looks like DJ Pauly D
is DTF—Down to Feast (on
vegan food). After he watched the game-changing documentary Forks Over Knives, Pauly tweeted, "Just
Watched A Movie Called 'Forks Over Knives' Basically Changed My Life!"
isn't surprising, since we know that he likes staying in great shape and
to death." PETA
sent Pauly some swag to help him get started, including Vegan Cooking for
Carnivores and a vegetarian/vegan starter kit.
model Ireland Baldwin
is making her fridge as
green as her namesake. After PETA tweeted that some Easter candy is made from "excretions
of a beaver butthole,"
Ireland responded, "Well, @peta gives me another reason to commit to becoming
genes must run in the family: Her dad, Alec Baldwin, is a top-notch PETA
supporter, and mom Kim
Basinger is vegetarian.
and Ireland weren't the only ones posting sweet tweets for animals this week:
Morning Express host Robin Meade has also ditched meat.
Maybe Jane Velez-Mitchell is helping her find her
way to Veganville.
funny lady Ellen DeGeneres
will help audiences
everywhere remember that fish are friends, not food, in her upcoming Finding Nemo sequel, Finding Dory.
we'll leave you this week with an "Awww": a video of Pauly D's pal—and ours—Jay Sean hanging with his dog, Tyler. Yeah, buddy!

What's better than T-shirt time? "No
T-shirt" time! And that's exactly what the throng of Jersey Shore
fans got outside MTV's Times Square studios when Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino revealed his new PETA ad encouraging everyone to spay and neuter their animals.
Fans who couldn't make the unveiling
still got to see Sitch's sweet tweet that revealed his ad and gave some love to
PETA. And he wasn't the only one turning Twitter into an animal love-fest this
week. Check out what these other celebs were doing to help with PETA campaigns:
Morrissey sings about how "Meat
Is Murder," so, of course, he doesn't want any dead bodies around him when he's performing. For his appearance on The Colbert
Report, Morrissey insisted that the entire building be meat-free for the day. And when,
in true Colbert fashion, Stephen tried to rib Moz about his morals, the PETA
pal had some zingers of his own ready. "Animals are nicer than humans,"
he deadpanned. "If you stick your grandmother in an oven, she will
probably be tasty. But is that any reason to eat your grandmother?"
might be about to make a titanic impact on the way the world eats. The director
and newly minted vegan is challenging
environmentalists to adopt a plant-based diet to save the planet. During a recent speech, he told the audience, "I want to challenge
everybody here: If you're an environmentalist, I say, my challenge is, you can't
be an environmentalist, you can't be an ocean steward, without truly walking
the walk, and you can't walk the walk in the world of the future, the world
ahead of us, the world of our children, not eating a plant-based diet."
And vegan Emily Deschanel is speaking up once again. Her show, Bones, dedicated another episode
to animal rights, this time, to the cruelty of keeping exotic animals as "pets."

Here's the situation: Abercrombie & Fitch has offered to pay Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino and other Jersey Shore cast members not to wear the brand, saying that seeing the Sitch in Fitch is damaging the company's image. Well, Mike can't run around shirtless—at least not all the time―so PETA is sending him replacement clothing that's worthy of T-shirt time. Here's our mocked-up, fingers-crossed vision of what Mike would look like rocking a PETA tee:
Unlike A&F, PETA would be honored if The Situation were to wear our T-shirt and show his fans that real tough guys are kind to animals. By sticking up for animals, The Sitch would join other macho men with hearts of gold like Dennis Rodman, Amar’e Stoudemire, Waka Flocka Flame, Mac Danzig, Chad Ochocinco, Carey Hart, and Ron Artest.
We hope to see Mike fist-pumping in our T-shirt soon. In the meantime, you can pick up one of our "too sexy" tees for yourself at the PETA store at CafePress.com. As Pauly D would say, "Yeeeeeeeah, buddy!"

Here's "The Situation": Sexy Jenni "JWoww" Farley of Jersey Shore fame has launched her new clothing line, Filthy Couture. No word yet on whether or not it'll include Snookits, but PETA members everywhere united in a resounding fist pump when JWoww's camp confirmed that Filthy Couture is free of fur and exotic skins.
Perhaps this headline will be coming soon to a newspaper near you: "PETA Implants JWoww in 'Rather Go Naked' Campaign." Would you like to see that become a reality?

Almost all of us grew up eating meat, wearing leather, and going to circuses and zoos. We never considered the impact of these actions on the animals involved. For whatever reason, you are now asking the question: Why should animals have rights? Read more.
