Queen guitarist and animal rights activist Brian May is applauding the efforts of Black Sabbath bassist Geezer Butler in his fight to stop the production and distribution of foie gras, which is made from the liver of a duck or goose that has been specially fattened.

May says, "This is one of the ugliest remaining practices in food production, wherein birds are immobilized for their whole lives and force-fed through a tube... The manufacture of this disgusting food is now illegal in Britain, yet many restaurants still choose to sell it, imported from elsewhere. Geezer is calling for a boycott of certain U.K. restaurants until they remove foie gras from the menu... So, if you want to help end this awful practice, please ask before you sit down to eat in one of these posh places. And if they still serve cruelty food, please tell them exactly why you will not eat there."
