Sure some people might have been a little turned off by the whole Iggy thing, but generally Ellen DeGeneres has the reputation of being a great big star with a great big heart.
Infact, Beverly Kaskey, senior director of the Hollywood branch of the Humane Society has just named Ellen one of the best on TV when it comes to raising awareness for animal issues. “Ellen took on the cruelty of hunting, cooking lobsters and even defended small insects,” Kaskey explained to the Fancast Web site.
Lisa Simpson, of The Simpsons is also highlighted for her vegetarianism (which I can’t help but wonder if inspired by Dan Castellaneta – voice of Homer Simpson and long time vegetarian). Kaskey says, “Lisa makes the connection between the lamb chops on her plate and the lamb she had befriended earlier and refuses to eat her dinner.”
Now don’t get me wrong, I’m super happy that Ellen does all this great stuff for animals, but am I the only one who’s itching to see Ellen join Lisa Simpson and take the veg pledge already?
