Ricky Gervais is urging his fans to sign a petition to stop bullfighting in Spain.
The comedian has joined the World Society for the Protection of Animals (WSPA) in a campaign to ban the sport.
“WSPA is trying to stop needless acts of cruelty all over the world,” he said. "The Catalonian government in Spain is on the verge of voting for a ban on bullfighting. Catalonian MPs will be voting on the issue and you can do your bit to help.
“We want them to know that there are thousands of people all around the world who care which way they vote and are hoping to see them put an end to this cruel sport… Please go to the WSPA website and add your name to our petition so that together we can encourage the Catalan parliament to vote in favor of a ban.”
