Ryan Gosling hates McDonald’s and asks the company to “stop clowning around”

An undercover video was released in November that documented the cruelty hens face at Sparboe Egg Farms, who, until recently, were the primary egg providers for McDonald’s locations in the United States. Despite efforts by McDonald’s to cut ties with Sparboe, an unhappy group of celebrity chicken advocates—including Ryan Gosling, Emily Deschanel, Alicia Silverstone, Kristin Bauer, Bryan Adams, Zooey Deschanel, Wendie Malick, Maria Menounos, Steve-O, and Ed Begley Jr.—have sent a letter to McDonald’s CEO Jim Skinner that highlights how angry they are with the brand’s acceptance of animal cruelty. The letter notes that these farms are a breeding ground for dead and rotting corpses left in cages and how commonplace it is to find baby birds with singed beaks and others trapped and mangled in cage wire. The Almighty Goz protects human beings and chickens. Swoon. Check out the full letter »
