“PETA joins in mourning the passing of former American Top 40 host Casey Kasem,” Newkirk says. “From always touting the importance of going vegetarian to flying to Las Vegas at his own expense to speak out against an entertainer who beat orangutans backstage every night before his act, Kasem was proud to use his distinctive voice to support many social causes, including animal protection.”
