The idea of a chicken in a wheelchair naturally lent itself to jokes on a recent episode of “Saturday Night Live.”
“(Wood) should just eat the chicken,” a “Weekend Update” co-host quipped.
However, Wood is not laughing.
"Be more sensitive. I know it was meant to be a joke, but what if it was a dog?" Wood told NECN. "Any creature, no matter how big, no matter how small, they deserve to have a perfect life."
Wheelchair-maker Mark Robinson understands Wood’s objection but was excited his wheelchairs were featured on his favorite show.
"It was great," he told NECN. "I loved it."
