    Absolutely loved and agreed with everything Joaquin said. I guess you got to be a celebrity to not get bitched out for having those thoughts because I said the very same thing today on a page about people fishing and hunting just got nothing but grief for it cuz I don't make my living in front of a camera. At least there's one person hopefully people will take a lesson from. No that's the way you use your celebrity. :-) :-) Subject matter: :-( :-(

    I totally agree w everything vegans say.... except for the wool! Sheep love being shorn, yes they do, running off all naked m happy 😊 Maybe that’s just Australian sheep... and New Zealand sheep 🐑 Wool is a noble industry.

    Spot on! I don’t know how people can witness these killings and cruelty without being affected by it.

    I am against animal abuse. But, not all farmers abuse their animals. I think the larger mass producers tend to. And other countries like China are horrific in the way the slaughter their animals. I am on the edge of being Vegan. Occasionally I eat meat, but mostly not.
