KRYS Holds 'DJs Eating Tasty Animals' Protest In Response To PETA

CLEAR CHANNEL Country KRYS/CORPUS CHRISTI personalities held a counter-protest YESTERDAY (6/15) after PETA staged a demonstration against the RINGLING BROS. CIRCUS, which is scheduled to arrive in CORPUS CHRISTI later this month. The PETA protest involved a woman wearing only a black bikini bottom, laid out on the sidewalk with her ankles shackled. According to a PETA representative, the effort was aimed at bringing attention to their cause.
Next to the PETA protest, KRYS set up a grill with hot dogs being roasted and called their protest DJETA. Animal crackers were also served and the station asked listeners to donate bags of pet food for local shelters.
Morning co-host MARK WINTROW said: "We're DJETA ... that's d-j-e-t-a, 'DJs Eating Tasty Animals,' that's what we stand for …The difference between PETA and DJETA, at K-99, is that PETA shows up, puts a naked woman on the sidewalk and calls it a protest. Where as we come out and collect food, dog food and cat food for the local shelters here in town. We defend PETA's right to protest just as much as we defend our right to serve every single hot dog that we can cook today.”
