Angela Simmons – co-founder of Pastry, designer and star of MTV’s Run’s House – unveiled a daring new advertisement for PETA at the Paramount Hotel in Manhatten last night.

“I really want people to know what happens to animals … Animals have feelings, and I think it’s important we take action,” Angela explains. Angela believes that God’s creatures deserve love and compassion and wants to raise awareness about the billions of cows, pigs, chickens, and other animals suffering on factory farms.

Animals raised for food are crammed by the thousands into filthy sheds and confined to wire cages, gestation crates, or barren dirt lots without the opportunity to ever feel grass beneath their feet or sunshine on their backs. When they have grown large enough, animals on factory farms are crowded onto trucks and transported many miles through all weather extremes to the slaughterhouse, where they have their throats slit, are scalded alive, or have their bodies hacked apart “piece by piece,” as one meat inspector described.

About her vegetarian diet, Angela says, “I’m happy with it. I feel lighter—it’s a good feeling.” In addition to combating the cruelty of factory farming, adopting a vegetarian diet is the best thing that you can do for your health. Meat consumption has been linked to our nation’s biggest ailments, including heart disease, obesity, diabetes, strokes, and cancer. The American Dietetic Association states that vegetarian or vegan diets “are healthful, nutritionally adequate, and may provide health benefits in the prevention and treatment of certain diseases.”

Angela was joined by stars such as Russell Simmons, Mary J. Blige, NY Ink’s Ami James, BET’s Rocsi Diaz and Samantha Ronson at the unveiling event.
