I never thought I would want PETA and Kid Rock to team up, but here we are.
People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) are calling on music superstar and one-time Bud Light can-shooter Kid Rock to help them end beer giant Budweiser’s alleged “mutilating of Clydesdale horses.”
Sending a letter to Kid Rock, the animal rights group asked him to stop serving Budweiser in his Big Ass Honky Tonk & Rock ‘n’ Roll Steakhouse in Nashville, requesting him to boycott the alleged cruel treatment of the legendary Clydesdale.
For years, Budweiser has been using the horses in their marketing campaigns, but PETA alleges the beer giant “quietly severs the magnificent horses’ tailbones—either with a scalpel or with a tight band that stops the blood supply to the tail, causing it to die and fall off—just so that the horses will look a certain way when hitched to a beer wagon.”
The Daily Caller reached out to PETA and received the following statement from Senior Vice President Kathy Guillermo:
“Only God knows why Budweiser gets away with such a lowlife thing as cutting off horses’ tailbones. PETA is painting Kid Rock a picture of the company’s cruelty to Clydesdales in the hope that he’ll make his restaurant a Budweiser-free zone.”
We also contacted Kid Rock and Big Ass Honky Tonk & Rock ‘n’ Roll Steakhouse for comment but did not receive a response by the time of publication.

But this new PETA that has a pure American fire right now to take down Anheuser-Busch is just… (RELATED: LOL! Bud Light Continues To Get Utterly Embarrassed On Social Media After Dylan Mulvaney Disaster)
