PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals) has come out swinging at Chef du Jour and mega popular reality television star, Gordon Ramsay, after "carefully edited" footage of two piglets being slaughtered was broadcast on his TV show The F Word.
PETA spokesperson Anita Singh is disgusted that Ramsay and producers preferred to show viewers a sanitized version of events. PETA requested that the full exposure of the piglet dispatching was shown to viewers.
Singh says, "Despite the considerable hype which indicated that The F Word would show the full horror of the slaughter of piglets Trinny and Susannah, all of the most impacting portions of the slaughter were carefully edited out. For you to sanitize the slaughter is deceitful and stands to be corrected. Viewers should not be presented with a comfy view of needless killing."
