Ellen DeGeneres has been named Person of the Year by PETA.

The star shares her title with Project Runway’s Tim Gunn for her work championing vegan lifestyles through raising public awareness.

“Tim Gunn and Ellen DeGeneres show us that one person really can make a difference in the world by rejecting cruel deeds in favor of compassionate acts,” said PETA President Ingrid E. Newkirk. “Their message that animals must be treated kindly and respectfully has reached scores of people, and many of them have changed their buying habits, all because Gunn and DeGeneres spoke up for the voiceless.”

DeGeneres responded with a Tweet that read: “I’m honoured PETA named me ‘Person of The Year’. I thank them for protecting animals every single day. Amazing.”
