Protesters will wear military costumes, combat boots and holster belts holding ketchup bottles. PETA is referring to their protestors as the "commando chicks" who will "protest the chain's cruel and hypocritical Cow Appreciation Day." They will also hold signs that say "Appreciate Cows AND Chickens: Go Vegan."
"Not only does Chick-fil-A slit the throats of a staggering number of chickens and scald others to death every year, it also mocks their suffering with tone-deaf advertising campaigns," PETA Executive Vice President Tracy Reiman said. "PETA's militant 'commando chicks' mean business when it comes to combating cruelty and turning meat-eaters vegan."
