Pretenders founder and PETA activist Chrissie Hynde will be protesting animal cruelty at the McDonald's on 40th and Walnut Streets off the Penn Campus at 12 noon today. The Rock and Roll Hall of Famer will be unveiling an "I'm Hatin' It" parody ad and appearing with a a fellow PETA person wearing a chicken costume, while handing out "Unhappy Meals" and urging hungry lunchers to "ketchup with the times." I'm not feeling quite so peckish, all of a sudden. Hynde will be back in West Philly on June 3 when she plays a special Thursday Free at Noon at the World Cafe Live with her new band JP, Chrissie and the Fairground Boys as part of the Non-Comm Convention.
