PETA’s Beef With Madonna’s Kosher Meat

Written by PETA | September 3, 2009 / CC

Some celebrities make animal-friendly demands when they’re on tour, but Madonna isn’t one of them.

We already knew the Material Girl was a fur hag. Now, she’s added to her animal-unfriendly rep by purchasing 110 pounds of kosher meat for the last two performances of her “Sticky and Sweet” tour in Tel Aviv.

We immediately sent her a letter explaining that most imported kosher beef sold in Israel comes from Uruguay, where cattle are often shackled and violently wrestled to the ground before having their throats cut and being hoisted into the air by their hind legs—a cruel “shackle and hoist” slaughter method that the Chief Rabbinate of Israel has called “primitive” and has promised to phase out.

Instead of ordering her weight in meat, Madge would win over more fans if she gave a compassionate diet a try.

    Lisa I could not agree more. Everyone needs to be truthful to themselves whether that is living as a vegan or consciously consuming meat for reasons none of us have any right to judge. If being a vegan is about compassion why is everyone here so damn judgemental? I would choose not to eat meat because I have compassion for animals AND it is personally right for me and because it makes me feel healthier. Not because I was bullied into it by judgemental and UNcompassionate people. If my health started to decline as a vegan I would readdress the situation. And this is exactly what I have done. Lisa I hope you found some useful info amongst the hate there is alot of great out there on eating a plant based diet I think we can all benefit from heading more in that direction. You may choose to continue eating small amounts of meat if your metabolic type is more on the protein side. As a warning I have given myself insulin resistance from my vegan diet my periods have stopped I gained about 7kg and I have acne low energy and depression now. I know there could be a million other reasons for this but just sharing my experience. I have nothing but respect and love for the vegans in the world and wish my health would thrive as I have seen others do.

    Ouchie Mama! I came on this web site to check out PETA to learn about animal cruelty. Maybe change my diet and where I buy things to possibly make a difference in how animals are treated by the marketingfood companies. Because seriously and shamefully I’m totally ignorant! But dang I get here and all I read is hate attacks mean and more hate. I don’t care for Madona but even more so I’m really taken back by the verbally violent comments in all the posts. I’m not sure if it’s PETA’s mode of operation this is the first page google took me to so I haven’t read anything else or simply various individual’s right to speak freely but either way it’s kind of a turn off. I admire the passion and energy people have for the various flags they waive but I don’t recall a time that I’ve ever been converted to something through hate. Anyway what do I know? Not much really so don’t go all hate on me.

    I mean really why does anyone still care about her? She’s gross and past her prime.

  • scruffy says:

    why does she need to eat meat she already looks like a leathery old carcase

  • Valerie says:

    I’ve always hated her and I couldn’t pin point as to exactly why…now it’s all clear…GO VEGAN!

  • Antony says:

    ….and one of her best friends is Stella McCartney. Go on Stella EDUCATE her!!!!!

  • Tina says:

  • Sher says:

    I hope madonna doesn’t have a pet..

  • nicole licklider says:

    madonna in my opinion has ALWAYS been a piece of trash…the “sex” book she released made me want to vomit…none of her poses in the photos were soft none looked natural…it was embarassing…she tries so very hard…i can’t understand how she was ever allowed to author childrens books…seriously??? like a virgin and goodnight moon i don’t know the name of any of her books…sorry to use a classic… sounds like a wonderful way to entertain the children!!! if you want to give them nightmares right??? ugh…she makes me ill…it’s like she screams “HEY!!! LOOK AT ME!!!” doesn’t she have an accent now??? come on…get real…if being vegan was a super awesome way to “be cool” she would do it…wait it is isn’t it??? so what is she waiting for??? haha…well i think it’s cool…

    Shes a hunter as well hunts birds. Shes vulgar.

  • Alicia says:

    DONE with the material girl.

  • jeannette marriott says:

    Anyone who who wears fur is sick.Madonnatrys to make people think that she is a kind and compassionate person. WHO IS SHE KIDDING? Maybe she should visit one of these places and see what pain and suffering is inflicted to the animals she wears so proudly

  • AAG says:

    madonna is so wrong in so many ways…ugh! I agree with Morrissey! Go vegan it is a moral imperative.

  • Debbie says:

    I don’t know how she got so much money. I don’t know anyone who ever ran out and bought a Madonna CD.

  • Aurea Abrantes says:

    We would thought that someone who has access to so much information wouldn’t be such an ignorant rascal. I am getting rid off all madonna’s CDs and she is now a NONO in my house. Get a life Madonna!

  • Jackie says:

    Someone should tell Madge that Hummus is very popular in middle eastern countries.

  • Bluebell says:

    She just likes to create controversy at any cost. She recently had her daughter recreate her ‘Like a Virgin’ pose bearing in mind she is only 12 so it’s hardly surprising that she has no qualms about exploiting animals too.

  • Brien Comerford says:

    Morrissey once said that “Madonna has no earthly value.” She eats meat made from hell.

  • Amie says:

    abou time I use to love Madonna. She is all about herself and her love everyone..well that includes animals! Sure she eats pork too while no one is looking.

  • Edward says:

    Madonna is the textbook definition of “arm flab.”

  • Rev. Meg Schramm says:

    I hope Madonna and her celebrity hangerson read that email and take it’s message to heart. I also hope she and her friends understand that simply practicing Kaballah does not mean you are Jewish. You are only Jewish if you are born to a Jewish mother. If your father is jewish but your mother is not that makes you a half Jew race but not Jewish religion. Both of Madonna’s parents as I remember are Catholic. Those are not my regulations but the regulations of the State of Israel and the Head Rabbis.

  • Leila says:

    She wants to show the world she has compassion for children but how can she have compassion without having empathy for all living beings. Madonna just never comes through as being sincere no matter how hard she tries.

    Lets do the same with Madonna she is so stupid en disgusting.
