PETA to Hasselbeck

'Cluck You!'

8/2/2007 12:36 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Whoopi's long overdue employment announcement wasn't the only news on "The View" yesterday. Elisabeth Hasselbeck revealed the thigh slapping news that she has chopped off a chicken's head -- and PETA thinks that's just foul!

Chicken and Elisabeth Hasselbeck
After using hand motions to describe how to accurately decapitate a chicken, grossing out the audience more than she usually does, polite talk then resumed. Now Lizzy's in the soup with PETA, and they had this nugget for the right wing chicken winger:

"PETA has two words for Hasselbeck, 'Cluck you!' Next to Barbara and Joy, who expressed compassion, Elisabeth sat there chirping about the joys of killing defenseless birds. Conservatives love animals too, and she ruffled a lot of feathers today. Now that Whoopi has joined the show, maybe it's time for Hasslebeck's head to go on the chopping block."

Reps for "The View" had no comment.

Oh. Come. On. TMZ, you're better than this, aren't you?? Have you ever lived on a farm? The girl was on Survivor. She wasn't glorying about killing a chicken --- she was explaining the proper way to kill a chicken. My gosh, do you think KFC grows its chickens in the garden? Doh!

Cluck You PETA    

When ya gotta eat, you gotta eat.

Chicken is FOOD, you can't eat chicken unless it's dead. It can't be dead if it isn't killed.

Not everyone is a vegetarian and those who eat meat should not be discriminated against.

Screw PETA! They should worry more about those who are are abusing animals and less about those who eat meat.

If you watched the segment, it was the way Bitzy carried on with utter glee and typical smugness about killing the chicken that was the turn off. Then again, what do you expect when her response to Joy's concern about the millions of kids who are poor and uninsured was, "where are the parents"? A compassionate conservative at her best.

PETA is full of hypocrites! ...I bet only a handful of the actual members are vegetarians.

EVERYONE has eaten chicken..just because you didn't actually kill it...doesnt mean you aren't part of the ACT against the chicken. AND for the love of God..it's a chicken!

Farmers kill them every day so you so-called "Animal Rights activists" can sleep peacefully at night with your claims that you protect animals .. while you secretly eat AND love KFC. Calling Liz a witch because she killed a chicken is NOT only far fetched....but down right senseless. If chickens didn't die everyday....there would be a MASS problem in the USA. Chickens are born...to be eaten folks. If you don't lIke it? Move to INDIA where they worship farm animals....

PETA should go away! We eat chickens. Don't act all horrified because we have to kill them in order to eat them. Chicken is an excellent source of protein. Grow up and leave Elisabeth alone.

I can't believe what the world is coming to!

Nature is full of predatory animals and PETA is mortified at a chicken losing it's head? I wonder how butchers feel about this.

What idiots - they are, not Elisabeth!

Good grief! Do you people have nothing better to do. Chicken are raised to be eaten and when the processing plant herds them into a room with a metal floor and electrocutes them- do you people think that is a pleasant death. DO YOU EAT CHICKEN? Get off her back. She was on Survivor. She was hungry. Sheesh!

You all are fine ones to talk. How do you think your chicken drums and breasts are made? Or your hamburger, Bigmacs or hot dogs? Fastfood joints made nearly 60 Billion last year if not more thanks to you. Your sausages are made with ground meat , spices and oh yeah, BLOOD. Your meat is well packaged for you in the superstores and you really don't have to think about which country the meat came from, how it was electrocuted to kill it and then gutted. Most kids in this country have never seen live chickens, cows, goats, camels, rabbits, ducks. I could go on. The reality is that most people in other countries kill their food the way she described which I think is more humane than twisting the neck which is another way that chickens are killed in some parts of the world. They do it because they don't have sophisticated ways of killing the animal and they need their food.
