PETA Still Angry Over Live Earth's Refusal to Serve Vegan-Only Food

PETA is calling out Live Earth’s co-founder and former Vice President Al Gore on ‘hypocrisy and sheer laziness’ for not limiting Live Earth festival to vegan-only food.

In a series of emails that were obtained by BuzzFeed, the animal advocacy organization pestered the concert organizers, demanding if they plan to serve vegan only food at the events.

Earlier this year, Gore, along with Pharrell Williams and Kevin Wall announced that they are bringing a second “Live Earth” concert series to a global audience this summer. Last month, PETA called on the trio, asking them to adhere to their own previous statement: “that dropping meat and dairy products in favor of vegan foods is the best way to reduce our carbon footprint.”

However, from the looks of the things, they continue to remain non-committal towards rolling out an all-vegan menu for this summer’s festivities.

“They either care about stopping climate change or they’re more interested in the appearance of caring,” Lisa Lange, senior vice president of PETA, explained in an email to BuzzFeed. “While they decide, the earth is dying so PETA is hoping they immediately announce that they’re putting their mock meat where their mouths are, and making the Live Earth events vegan.”

In response, a representative for Live Earth explained they do not have complete control over the food served at the venues where their events will be taking place due to existing agreements between the venues and their vendors.

We don’t like to call people names, but we’re sure Gore and the gang are aware that livestock production is a top contributor to global warming. So, hopefully, they quickly will heed PETA’s advice and serve up only vegan treats this summer.

It’s only right.
