Celebrities Support Animals

Three Hollywood heavyweights respond to factory farm exposé with disgust and praise animal activists.

On May 26, Mercy For Animals released an undercover exposé revealing abhorrent abuse of dairy cows at Conklin Dairy Farms, and a handful of disgusted celebrities have spoken out about the scandal. Last week, actress Jamie Lee Curtis and actor Christopher Guest published an outraged open letter to Ohio-based farm owner Gary Conklin and Conklin workers, demanding change and offering a petition for animal advocates to sign. Additionally, actor Alec Baldwin mentioned the video in a recent article on The Huffington Post, declaring that undercover investigations require risking ones' health and potentially ones' life, and that this investigation validates "the necessity and courage of the animal rights movement."
