24 Celebrity Dads That Have Something In Common
Kudos to these compassionate celebrity dads
All the celebrity dads you see here are either vegan or vegetarian!
It is well known that animal abuse and torture is rampant in these commercial establishments. The miserable conditions in which animals are kept in or transported to slaughter houses and ultimately the horrific ends they meet, goes largely unnoticed.
However, there are some compassionate souls among us, who do take notice of the fear and torment animals undergo before making their way to our kitchens. These people appreciate that animals have feelings and thoughts, they feel pain and sense love, just like us humans and above all, that they have every right to live a dignified life doing all things animals naturally do .
Beyond story of these celebrity dads, Raw Vegan Zone believes that with increasing global population, demand for food has never been as high as it is today. Given this economic scenario, meat and dairy industries in particular, are literally making a killing . Factory farms and slaughter houses are working round the clock with the sole purpose of meeting this rising demand, most with scant regard for the livestock on their farms .
Back to the celeb dads: These exemplary celebrity dads show that opting for a vegetarian or vegan diet is a conscious choice anyone is free to make!
- Peter Dinklage
Pete’s reason for not eating meat just shows what a lovely guy he is. ‘I like animals – all animals. I wouldn’t hurt a cat or a dog, or a chicken or a cow. And I wouldn’t ask someone else to hurt them for me. That’s why I’m a vegetarian,’ he said.
- Kevin Nealon
“I became a vegetarian after I became aware of factory farming and slaughterhouses and the torture and inhumane handling of all these animals.” “There’s so many vegetarian foods now that are available at the market. The same with drive throughs. Now, a lot of them serve veggie burgers just like the restaurants are doing. So, it’s really very easy.”
Kevin says “I can’t wait for mealtime when I can chow down on the decomposing corpse of a tortured animal. I like knowing that eating meat makes me four times more likely to have a heart attack or stroke.
- Forest Whitaker
Forest says “Life is full of choices, and many years ago, I chose to become a vegetarian, and it was one of the best choices I’ve ever made.”
Whitaker also credited a meatless diet for helping him lose weight after his Academy Award-winning role in the 2006 film The Last King of Scotland. “I gained a lot of weight to play Idi Amin and afterward I got a little more serious about diet and exercise also, I don’t think being a vegetarian hurts”, he says.
- Travis Barker
“I feel great after every meal and I know that no animals are getting hurt in the process. That’s a win/win.”, Travis says.
“I’m vegan so for the most part I stay on that diet as much as I can while I’m out here. I juice a lot, I get as much protein as I can because being a vegan there isn’t much protein. But that’s pretty much it. I just drink lots of water, too. I’ll have a protein shake as well every morning.
A major recent health scare gave him the wake-up call to drastically overhaul his diet and lifestyle.
“I had a health scare earlier this year,” Barker said. “I went to the doctor and found that I had eight ulcers in my stomach, and then I found that I had a condition from it, from excessive smoking. I [also] had pre-cancerous cells in my throat. Right there, that was a game changer.”
“Some people don’t get that wake-up call, they just go straight to the bad news, so it’s a second chance,” he says. “I’ve been vegan since I got out of the hospital… It’s another eye opener. It changed my life in a number of ways.”
