Ceo - Ke$ha Offers To Pay For Mcdonald's Slaughterhouse Revamp

Pop star KE$HA has offered to personally fund the installation of new equipment at MCDonald's slaughterhouses in a bid to end alleged fowl cruelty.
In a letter sent to MCDonald's Ceo Jim Skinner, on behalf of animal rights group People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (Peta), she reveals she "practically puked" after learning the fast food chain is "spending more than a billion dollars on store renovations but won't invest a dime to upgrade its suppliers' archaic slaughterhouses".
Ke$ha writes, "Please explain why you won't listen to your company's own advisory panel and follow the lead of MCDonald's in Europe by switching to the modern method that would spare chickens killed for MCNuggets from having their legs and wings broken, having their throats slashed while they're still conscious, and being scalded to death in de-feathering tanks."
Offering to help fund the changeover, she adds, "If the cost is what troubles you - despite the fact that your profits are way up because everyone eats cheap during a recession - let's talk. I may not have the $ (money) that the Golden Arches (MCDonald's) has to throw around, but I'd be glad to lend a hand in helping bring your suppliers' slaughter practices into the 21st century."
