Los Angeles – In honor of National Splurge Day (June 18), comedian and influencer GloZell Green stars in a new mukbang-style video for PETA in which she and actor Kate Duffy sample a smorgasbord of vegan food.

“[I]t’s delicious,” GloZell proclaims. “And no animals had to be hurt. Hallelujah.”

The complete menu included BBQ “chicken wings,” seaweed caviar, “crab” cakes, and an entire Thanksgiving meal—from a Celebration Roast to a homemade pumpkin “cheesecake.” GloZell’s favorites include the tacos with Beyond Meat ground “beef” and shredded “cheese.” “I hope I’m not being punked. Because it … really does taste like cheese,” she says. “I’m telling you, vegan food has come a long way …. I’ve been missing out.”

PETA offers a free vegan starter kit with tips and tricks for finding vegan versions of classic dishes, from egg-free scrambles to dairy-free ice cream and beyond. In addition to sparing animals daily suffering and a terrifying death in today’s meat, egg, and dairy industries, people who go vegan reduce their risk of suffering from heart disease, obesity, diabetes, and cancer.

GloZell is part of a long list of celebrities—including Grace Helbig, Bella Thorne, Amanda Cerny, and Gregg Sulkin—who’ve teamed up with PETA to promote kindness to animals.

PETA—whose motto reads, in part, that “animals are not ours to eat”—opposes speciesism, which is a human-supremacist worldview. For more information, please visit

“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
