KFC protestor Olly Tyler with the award he received from PETA. See SWNS story SWKFC: An animal rights campaigner was forced to abandon a protest outside KFC when he was punched, rugby tackled and pelted with food – while dressed in a CHICKEN SUIT. Crestfallen Olly Tyler arrived at KFC dressed in his bespoke Â£600 costume armed with a placard to protest outside the restaurant for two days. But within hours his feathers were ruffled when customers began throwing sauce, chicken wings and nuggets at the construction worker. He was forced to flee from his spot when one diner punched him in the head and two men jumped from their car to RUGBY TACKLE him to the ground.
