Viva! Disappointed By Gwyneth Paltrow Chicken Video

Gwyneth Paltrow has upset some in the animal rights world with a new video on how to cook a roast chicken dinner. The actress, who in the past often talked about her macrobiotic and vegan diets, has flipped recently back to eating meat — and organizations like the UK vegetarian charity Viva! are less than thrilled with her latest “how-to”.

“To hear of a so-called vegan promoting the use of chicken meat is extremely disappointing,” Juliet Gellatley, the organisation’s director, said to the UK Daily Mail. ‘It not only condemns the cruel conditions that millions of these birds are forced to exist in, but it also shows complete disregard for the damage that the meat industry – including chicken production – is doing to an ever-fragile planet and to peoples’ health.”

She added: “If Gwyneth wants to promote healthy eating, she should think twice about cooking chicken. A medium-sized bird contains almost a pint of fat. It also releases cancer-causing compounds when it is cooked. We encourage Gwyneth to rethink her diet. She obviously does care, but needs nudging back in the right direction to veganism.”

While surprising to some, this isn’t the first time Paltrow has promoted a bird for dinner. Last Thanksgiving, the actress commented on how much she loves roast turkey — just days after telling PETA how much “a vegetarian diet is the best thing for her family’s health as well as for animals and the environment.”

Check out Paltrow’s cooking show video after the jump.
