, ever support KFC…visit Kentucky Fried Cruelty.

    That, and any time I have eaten there in the past my food has – um- revisited me later….enough to keep me far far away from the KFC

    I think this is a difficult situation to put the players or celebrities in. So they don’t do the dance and then they’re going to look bad because they don’t want to have the money go to charity. I absolutely would not blame them for doing it.

    I wouldn’t blame them, but I WOULD silently judge. Oh yes, silent judgement,,,the vegan’s secret weapon.
