Music icon Sir Paul McCartney has banned staff from eating meat, accessing social media and taking non-prescription drugs during filming for a new promotional video for his latest single “Queenie Eye.”
The 71-year-old legend is a long-time supporter of animal rights. Recently, he has spoken out against turtle farming in the Cayman islands, lobbied at Parliament for Meatless Mondays and spoke on behalf of Cruelty Free International to advocate for a global ban on cosmetic tests on animals.
A source spoke to The Sun newspaper about the ban:
”It was meant as a joke but, still, you would be out on your ear if you ignored the memo. Anyone found on Twitter, Facebook or nibbling a ham sandwich would be rejected immediately,” the source continued. ”Drug consumption might be harder to prove, but still…”
This isn’t the first time Sir Paul has asked his employees to abstain from meat.
Earlier this year, he reportedly demanded all workers setting up for his performance at the Mosaic Stadium in Saskatchewan, Canada be given a vegetarian menu.
