California Pizza Kitchen

PETA says:

Smashing Pumpkins founder and frontman Billy Corgan is the latest star to speak out against the cruel practice of dehorning cattle. Billy is calling on California Pizza Kitchen to make the responsible and ethical decision to demand that its cheese suppliers stop this barbaric mutilation.
Billy Corgan says:
I have viewed the photos and watched PETA's investigative video of these procedures, and I was appalled to see young calves who struggled and writhed in pain as searing hot irons burned their heads. The industry has noted that the burns are so severe that they may damage the underlying bone. Other practices, which include using caustic chemicals to eat away at the horn-bud flesh via a chemical burn, are no better. ... I strongly urge you to take immediate action to stop this unspeakable barbarism by requiring your suppliers to phase out dehorning.
PETA points out that you can also write to California Pizza Kitchen to urge its cheese suppliers to stop dehorning. Very disturbing video below...

California Pizza Kitchen tells Billy Corgan: Stop Mutilating the Smashing Pumpkins

Maybe if Billy Corgan ever went to college people would care about anything he said not pertaining to music. Or maybe he could just start with not being an insufferable blowhard. Baby steps.

Actually his statement isn't too preachy or douchey. Was expecting much more from Corgan.

Meat Eaters have small brains that are incapable of realizing the pain they incur upon animals. It's a selfish practice and appalling to see such "humans" behaving so callous and blissfully ignorant.

12:49 I would take that information with a grain of salt. You do know that the website is funded by lobbyists for Phillip Morris and Standard Meat Company?

12:49 this is who funds that site- it's a scam!

Needs repeating.

does realizing that I incur pain on animals imply that my brain is larger? It's not blissful ignorance, then, it's blissful awareness. I am also aware that you consider my behavior selfish, but your opinion does not change said behavior in the least. Are you aware of that? If not, is your ignorance blissful, or is it miserable and shameful? I would like to confer on that matter, so that when I post a comment regarding your brain size and would not be so callous as to mischaracterize you when presuming to speak for you.

see, 12:37, you actually have a point. check the fossil record, yo. the earlier hominids ate raw vegetables, and they have smaller brians. The later ones, that got upgraded to Homo sapiens and beyond, have the big old brains, because they evolved to eat cooked meat, which was torn from the bodies of live mammals, while they endured horrific pain and needless suffering. They heard they liked big brains, so they ate brains, to put brains on their brains, but it backfired and they died of kuru. So go eat your meat, incur the pain, just don't eat the brain.
