Philadelphia Chicken Man under attack by PETA
Well that certainly didn’t take long. Less than a week after a now local folk hero ate his 40th rotisserie chicken in as many days on an abandoned pier in front of a large crowd of Philadelphians, he has become the target of yet another miserable publicity stunt from the vegans and plant eaters at PETA.
Alexander Tominsky famously ate 40 rotisserie chickens in 40 days, culminating in a dramatic event on an abandoned pier in South Philly that was witnessed by hundreds. The event came complete with a red carpet and a dramatic playing of “The Streets of Philadelphia” by Bruce Springsteen, but as Tominsky stated several times, it was NOT a party.
Even the fact that the event was “not a party” wouldn’t prevent the spoil sports at PETA from trying to crash it.
PETA wants to turn the Philadelphia Chicken Man into a vegan icon.
“Each one of the 40 chickens eaten during this stunt was an individual who felt pain and fear and didn’t want to die,” says PETA Executive Vice President Tracy Reiman. “PETA can’t bring these birds back, but we can help the ‘Chicken Man’ become the ‘Vegan Man’ and save the lives of nearly 200 animals every year.”via Fox29
Just reading the quote above from PETA Vice President Tracy Reiman is enough to drive a sane man crazy. “40 chickens who felt pain and fear and didn’t want to die” makes my blood boil and almost has me getting up and going to the local grocery store to buy my own rotisserie chicken right now. Are these people mentally ill or just uneducated?
Sure, let’s forget about how hilarious this act was or about how it helped the city of Philadelphia recover after a devastating Phillies World Series loss the night before, with the Philadelphia Eagles having already played on Thursday night.
Instead let’s focus on chickens, a bird of which 9 BILLION are killed every single year in the United States. Wrapping in the Chicken Man to anything related to PETA is just another piss poor marketing strategy from the biggest loser organization in America.
This is why nobody likes PETA or vegans. I’m sorry but it’s true. Instead of just minding their own business. They are constantly trying to push their way of living and agenda on other people that want nothing to do with them. Honestly, if I was a vegan, I wouldn’t want PETA anywhere near me.
Hey vegans, they are making you look worse than you already are. I promise.
It would be a monumental disappointment if the Philadelphia Chicken Man decided to take PETA up on their offer to go vegan for 40 days. Allowing the activist organization to hijack his simple message of watching a man house a disgusting amount of rotisserie chicken over a 40 day period feels cheap.
The animal rights activists have already infiltrated the simple pleasures of the NBA playoffs. They have attempted to ruin Nathan’s Hot Dog Eating contest and Joey Chestnut, and now they are coming for one of our own in Tominsky.
PETA is choosing to say that the Philadelphia Chicken Man was complicit in the consumption of 40 sentient beings. That is literally not true. Maybe they should have focused on actual animal rights abuse instances that happen daily instead?
