A new People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) ad promoting vegetarianism during Thanksgiving features Paul McCartney, international news sites reported on Friday, November 16, 2012.
In the ad as shown on this article, McCartney is wearing a T-shirt with the words printed “Eat No” followed by an image of a turkey below it. A message, “Say ‘No, Thanks’ to Turkey,” is printed followed by a “Go Vegetarian” message below.
According to reports, PETA will use the new campaign throughout the holiday season to promote meat-free holiday meals.
Paul McCartney reportedly said that he celebrates Thanksgiving with a veggie roast:
“We eat a veggie roast at home, so if we have traditional moments like Christmas … the roast is perfect. It’s completely vegetarian, but I can slice it, so I can do all my traditional dad things. We can do our family stuff with it, and it’s delicious, so I much prefer that to my memory of turkey,” McCartney was quoted as saying in a report.
According to PETA, more than 45 million turkeys die each year at Thanksgiving alone, and more than 22 million turkeys die during Christmas.
