The former Baywatch star, 37, is calling for a boycott of KFC "until the company demands that its suppliers stop crippling chickens and scalding them alive," she said in a statement released by the animal-rights activist group People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals.
Yum Brands, the parent company of KFC, disputes the claims of mistreatment of its chickens.
Stepping up her anti-fur campaign, Anderson tells Jane magazine in an interview that people who wear fur "like Jennifer Lopez ... look fat and gross."
Anderson goes on to say: "Every season the furriers put propaganda everywhere that fur is taking off again and they give free coats to idiots like Jennifer Lopez and Puff Daddy. It makes me nauseous."
PETA, meanwhile, has taken aim at Kelly Osbourne for dying her pet bulldog Piglet's fur bright pink. "It is very irresponsible to subject a 13-week-old puppy to chemicals that most people aren't willing to put on their heads," PETA's Michael McGraw tells the New York Post.
