PETA has lashed out at Kelly Clarkson and the recent news that she plans on celebrating her 30th birthday with her boyfriend, Brandon Blackstock, by turkey hunting.
In an e-mail we just received from Jenny Woods, Senior Communications Administrator at PETA, she says they are “very disturbed” by Clarkson’s choice to celebrate her birthday by slaughtering an animal.
This wouldn’t be the first time the American Idol has landed herself in hot-water with the organization, either. Back in 2009 Kelly was slated to perform at the Calgary Stampede in Alberta, Canada. However, after backlash, quickly dropped out, stating she was an “animal lover” and thought rodeos were cruel. PETA responded by saying they were tickled pink by her choice to ditch her performance.
So if rodeos are cruel, wouldn’t you think killing a turkey is cruel too, Kelly?
