Shameless Star Emma Kenney Narrates New PSA About Tragic Realities Of Factory Farming


Emma Kenney recently took time out from her busy schedule that includes filming season 8 of the hit Showtime series Shameless to narrate a new PSA that exposes the animal cruelty and environmental devastation caused by factory farming.

According to Mercy For Animals, Kenney teamed with the animal welfare organization on the just-released animated video, which uses 3D animation to model the interiors of factory farms, revealing shocking facts about the environmental and ethical impacts of food production.

“When you picture a farm, you might imagine a peaceful landscape, animals grazing in big, open fields, but today’s farms don’t look like that,” Kenney explained at the beginning of the video. “This is what the average farm looks like today. You wouldn’t know because it’s tucked away in a rural place out of sight. Its 10 metal sheds are plain and windowless. Its perimeter is fenced, like a prison.”

The PSA calls upon millions of millennials to help create a world free of factory farms by cutting out or cutting back on animal products.


“I love animals so much, and I want to use my voice to inspire empathy and compassion for them. That’s why I partnered with Mercy For Animals to narrate their newest PSA,” said Kenney.

Kenney is the latest of a growing list of celebrities who have joined forces with Mercy For Animals in speaking out against factory farming, including Alec Baldwin, Joaquin Phoenix, Pamela Anderson, Emily Deschanel, James Cromwell, Mya, Tony Kanal, and Russell Simmons.

“Emma has been very vocal about her love for animals, and she certainly does her fans proud by lending her voice to this important issue,” says Nik Tyler, celebrity relations manager at Mercy For Animals. “We hope this new PSA will inspire people of all ages to move toward a plant-based diet and away from supporting factory farming, for the sake of the animals and our planet.”

Mercy For Animals is one of the largest and most effective international charities focused exclusively on preventing cruelty to farmed animals and promoting compassionate food choices and policies.
