The People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) are appealing to JP Morgan bank, who are repossessing the 4-bedroom, 4-bathroom home in Miami-Dade county, and asking them to donate it to be turned into a ’Meat Is Murder’ Museum.
“Our museum will remind visitors that violence may not always be preventable but that it sometimes can be prevented and that nonviolence begins on our plates,” PETA President Ingrid E. Newkirk wrote to JP Morgan CEO James Dimon, in a letter sent to RadarOnline.com.
“For instance, many wonderful flesh-and-blood individuals—who feel pain and fear as acutely as humans do and who value their lives in much the same way—are knifed to death every day for nothing more than a fleeting taste of flesh,” wrote Newkirk.
As RadarOnline.com previously reported, the bank’s process server has made repeated attempts to serve the former football great and actor at the house – but he is half way across the country doing 9 to 33 years in a Nevada prison for kidnapping and armed robbery.
With overdue principal, interest, fees and penalties, the debt is now close to $725,000!
PETA has long had a beef against the Airplane star, who was once a spokesperson for and a franchise owner of two chicken restaurants, and held a 50 percent ownership in eight Honey Baked Ham stores.
If the bank gives the go-ahead to their museum plan, they intend to include “exhibits that give visitors a sense of the terror that animals used for food experience.”
The ‘Meat Is Murder’ Museum plan would include educational displays that “highlight interesting facts about the animals who are so casually converted into sandwich fillings, that pigs rank higher on cognition tests than 3-year-old human children, and that chickens recognize one another by facial features, and that fish form friendships.”
They have even gone as far in their plans to design a free meat-free menu with riblets, veggie burgers, and faux chicken.
