A protester interrupted a keynote interview with Jeff Bezos at Amazon’s re:MARS conference in Las Vegas last week to plead with the billionaire executive to help “abused” chickens.
The protester, identified as Priya Sawhney of Direct Action Everywhere, walked on stage to plead with the Amazon CEO about the welfare of chickens in factory farms.
“I am Priya Sawhney and I have been inside Amazon’s chicken farms where animals are criminally abused and I’m asking you today …” Sawhney said before security agents swarmed her and ushered her offstage.
“Jeff, please, you’re the richest man on the planet. You can help the animals,” Sawhney can be heard shouting from backstage.
Amazon does not own any chicken farms, but it does source chicken products from businesses that DXE has targeted with protests, such as Petaluma Poultry and Pitman Family Farms.
