Okay, Drake, we see you! The Canadian rapper recently shared that he doesn’t eat meat anymore! The “God’s Plan” singer enjoys playing video games and was recently on Twitch, the largest streaming gaming platform on the web, where he battled it out for a game of Fortnite. During the gaming session, which brought in more than 600,000 views to see Drake play, he revealed he is vegetarian.
“I feel like chicken and pineapple on pizza could work, but I don’t eat meat anymore,” Drake told his gaming opponent, Ninja.
We couldn’t help but notice that Drake’s meat-free announcement comes shortly after his friend and fellow hip-hop star, Beyoncé shared that she is doing a vegan diet to prepare to headline music and arts festival, Coachella, this upcoming April.
Whatever Drake’s reasoning may be for ditching meat, we are here for it. With the immense toll the animal agriculture industry is taking on our planet, including rampant air and water pollution, land degradation, deforestation, and pushing countless species to the brink of extinction, we definitely support celebrities using their platform for good. And hey, maybe Drizzy will persuade his crew to ditch meat, too!
