FOWL PLAY — Guess who's not happy about that New York Times sexy chicken photo? Surprise: PETA. The group's founder and president Ingrid Newkirk told The Atlantic Wire: "It's downright offensive, not just to people who care about animals but almost to everyone. It's a plucked, beheaded, young chicken in a young pose... It's necrophilia. It's not amusing. It's just ghastly and sickly. It's not fitting for The New York Times." [Atlantic via Eater National]
