Brad Pitt and Bill Maher Slam Costco, Speak Up for Caged Hens

Brad Pitt and Bill Maher are slamming wholesale chain, Costco, for selling eggs produced by caged hens, citing it's contribution to animal cruelty.
Pitt penned a letter to company CEO Craig Jelinek Thursday asking him to stop selling eggs produced this way.
In the letter he details the type of suffering the birds endure while living in captivity, which includes muscular atrophy.
Maher, on the other hand, aired his grievances in an editorial published in The New York Times last week.
He even went into much more graphic detail about the consequences of cooped up hens.
Both stars were speaking on behalf of Farm Sanctuary, an organization that advocates against the mistreatment of animals and factory farming.
