According to the BBC, the host of The Late Late Show, James Corden, has ditched meat because of his love for animals.
Corden told the Radio Times he gave up meat after reading about animal cruelty involving elephants:
I was upset about animal welfare while eating a bacon sandwich. I thought, “Well, you really can't be upset about elephants and not think about the pigs.” I hope I can keep it up. I will certainly try.
The comedian said that while he still eats fish, he plans to phase it out and become a full vegetarian. He added that ditching meat would be a “gradual process.”
James Corden joins the likes of Woody Harrelson, Moby, Miley Cyrus, Kevin Smith, Joaquin Phoenix, Kat Von D, Erykah Badu, and many other celebrities who use their platforms to speak out against the abusive meat industry.
There’s no doubt that celebrities can use their influence to change the world. Whether creating documentaries, speaking out against cruel factory farms, or sharing delicious plant-based recipes, celebrities are using their platforms to help farmed animals.
From slamming piglets headfirst onto concrete floors to tearing baby cows from their mothers, factory farmers routinely abuse animals. What’s worse, this systematic torture is actually legal.
Fortunately, by ditching animal products you can easily withdraw your support from this cruel industry.
