KFC Protester Tackled, Pelted With Chicken Wings And Hot Sauce

By Robert Paul Reyes

"A British teenager who dressed in a giant chicken suit for a protest outside a KFC restaurant said he was punched, tackled and covered in food.

Olly Tyler, 16, of Westwood, England, said he is a vegetarian and decided to protest outside the KFC fast food restaurant after hearing allegations of inhumane treatment of hens at the eatery`s factories, The Sun reported Wednesday."

Protesting against KFC wasn`t a thing this teen did on a lark, Tyler spent almost a $1,000 on a 7-foot-tall chicken suit, and he carried a sign urging patrons to "Boycott KFC Cruelty."

KFC customers didn`t take too kindly to Tyler`s vegan philosophy; they pelted him with chicken wings, chicken nuggets and even sauce.

To add insult to injury, the manager at the KFC told customers Tyler was part of a promotion. Tyler was successful only in attracting new customers to KFC.

Tyler has had it protesting KFC, and he has embarked on a less quixotic endeavor, the idealistic teen is now working for Greenpeace`s Save the Artic campaign.
