Actress Pamela Anderson is taking on KFC Canada’s parent company, calling for an international boycott of the fast-food chain for what she calls the cruel treatment of its chickens. “If people knew how KFC treats its chickens, they’d never eat another drumstick,” Ms. Anderson said in a letter faxed to John Botive, chairman of Priszm Brandz, at the company’s headquarters north of Toronto yesterday. Ms. Anderson joins Paul McCartney and hip-hop mogul Russell Simmons in an international campaign against KFC by the People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals. The B.C. native and animal rights activist accused KFC of scalding live birds and using crippling drugs. “I am shocked to learn that KFC has refused to take steps to eliminate some of the worst abuses suffered by the hundreds of millions of chickens who are killed for your restaurants in Canada, the U.S., and overseas,” she wrote.
