PETA will unveil its controversial anti-McDonald's chicken statue in Raleigh tomorrow, and the group is hoping it will have residents declaring, "I'm hatin' it."
The 5-1/2-foot-tall statue, which was designed by New Yorker cartoonist Harry Bliss, features a "bloody" chicken on crutches and reads, "McCruelty: I'm hatin' it."
The statue was created because PETA is "hatin'" the fact that McDonald's refuses to require its suppliers to switch to a less cruel poultry-slaughter method. The statue has sparked controversy in other U.S. cities before making its debut in downtown Raleigh.
The statue will be unveiled in downtown Raleigh at noon on Wednesday in front of the CVS Pharmacy at the intersection of Fayetteville and West Hargett streets.
