Alt-rock band, Garbage, had a message to share with their nearly 743,000 Facebook fans recently:

“Anyone who hurts or neglects an animal is a revolting piece of scum.”

Their simple statement has garnered over 3,900 “likes” so far.

Garbage frontwoman, Shirley Manson, has lent her voice to animal rights causes in the past, including in a PETA public service announcement (PSA) about fur in 2007. In an interview at that time with peta2.com, Manson said, “A lot of my own fans have educated me on this kind of thing. A lot of my fans are very pro-animal rights and often, when I have been wearing fake fur, have said, ‘Is that real?’ and really gotten upset, and I have had to reassure them, ‘No, it’s cool. It’s fake, don’t worry.’ They have made me very conscious of it, and I am really grateful that they have made me pay attention.”

    Always been a fan of Garbage – it’s nice to hear they are pro-animal.

    • Pro-animal, anti-peta

      Let’s face it, if animal abusers are scum then peta president Ingrid Evil Newkirk (whose group should stop killing animals for no reason) is the dumbest scum of all.

Veld donates money to farm animals and also serves them

Lest we be confused that their giant V logo stands for anything other than Veld.

Trading beef for beans is not a solution, veganism is

Please do substitute beef for beans, but also have tofu instead of turkey, carrots instead of chicken, and I think you see where I’m going.

Guys, extortion isn’t an effective form of vegan advocacy

Assuming we can extort people into respecting the lives of others makes no sense.
