Ellen Advocates for Fish Liberation with “Finding Dory” (But we still haven’t forgotten the leather shoes!)

Like us on Facebook:

With “Finding Dory” to come out this June, actress and talk show host Ellen Degeneres is sending a clear message about how she feels about animals in captivity. As expected, when the original “Finding Nemo” came out twelve years ago, kids all over the world ended up wanting clownfish of their own. Ellen is obvious in her message about keeping fish as pets: they belong out in the wild, just like Nemo and his friends, and not captured and in captivity.

Ellen, we love your message, we really do, and agree that fish as pets isn’t a fair or cool practice at all! But while you’re garnering support from animal activists, that glaring leather and wool shoe line problem has yet to be fully rinsed from our palates. It’s so important that when claiming veganism, we advocate for kindness not just in our diets, but in all aspects of our lives – and shoes made out of leather most certainly did not send that message to the public. I took a look around the Ed by Ellen website, and couldn’t easily find leather products, so hopefully that was all a thing of the past and Ellen has moved on! I would be fibbing if I said my trust wasn’t broken, though.
All in all, “Finding Dory” promises to be hilarious and sweet, and we have high hopes that some little animal rights activists come out of the theatres.

Don’t blame vegans for the shame you feel about using animals

The shame Carly Lewis claims veganism casts over her is more likely the ghosts of moral uncertainty, spectres that are more likely fish than cows, wondering how morality can possibly be used as ammunition in favour of murder.
