Jared Leto Uses The Joker To Show Us He’s Not Really Vegan

Like us on Facebook:

Jared Leto is quick to mention veganism when interviewed, but is another clear example of why I wish people who abstained from eating animal products would adopt the “plant-based” titled instead.

The musician and actor currently known for his upcoming portrayal of the Joker in Suicide Squad did some very non-vegan things while filming. According to co-star Viola Davis, the on-screen villain wanted to feel more evil in real life, delivering a dead pig to cast mates.

“He had a henchman who would come into the rehearsal room, and the henchman came in with a dead pig and plopped it on the table, and then he walked out. And that was our introduction into Jared Leto,” Davis said in an interview with ‘Women in Hollywood.’ The actor followed up this brutish act by gifting co-star Margot Robbie, Harley Quinn on screen, a rat in a box.

I completely understand an actor’s desire to get in to character to bring a great performance to a roll, but were Jared to really be vegan, these two unnecessary injustices to animals would not be an option. Using a dead pig and a live rat for shock value or entertainment, and in this case to let people know he’s taking a fictional character seriously, is no different from deciding to eat that same pig, or test cosmetics on that rat. Hiding behind the Joker doesn’t excuse the real and appalling choices Jared made.

I hope that people are able to see that pranks involving animals are still animal use, and that to be vegan means rejecting all forms of use.

    WTF? Oh well we all knew we wasn’t a vegan anyways and never was.

    If you paid attention to ALL the interviews, you’d know he has called himself a cheagan in a few interviews. He likes some cream based dessert in Paris. And ate a ton of ice cream to gain weight for Chapter 27. He tries though, never seen him eat meat & says he doesn’t crave it.

    Ok people.. what if you just don’t know a whole picture about everything?
    We (people) are ready to judge 24/7.
    I don’t want to say that the think he did is right or wrong. But I want to say this – maybe he is not second Gary Yourofsky, but Jared already did a LOT being vegan and motivating millions of others to follow the same idea… and maybe this move was not only made to just not to help with the role but also to wake up his anger to our fucked up food system. .. sounds weird, but I just want to say that instead of looking on little thinks about what person doing now we have to realize and respect everything that the person have done in the pest.
    Just challenging you to look on everything from the different perspectives.

    I’m sorry for my broken English (I’m Ukrainian) but I really hope that everything I said will drop some light on this complicated topic.

France’s ban of faux-meat branding won’t stop veganism

I’ll take “mycoproteinous food tube” over a tube of dead pig any day.

Concerned about endangered animals? Stop eating them

Methods of animal conservation that support the exploitation of animals don’t exist for the animals, they exist for human profit.

What you can do if live exports disturb you

The outcry should go further than importation and should be directed at the fact that the animals in question were on their way to slaughter in the first place.
