Torturing bunnies for makeup should never be OK.
We love Nellie McKay. How could we not? The girl is smart, she’s funny, and she’s a walking contradiction: The rave reviews thrown her way say that her music belongs in the smoky jazz clubs of the ’40s, but Nellie is only 29-years-old. She’s been a vegetarian since she was 8, but she hates vegetables. This tiny young woman with strawberry-blonde hair might seem pretty harmless, but she shows no remorse when attacking Columbia University officials for their abuse of primates.
When asked about the cruel animal tests that Columbia routinely performs, Nellie quickly declares that the tests are “heinous” and an “assault against humanity.” Nellie also called Columbia’s animal laboratories “torture chambers” during a protest that she led for PETA in New York.
The hot artist is so passionate about stopping the obscene cruelties that go on at Columbia University that she wrote a song about it. You can hear “Columbia is Bleeding” and see the music video right here at peta2.com.
