The Grammy's Best New Artisti winners, the Zac Brown Band and their No. 1 song, Chicken Fried, is under attack. In a letter last week sent to theboot.com, PETA requestted that Zac and his band change the menu on their pre-show "eat-and-greets" to something more tofu-friendly. Currently, the menu includes plates of pork, beef and all the fixings.
"If PETA has its way, the 'Chicken Fried' singers will be hosting an all-vegan edition of their celebrated 'eat and greets' for fans," a rep for PETA wrote to us.
"We're writing today in the hope that you'll extend your love of freedom to animals," PETA continues, addressing the band. "In your song 'Chicken Fried,' you praise the simple pleasures of life -- a cool drink, a home filled with love, enjoying the sunshine -- all pastimes denied to the millions of cows, pigs, chickens, and other animals raised for food on factory farms every year."
Well Zac has responded, and it's a win for agriculture! No Carrie Underwood likeness going on here. Via Twitter the Zac Brown Band posted this.
"Dear PETA -- Plants are living creatures too ... Bacon had a mother, but so did Pickle. It takes life to support life -- welcome to the planet."
