Joan Jett Runs Our Way in NYC!

Written by PETA | May 4, 2010

If you enjoyed rock ‘n’ roll in the ’70s, you can only love Joan Jett. If you just saw the film about her life, The Runaways, you can only love Joan Jett. And if you were walking by our literature stand at Union Square and 14th Street in New York City this afternoon, you can only love Joan Jett!

Joan Jett

Further proving my point that you can catch a glimpse of rock and roll glory anywhere in the Big Apple if you keep your eyes peeled, today vegan party queen Joan Jett was handing out copies of PETA’s vegetarian/vegan starter kit in Manhattan.

    Veganism is about as cool as the abolition of humanslavery… not very cool at all… it’s important but not stylish which is very telling of ‘style’ itself! Well anway Joan Jett clearly rocks to me and is clearly barking up the right tree in my opinion.

    OH WOW!! I just finished watching the movie The Runaways and turned on my computer and there is JOAN JETT on PETA!! I loved her movie and I love her for doing this with PETA! Joan Jett is a rocker with a heart! We need her in San Antonio for the circus protest to “ch ch ch cherry bomb” Ringling Brothers!

    Chrissie Hynde Joan Jett Leona Lewis Morrissey Paul McCartney Morrissey Moby Boston’s Tom Scholz and Brian May of Queen do all they can to promote and encourage the the humane treatment of animals andor the moral and planetary benefits of veganism and vegetarianism. Pianist Will Tuttle The World Peace Diet is another great advocate.
