Tia Mowry is the latest celebrity to take part in a PETA campaign. This time the theme is “Let Veganism Grow on You.” Most stars pose nude, but the very much Christian Mowry decided to rock with an apron made of lettuce instead.
As for why she joined the campaign, Tia says she felt obligated to after she felt cyber bullied. You can’t see me, but I’m rolling my eyes from here to Bethlehem and back again.
People really abuse that term “bullying.”
In any event, Tia had this to say:
I became a vegan and I was getting bullied a lot on Twitter and PETA reached out to me and they said ‘girl we’ve got your back’. And they sent so many cooking books and pamphlets and I was like ‘Wow, this is really cool.”
I wanted to become a voice for my community. That’s one of the reasons why I decided to be apart of this PETA ad campaign. I wanted to educate my culture about the benefits of becoming vegan. There’s a stigma about becoming a vegan, some people say ‘it doesn’t taste great’ [or] ‘it doesn’t taste good.’ Don’t knock it until you try it. The taste is very vibrant. Its very satisfying. [….] There’s so many great things about being a vegan. I think number one, I’m becoming more conscious about what I’m putting into my body. And I feel great because I’m making healthy and better choices. I feel so amazing after I eat vegetables or greens. I don’t feel sluggish. […] What happens to these beautiful animals is just mind blowing.
I think some people are afraid to [find out what really goes on with these animals] so they think ignorance is bliss but unfortunately not in this case. The more you learn about the benefits of being vegan, the more you become alive and the more you become aware of why it’s a really great decision. Not only am I helping myself, I’m helping the animals out there, I’m helping the environment—going vegan, I feel great.
Now mind you bullying prompted her to work with PETA, who constantly harass celebrities into doing their bidding all the time.
