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.

The View should just be off the air. Rosie was a fat pig on the show. Barbara is a sell out for ratings. Joy is just a fire crotch bitch. Just let Whoppi have her own show. Let The View RIP!!!!!!!

Isn't cutting a chicken's head off the LEAST cruel way to kill it? Or is PETA saying anyone who's not a vegetarian is evil now? Oh, and real professional - you're really going to make a lot of impact saying childish things like "cluck you". Why doesn't TMZ have an article about PETA going after Michael Vick, dog-fighter extraordinaire? HE'S a monster, not Elizabeth. I've cut a head off a chicken too. BIG DEAL! And what's with "conservatives love animals too"? Was it largely accepted that all conservatives do NOT love animals? Thanks for clearing up THAT bigot generalization. What twelve-year-old gradeschool-dropout is in charge of their public statements? Oh, and I would have sent these comments to PETA themselves, but because they make stupid statements like this, they don't have an address to email to, or they'd have to hire a full time staff just to read through complaint letters. They just have a street address to send snail mail. Real gutsy!

To "meat is murder" - you are missing the point of my comment. God gave us meat, therefore you can assume it is okay to consume the meat. Veggies are a side dish to the meat. We should not feel guilty because we eat it. It is a part of the circle of life.

What do you think of animals that eat animals? Why don't you go educate the king of the jungle on the benefits of tofu.

Conservative and Compassion cannot exist in the same sentence (even though conservatives love to talk about compassion). The very basis of conservatives is selfishness hidden under the guise of religion and righteousness(a wolf in sheep's clothing you could say). Therefore, it isn't suprising that Elizabeth shows no compassion for animals or humans because she is a conservative. It's one thing to kill a chicken to eat, it is quite another to ENJOY the act of killing a chicken, which is the case here. Yea, this is not comparable to the viciousness of Michael Vick, but just this one act epitomizes her true nature.

"meat is murder" Your posts are becoming increasingly psychotic and verging on insane. No one will take you seriously when you get all loony tunes. You have no business damning anyone because they eat meat. Get over it. No one asked you to kill a chicken, cow or pig on their behalf. Live and let live. Enjoy your fungus and tofu.

Yuck    

At least she cut their heads off Rosie O'Donnell would just bite their heads off and chomp away!!!!

No one will ever be happy with anyone who's on the View so just cancel it and put Jerry Springer on twice a day.

Jerry Jerry Jerry!!!!

It cracks me up how Hollywood liberals hate Elizabeth. For years, there was no moderate voice being heard on the View--only far-left liberals. Now there's finally a single conservative voice on the panel, and TMZ wants her fired. What are you so afraid of?

The PETA issue is one completely separate issue.
This is about Lizzie's brain or lack there of.
There is a time and place for such discussions and killing animals in this current environment with the Vick story so fresh on everyone's mind.
She should have the brains to not share this story on national TV to this particular audience. Perhaps if she was at a biker bar it would be funny conversation.
Plus she is too dumb to realize that there are sensitive subjects to her viewing audience.
She is on a show that caters to a specific audience and WWE this is not.
Even those who grew up on chicken farms would know better than to brag about this is public.
Lack of common sense.

"God gave us meat, therefore you can assume it is okay to consume the meat."

Actually, God did not place dead animals on the earth. They aren't meat. They're animals. Animals that we do NOT need to survive because we have evolved past that point.

That's damning people. Don't kid yourself. You are judging people who eat meat.

Pass it around the table, with a side of mashed potatoes:

Nothing wrong with it!
