PETA Responds To Oprah's KFC Promo, Believes She Was Deceived

After we wondered aloud why PETA was so quiet regarding Oprah’s free chicken dinner promotion with Kentucky Fried Chicken, a rep sent us this official statement from the group:

PETA was horrified and immediately wrote privately to Oprah to enquire as to whether KFC had deliberately misled her the way it has been misleading other consumers on its Web site. Seeing how strongly Oprah had publicly criticized cruelty to chickens in the food industry, PETA believes that Oprah was likely the victim of the very consumer deception practices that PETA cited in its recent complaint to the FTC about KFC. PETA president Ingrid Newkirk wrote, “I believe you had no idea that KFC has refused to take any action to stop its suppliers from scalding birds alive and breaking birds’ wings and legs during live shackling.”

This angle is definitely in line with what some commenters were saying: that Oprah’s reps were given the run around regarding the chain’s factory farming conditions. What do you think? Was Oprah deceived? Or was there simply not enough vetting on the part of her reps to make sure this move didn’t contradict her earlier critiques of animal factory farming?
