Los Angeles – Actor Hugh Jackman recently apologized to vegans and the “chickens of the world” for the number of birds he ate prior to starring in Wolverine, so today PETA rushed him a basket of vegan chicken with a message from some adorable chicks to help him figure out how to get fit in a humane and healthy way.

“Hugh had the good sense to apologize to chickens, and with this scrumptious basket of vegan eats, PETA hopes he’ll now turn those regrets into resolutions,” says PETA Senior Vice President Lisa Lange. “PETA promises Hugh that going vegan will balance his karmic debt and help him get into tip-top shape for Deadpool 3. A win-win!”

PETA notes that vegan eating is popular among top-performing athletes and bodybuilders, including record-breaking strongman Patrik Baboumian, past winner of the title “Strongest Man of Germany.” But more importantly, anyone who goes vegan prevents nearly 200 animals a year from enduring daily suffering and a terrifying death. Birds killed for their flesh are confined by the tens of thousands to severely crowded, filthy sheds and trucked through all weather extremes to slaughterhouses, where their throats are slit—often while they’re still conscious.

“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
