Aziz Ansari Criticizes the Cruelty of Egg Production

Master of None creator integrated impressions of rapper Ja Rule to emphasize the abuses that happen to chickens on factory farms.

Mercy For Animals recently released a three-minute stand-up clip from actor/comedian Aziz Ansari explaining the fate of male layer chicks. “They just get murdered in insane ways,” Ansari said. “They’ll take all the male layer chicks and throw them into a big chicken wood chipper. Another thing they’ll do is they’ll put them in a big plastic bag, and put a lid on it and suffocate them to death.” The clip is from his Live at Madison Square Garden DVD released earlier this year. The comedian even integrates impressions of rapper Ja Rule to get the point across, using his famous lyrics such as “it’s murder” and “put it on me.” “If only you knew how long it’s taken me to find the perfect stand-up bit to showcase my frustrations with the meat industry and my flawless Ja Rule impression, then you’d know my struggle,” Ansari concluded.
