By now, you probably know what President Obama thinks about Kanye's VMA stunt.
We want the president to rest assured that PETA, for one, can sympathize with his sentiments. After all, this isn't the first time that Kanye has been insensitive to the feelings of others.

Don't worry, he's still John James Preston, but Big? Not so much.
A vegetarian cleanse helped Chris Noth slim down so that he could reprise his role as the charming commitmentphobe in Sex and the City 2. When asked how he got that body into shape, he said, "It was a total vegetarian diet … I've never been a vegetarian, but the way [the Island Experience in Brazil] prepare[s] it is exquisite."
Even though he left Carrie at the altar in Part 1, if he makes this new vegetarian lifestyle permanent, it might make me forgive him in time for Part 2. There's really no better way to stay trim, healthy, and compassionate … you can bet your cosmo on that.

The tweets were flying this weekend after a certain musician took over the mic as Taylor Swift happily accepted her first Moonman. (Stay classy, Kanye.)
Little did those angry tweeters know that Kanye was not the only mic takeover artist this weekend. As McDonald's CEO was stepping up to receive an award (no, not a VMA—they don't give out Moonmen for cruelty), a protester beat him to the podium and blasted him for McDonald's suppliers' inhumane slaughter practices.
"Shame on you, Jim Skinner," indeed!

Almost all of us grew up eating meat, wearing leather, and going to circuses and zoos. We never considered the impact of these actions on the animals involved. For whatever reason, you are now asking the question: Why should animals have rights? Read more.
