Vegan Celebrities Make Turkeys Dinner

Turkeys are treated to a special dinner prepared by Moby, Kat Von D, and Jamie Kilstein.

Animal-rights organization Farm Sanctuary called on vegan celebrities Moby, Kat Von D, and Jamie Kilstein to create a video entitled, “The Right Way to Serve a Turkey Dinner.” The video depicts the celebrities following “three easy steps” to prepare a turkey dinner—gather ingredients (cranberries and squash), invite turkeys, and enjoy! Turkeys Serena, Venus, Madeline, and Lurkey are seen enjoying their specially prepared meals. Moby asks, “Did you know that 46 million turkeys are killed every year for Thanksgiving here in the United States?” before Von D urges viewers to save a turkey through Farm Sanctuary’s Adopt a Turkey Project. Vegan celebrities often lend their fame to promote compassionate projects such as these, an effort that may help offset celebrity endorsements for non-vegan companies and practices.
