Danielle Brooks—known as the feisty character “Taystee” on hit Netflix series Orange is the New Black—has adopted a vegan diet. The star posted an Instagram Story earlier this week featuring a pot of pasta with tempeh with a text overlay stating, “Vegan life! Day nine of the rest of my life??” Brooks has a large social media following, and her proclamation reached approximately 2.2 million followers. This month alone, several major celebrities have announced their intent to go vegan, including musician Ne-Yo and reality star Kylie Jenner—many attributing their decision to eschew animal products to vegan documentary What the Health, which debuted on Netflix this June.
