What’s Smithfield Death Star ??
Nathan’s Hot Dog Eating Contest saw three DxE activists dressed up as Storm Troopers from Star Wars.
The Death Star contrasts the largest US-based pig farm to the Star Wars’ mega weapon. DxE has claimed Smithfield’s Death Star in a blog post that it is Beaver County, Utah’s main factory farm. According to investigations, the company is doing horrific cruelty towards pigs. On social media, Exposed Smithfield Deathstar tags are becoming viral.
Smithfield Foods farm abuses are causing widespread concern. Other users can’t stop laughing at Joey Chestnut (this year’s Nathan Hot Dog Eating Champion) throwing one of the protestors into a chokehold to interrupt the contest. Social media users want to know more about Smithfield Foods’ DeathStar and are calling for PETA to expose it.
The activists that disrupted the event’s flow were taken into prison and later released. But they still face criminal Trespass charges.
Smithfield Foods’ DeathStar is trending due to recent disruptions at Nathan’s Hot Dog Eating Contest.
