A radio station will no longer play the music of Grammy winner k.d. lang because the Canadian country star appears in a new ad campaign called "Meat Stinks."

KRVN in Lexington will boycott lang until she renounces the group People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals and her "fanatic anti-meat philosophy," Program Director Charlie Brogan said.

"This is more than supporting the local economy. It's part of our mission of ag service," Brogan said. "Her music has given her a platform. . . . We decided by not playing her music, we're not enhancing that platform."

The singer appears in the ad with a cow and says: "If you knew how meat was made, you'd probably lose your lunch. I know -- I'm from cattle country. That's why I became a vegetarian. Meat stinks, and not just for animals but for human health and environment."
