British star Ricky Gervais rose to fame as David Brent, the lead character in the original British version of The Office, back in 2001. He went on to become a well-recognized comedian, appearing on a variety of TV and radio shows, and in several movies. He’s made several popular tours as a provocative standup comic including one show named “Humanity”.
Ricky has been a big supporter of animal rights for many years. He has spoken out against fox hunting and bull fighting. In his Humanity show, he recently said:
…it’s awful to think of people eating dogs, but some people eat pork. I don’t, but some people do. And a pig is just like a dog, there is no difference between them…
When Ricky was recently invited to participate in the Hot Ones interview, where host Sean Evans interviews a star while they eat ever-spicier chicken wings, Ricky opted for vegan chickn wings from the “Temple of Seitan”. He also mentioned that his cheese days were over, so it certainly appears that Ricky is well on his way to being vegan. Good for you, Ricky!
