A slew of celebrities is condemning the New York horse carriages and asking the public to support the idea of banning them as soon as possible.

In a new video released by PETA, a montage of a number of celebrities expresses their disgust with the horse carriages explaining how the pollution harms the animals, how they suffer in the stressful New York traffic and how they are denied a good resting place at the end of the day.

“Every time I see a horse drawn carriage with its nose in the tailpipe of a cab, and the blinders on and all the pollution and the congestion and the traffic and the noise it just hurts my heart,” says P!nk during the video as heartbreaking images of the animals working in the snow or rush hour traffic are shown.

The singer is one of the familiar faces who has already spoken out against the horse carriage industry along with Lea Michelle, Alec Baldwin, Pamela Anderson and Jillian Michaels. The video also includes a few new supporters like New Yorkers Wendy Williams and ‘Game of Thrones’ star Peter Dinklage.

“I don’t like the idea of carriage horses. I never have,” confesses Williams. “They need to do away with carriage horses here in New York and replace them with something better.”

The video ends featuring New York mayor Bill De Blasio’s campaign to ban the horse carriages in the city and replace them with vintage looking hybrid cars that will be equaly appealing to tourists.

“They’re not humane, they’re not appropriate for the year 2014. It’s over,” says De Blasio.

PETA is encouraging people to share the video with their networks with the hashtag #TYDeBlasio to make the issue an even hotter topic and move along that ban.
