Celebrities Are Thrilled That The Golden Globes Are Going Vegan

Smart

By Shel Silverstein

My dad gave me one dollar bill
'Cause I'm his smartest son,
And I swapped it for two shiny quarters
'Cause two is more than one!


And then I took the quarters
And traded them to Lou
For three dimes -- I guess he didn't know
That three is more than two!


Just then, along came old blind Bates
And just 'cause he can't see
He gave me four nickels for my three dimes,
And four is more than three!

And then I took the nickels to Hiram Coombs
Down at the seed-feed store,
And the fool gave me five pennies for them,
And five is more than four!


And then I went and showed my dad,
And he got red in the cheeks
And closed his eyes and shook his head --
Too proud of me to speak!

The Hollywood Foreign Press Association decided to serve a 100% plant-based meal at the 77th Gold Globes and its receiving applause from celebrities. Leonardo DiCaprio went on Twitter to show his support by retweeting the news and writing, “Thank you HFPA.” Bless Leonardo DiCaprio.

 

 

 

Fellow actor and climate activist Mark Ruffalo also tweeted the decision. “Our industry leads by example,” he wrote. “Vegetarian food is delicious and healthy and reduces green house gasses about as much as driving electric cars. The HFPA should be commended for this and all the other awards shows should follow suit.”

 

 

And that’s not all. Other celebrities applauded HFPA’s menu switch. Nathalie Emmanuel from Game of Thrones’ retweeted the news with an enthusiastic “errrrr YES!”
