PETA plans to launch national KFC hearse tour in conjunction with Double Down debut

By now you have heard of KFC’s new belt busting, artery hardening, heart overworking, life expectancy decreasing Double Down sandwich and if you really need a reminder of how disgusting and bad this thing is for you, PETA will be there to jog your memory.

PETA will kick off its national "KFC hearse tour" in the fast food company's hometown of Louisville, KY. The hearse will feature slogans such as "Double Down Equals Quadruple Bypass" and "KFC Kills Chickens! And You?" The hearse of course being very apropos considering the Double Down’s 540 calories, 32 grams of fat and 1,380 milligrams of sodium.

"Not content with just killing chickens, is KFC is now taking aim at its customers?" asks PETA Executive Vice President Tracy Reiman. "By rolling out such a death-defying, fat and sodium-laden sandwich, KFC might be in line for an award from wreath-makers and mortuaries."

Ah the fast food industry, right when you think it can’t possibly have any more disregard for the health of its patrons another scale destroying menu item is announced. Hey Joe and Jill public are you paying attention?
