Morrissey’s Beef at Coachella

Published by PETA.

This past weekend, the Southern California desert town of Indio was steamier than usual. PETA’s lettuce ladies made a special appearance at the three-day Coachella Music Festival—where our beloved Morrissey was performing—and wooed broiling-hot fans to the joy of soy by giving away free Tofutti Cuties. The ladies report that the icy-cold, nondairy treats were a smash hit and even turned skeptics into fans.

And what about Morrissey, you ask? Well, he proved once again that he will never let animals down. In front of a crowd of thousands, Mr. M. halted his own performance to let the meat vendors inside the venue know their presence was not welcome, shouting: “I smell burning flesh, and I hope to God it’s human. This smell of burning animals is making me sick.”

Check out some photos of our ladies at the festival:

They couldn’t even make it through festival gates before being stopped.

Everyone wanted pictures with the Lettuce Ladies.

Hmm, anyone else think a Morrissey and Lettuce Ladies world tour is in order?

“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
