This might be the question everyone is asking about Ian Somerhalder. Is he a vegetarian? He fights for the environment and animals through the Ian Somerhalder Foundation, is creating the ISF Animal Sanctuary, promotes animal rescue and more. But, what decision has the activist made when it comes to what goes on his plate?
Somerhalder sort of answered the question on his Twitter page, “Im not saying Im a vegetarian but I DO mostly ONLY eat from farms that treat animals with dignity& that are harvested humanely.Cruelty SUCKS.
“IT needs to end-CONSUMER power is the only way,start digging.Find out who’s cruel&help them to change-or shut them down!You have that power! [sic]”
It seems he is not 100 percent vegetarian or vegan, but what he does eat doesn’t come from your typical factory farm.
Whether or not you agree with Somerhalder’s decision to keep some animal products on the menu in his own life, we can all agree with the sentiment that we as people have the power to end the animal cruelty that takes place on factory farms.
Somerhalder has also posted graphic videos about the meat industry, and has a section on the ISF website about factory farming. Perhaps what we can say is that the animal loving actor hasn’t gone fully vegetarian…yet.
