Moby Considers Remaking Animal Rights Tee from 1996
Moby has been an animal rights proponent for a long time and he has the wardrobe to prove it.
The singer, songwriter, photographer and activist posted on Instagram a photo of a vintage t-shirt he found from the 90s.
“Just found this ‘animal rights’ shirt from 1996,” he wrote next to the selfie of him wearing the black tee with “animal rights” printed in capitalized letters across his chest. “So simple, I’m tempted to make more of them.”
If he goes through with the project, he certainly has a market. The photo got almost 1400 likes and lots of comments from people saying they would buy one for themselves.
Moby’s fashion statement might actually just be a relic from around the time he released his album ‘Animal Rights’ in 1996 but it does fit in with his continuous efforts for animals. He wrote an editorial for Rolling Stone explaining why he has been a vegan for years. He supported events against vivisection. He used his extensive social network to encourage hunters to stop shooting foxes for fun and to tell people to boycott Seaworld. All of that just earlier this year!
So, we have to ask. Would you wear it?
