PETA Praises Leona Lewis And BRIT Awards For Foie-Free Event
Earlier last week, Ecorazzi reported that Leona Lewis was outraged to discover the BRIT Awards was planning to serve foie gras and posted her disappointment on Twitter, saying:
“I was outraged 2 hear that the Brit Awards were planning 2 serve foie-gras at the ceremony. They hav now removed it from the menu,well done!”
“In case u didn’t no, Foie-gras is duck that is forced fed in a sickening cruel process and is banned in the uk.”
Long story short, the organizers eventually decided not to serve the cruel stuff and received a public thank you from Lewis.
Now, PETA is chiming in with their thoughts about the situation.
PETA’s Rose Glover said in a statement, “Learning that the BRIT Awards is shunning foie gras is music to our ears. Foie gras is too cruel to produce in the UK, and we’re pleased that BRIT Award organisers have deemed it too cruel to serve.”
