Animal rights activist changes name to KentuckyFriedCruelty.com

No, it's not April Fools. Humm, well, all I can say is wow. I suppose it will get press, but will it also make ar activists look a little strange? Actually though, all press is good press.

Animal rights activist changes name to KentuckyFriedCruelty.com

NORFOLK, Va. A Virginia animal rights activist has legally changed his name to Kentucky-Fried-Cruelty-dot-com.

The youth outreach coordinator for People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals says he changed his name from Chris Garnett to support the group's anti-K-F-C campaign.The 19-year-old says his new name "never fails to spark a discussion."PETA's complaints against K-F-C stem from video footage shot last year recording alleged mistreatment of birds at a Pilgrim's Pride plant in Moorefield, West Virginia. The plant is a K-F-C supplier.Yum! Brands, the parent company of K-F-C, has disputed the claims of mistreatment. In June, a grand jury refused to indict former workers at the West Virginia chicken plant.
