This Is Ryan Gosling’s Response To Costco’s Shocking Egg Video

Ryan-Gosling-Chickens

Celebrity Ryan Gosling wants Costco to buy chicken from a supplier that doesn’t suck. CNN Money reports that the former Young Hercules wrote a letter to Costco in response to an undercover video of a farm the company gets its chickens from.

Recently, footage was uncovered showing the state of Costco’s chicken supplier. The footage showed the birds locked in rows of cages and featured dead chickens housed with live ones. The live chickens would then lay eggs on top of the corpses. It was pretty disturbing.

The egg cartons sold at Costco, however, feature chickens frolicking in green pastures.

Gosling, working alongside the Humane Society, has reached out to Costco’s CEO Craig Jelinek. In a letter, Gosling puts Jelinek on blast for working with an abusive chicken supplier. He also asks that the chickens be released from their cages and kept free ranged.

The chicken farm in question, Hillandale, claims that the footage from the undercover video was an isolated incident.

McDonald’s Canada Creates a Useless App to Protect Your Fries From Thieves

fry thief

It seems that fry theft is a pretty serious issue in Canada, as McDonald’s Canada claims that 99 to 100 percent of Canadians have, or will have their fries stolen at some point in their lives. That means not even Drake, Ryan Gosling, nor the mighty Justin Bieber are safe. The only safe Canadian is probably Wolverine. Good luck trying to swipe his fries without getting claws to the chest, bub.

There is a feature in the McDonald’s Canada app called the Fry Defender. It has a motion sensor, so you just leave it next to your phone, and if you ever have to take your eyes off your food, you activate the app’s alarm system. If any of your friends think they’re Danny Ocean and try to pull a heist on your fries by hovering their hand directly above your phone, it’s over, as the app will put them on blast and sound an obnoxious alarm.

Watch the video below if you’re OK with a Canadian dude saying, “aboot” and “have bean.”
Thank you, Canada for backing something that’s absolutely worthless. Just stick to ice hockey and Poutine.

Ryan Gosling is known for many things. Hunk, great actor, and even, “God,” are not uncommon phrases when referring to this perfect man. But cereal lover will never be one of them. “Hey girl, want to share a bowl of cornflakes?” said Gosling never.

Steve-O, Ryan Gosling, Zooey Deschanel & Others Write a Strongly Worded Letter to McDonald’s

You know if celebrities say it, it must be true, and it must be important.

In this case, a collective of celebrities, including Ryan Gosling, Emily Deschanel, Alicia Silverstone, Kristin Bauer, Bryan Adams, Zooey Deschanel, Wendie Malick, Maria Menounos, Steve-O and Ed Begley, Jr. have pieced together a rather letter of concern to McDonald’s about their egg suppliers.

Less than a month ago, McDonald’s dropped one of their largest egg suppliers after a report by ABC News shed light on the unsanitary conditions and animal abuse occurring at Sparboe Farms. Following that unnerving report, Target also dropped Sparboe Farms as a supplier.

And now? It’s time for the celebrities to bat cleanup. OK, I’m sensationalizing. Their letter puts their hearts at the right place, and uses their platform as a vehicle for change. It’s a worthy read, and here it is in full, adressed to Mr. Skinner, the current CEO of McDonald’s:

Dear Mr. Skinner:

After visiting McDonaldsCruelty.com and learning from my friends at Mercy For Animals that McDonald’s egg suppliers routinely torture egg-laying hens and their baby chicks, I have to tell you: “I’m Hatin’ It.”

On behalf of compassionate people everywhere, I implore you to help end the needless suffering of these animals by adopting strict and meaningful animal welfare policies worldwide, including the commitment to prohibit the purchase of eggs produced by hens who spend their miserable lives crammed into tiny wire cages.

While McDonald’s has already established a 100% cage-free purchasing policy in Europe, your U.S. restaurants continue to support egg factory farms that confine hens for most of their lives in cages so small they can’t even spread their wings.nearly anything that comes naturally to them. Common sense tells us that animals with legs and wings should be given the basic freedom to move.

Sadly, there is not a single federal law to protect hens from cruelty from the time they hatch to the time they are killed. While McDonald’s brags about the “billions and billions served,” millions of hens exploited for your restaurants are being grossly underserved. In fact, these animals are being abused in ways that would land your egg suppliers in jail, if dogs or cats were the victims.

In MFA’s investigative video, McDonald’s egg suppliers are shown burning off the beaks of baby birds without painkillers, chicks are shown trapped and mangled in cage wire suffering from untreated wounds, live chicks are slowly suffocated in trash bags, and dead and rotting corpses are left in cages with hens still laying eggs for McDonald’s Egg McMuffins.

While all of these abuses are unconscionable, perhaps the worst form of torture forced on these innocent animals is the use of battery cages. As you should know, battery cages are considered so cruel that leading animal welfare experts condemn them, and the entire European Union, as well as California and Michigan, have banned their use. A growing number of your competitors have already committed to only buying eggs from cage-free suppliers. It’s time for McDonald’s to stop clowning around and help put an end to some of the most abusive factory farming practices.

It’s a good time for some great changes at McDonald’s. As the largest egg buyer in the entire country, McDonald’s has the power – and the moral responsibility – to ensure that the eggs in its Egg McMuffins don’t come from rotten egg suppliers.

As a civilized society, it’s our moral obligation to prevent cruelty to animals – including those used in food production. Thank you for your consideration of this important issue.

Sincerely,
Ryan Gosling
Emily Deschanel
Alicia Silverstone
Kristin Bauer
Bryan Adams
Zooey Deschanel
