Los Angeles – Wearing nothing more than marks that mimic a butcher’s diagram—with her body labeled “shoulder,” “ribs,” and more—The Flash actor Violett Beane stars in a bold new ad for peta2, PETA’s youth division, that proclaims, “All Animals Have the Same Parts. Have a Heart: Go Vegan.”
The vegan Truth or Dare star, who also plays the classic party game with peta2 here, reveals what inspired her to bare all for the campaign in an exclusive video interview, saying, “[W]hether it be your family dog or cat or a chicken or a pig or human beings, we all have the exact same parts. We all deserve the same amount of respect.”
She goes on to note how strange it is for humans to drink cow’s milk—”[W]e stopped drinking our mother’s milk when we were really young. Why are we drinking someone else’s?”—and share some of her favorite nondairy dishes, including coconut yogurt and nachos with cashew cheese sauce. And thanks to vegan meals, she says, “When I go to the gym, I have more energy to work out. I feel so much better physically.”
Every person who goes vegan spares more than 100 animals a year daily suffering and a terrifying death in today’s meat, egg, and dairy industries—and drastically reduces his or her carbon footprint. peta2 offers a free Guide to Going Vegan on its website.
Beane joins a growing list of celebrities—including Noah Cyrus, Corey Fogelmanis, Sarah Jeffery, Emma Kenney, Evanna Lynch, Madelaine Petsch, Krysten Ritter, Skylar Stecker, and many others—who’ve teamed up with peta2 (whose motto reads, in part, that “animals are not ours to eat”) to promote kindness to animals.
