American singer, actor, and filmmaker Barbra Streisand has qualified industrial agriculture as ‘unnecessarily cruel’. The Funny Girl star made this comment to her 700.000 thousand Twitter followers.
Is Mrs. Streisand vegan?
She wrote: “Industrial agriculture is not only unnecessarily cruel but it also contributes a good deal to climate change. “Plant-based and lab replicated meat holds are a great promise.”
Despite what looks like a pro-vegan Tweet, Streisand has never confirmed or talked about her eating habits or whether she follows a vegan diet or not.
As a matter of fact, back in 2018, Streisand received enormous critic from vegan charity PETA when she revealed she had cloned her pet dog, Samantha, twice.
Before her dog named Samantha died, Mrs, Streisand paid for cells to be extracted from her to clone and create two new puppies.
PETA president Ingrid Newkirk criticized Mrs. Streisand by saying that most people want their pets to live forever, but cloning is not a good idea.
Cloning creates a new and different animal who share only the physical characteristics of the original but not their personalities, or the essence since they can’t be replicated.
Mrs. Newkirk people should consider adopting a dog from animal shelters and that cloning contributes to that situation of animal abandonment.
