Days before McDonald’s annual shareholder meeting on May 23, a cast of 25 celebrities is urging the company to address its animal cruelty problem in a
new TV ad produced by Mercy For Animals.

The cast includes Alison Pill, Emily Deschanel, Moby, Matt Lauria, Daniella Monet, Joanna Krupa, James Cromwell, Kimberly Elise, and many others.

“If McDonald’s customers knew the truth behind McNuggets, they’d be horrified,” said Moby. “We’re a nation of animal lovers — we must do better. Join me in telling McDonald’s to stop allowing this animal abuse.”

Over 120 food companies have committed to stronger animal welfare standards, including McDonald’s largest competitors, such as Burger King, Chipotle, Starbucks, Denny’s, and Subway – but McDonald’s hasn’t yet.

This isn’t the first time celebrities have called on McDonald’s to improve its animal welfare standards. Late last year, Alec Baldwin, Kristen Bell, Joaquin Phoenix, and Susan Sarandon penned an open letter to the company.
