Los Angeles – Below, please find a statement from PETA Senior Vice President Lisa Lange in response to Charles Barkley’s comment that “[t]here’s no such thing as a vegetarian”:
PETA thought there was no such thing as not believing that vegetarians exist, yet here we are. We’d like to see Charles make that claim to Kyrie Irving, Damian Lillard, Jahlil Okafor, John Salley, and the many other NBA superstars who are thriving on healthy and delicious meat-free meals.
PETA’s motto reads, in part, that “animals are not ours to eat,” and more information about the existence of vegans is available here.
