PETA praises plant-based power of new vegans Jay Z and Beyonce

The People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals organization (PETA) is publicizing its appreciation for plant-based vegan dieters Jay Z and Beyonce, reported the Christian Post on Dec. 8. The celebrities are on a 22-day vegan diet that Jay Z said is designed as a "spiritual and physical cleanse."

"PETA praises Jay Z and Beyoncé for getting animals off their plates for 22 days and hopes that this great spiritual exercise will open their eyes to the suffering of all animals," a PETA representative stated.

PETA also took time to make a fashion statement about "the wonderful ones who are killed not for the table but for a coat, a belt, or a bag."

Beyonce's clothing choices for her plant-based adventure, however, had some questioning her understanding of what it means to be vegan.

"Beyoncé spent the majority of Week One of her vegan challenge wearing clothes that go against all the ethics of being an actual vegan. Last week, she wore a pizza outfit and a fur-and-suede combo," noted New York magazine on Dec. 9.

Those choices were followed by a cow print sweater to dine at a vegan restaurant. Moo?

But some defended her, saying that she made a commitment only to a plant-based diet, not a plant-based fashion cleanse.

The garment in question: A $5,000 Christopher Kane camouflage wool-blend parka—complete with a detachable “100 percent real fox fur collar," according to Ecoterre.

What do you think? Should Beyonce abstain from wearing animals during her vegan diet? Or is she free to flaunt her fox collar? Post your comments below.
