Billie Eilish advocates veganism on Thanksgiving

Saving animals is all she wanted.

Billie Eilish advocated for people to refrain from eating turkeys on Thanksgiving in a post that was shared on her Instagram stories on Wednesday.

“Turkeys are some of the gentlest creatures in the world, and 46 million of them are killed every Thanksgiving,” the 19-year-old pop star and vegan activist wrote over a picture of himself with a live turkey.

“I know it’s hard to change traditions, but remember it :)”

Eilish has been following a vegan diet since she was 12 years old.

In May, she opened up to British Vogue about her decision to change her lifestyle after training in the ethics of the meat and dairy industry.

“Once you know that kind of thing and you see it, it’s really hard to go back,” Eilish said.

At the time, she said she never “wants to tell anyone what to do,” noting that she has a lot of friends who eat meat.

But the “Everything I Wanted” singer added: “I just can not go on in my life knowing what’s going on in the animal world and like doing nothing about it.”

In September, Eilish even dropped its very own vegan sneakers with Nike. Both Air Jordan designs are 100% vegan and consist of more than 20% recycled material.

“You can make cool s — t, and you do not have to be a waste,” she told Nike about her decision to make the shoes sustainable.

In addition to sharing her views on the food industry, the Grammy winner has been vocal on a number of other topics she is passionate about at public events, concerts and on social media.

In October, Eilish spoke out against Texas abortion legislation during a concert in Austin.

“When they did the s – ta law, I almost didn’t want to do the show because I wanted to punish this f-king place for allowing it to happen here,” she explained. “But then I remembered that it is you who are the victims of the f-king, and you deserve everything in the world. And we have to tell them to shut up!”
