Comedian, author and actor, Ricky Gervais may have a lot on his plate, but he still has time to speak out in defense of animals.

Yesterday, he took to Twitter to criticize humans’ exploitation of various creatures, saying that future generations will find the ways that animals are treated today weird. Gervais refers explicitly to dolphins held in captivity (by SeaWorld and its ilk), bullfighting, and the poaching of rhinos for traditional medicines.

This isn’t the first time he’s expressed such sentiments. He recently tweeted to his followers that they should boycott SeaWorld’s so-called attractions.

It doesn’t seem like SeaWorld is in anyone’s good books these days, after more people are watching Blackfish and learning about their highly questionable practices. In fact, SeaWorld recently made the list of the top 4 most hated companies in the U.S.

While many Twitter-users supported him, there were obviously some who weren’t so keen on his animal rights message.

In response, Gervais wrote:

So there we have it, it’s not human rights or animal rights. In an ideal world, it would be both.

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.
