Nice, Nice Baby! Vanilla Ice Is Vegetarian

Nice, Nice Baby! Vanilla Ice Is Vegetarian by Guest Blogger

We at PETA often refer to our love of vegan chocolate, but put this on record: We’re also fond of vegetarian vanilla-that is, rapper Vanilla Ice, star of DIY’s The Vanilla Ice Project.

“It opened up a whole new menu to me,” he says about going vegetarian more than three years ago. “I love it.” His choice very well may have saved his life. His dangerously high cholesterol level-more than 300!-plummeted to 133 just three months after he made the switch. There’s no doubt that his decision saved countless animals.

(If you’re wondering what could be nicer, we’d say vegan vanilla, of course!)

    I’m proud of him for going vegetarian. I don’t care that it was for health reasons rather than cruelty reasons. However people decide to make that decision is fine with me. In the end, animals are being saved and that’s what we’re all in this for. I am very proud every time I hear that another person has made the choice to become a vegetarian and make animals a priority rather than a food item. I have 10 pet rabbits and each time I look at them and think of someone somewhere slaughtering them for their fur it sickens me. To everyone saving animals for their own personal reasons, I salute you.
