She hasn’t held her title for even a month and already controversy is happening.
No, Kellie Pickler hasn’t been found in revealing photographs of her chomping on hamburgers after winning PETA’s Sexiest Vegetarian Contest. But there are some that wish she would.
Amanda Nolz at Beef magazine recently blogged on the Beef Daily blog (Seriously, we’re not kidding. We know you’ll want to bookmark that in your browser as well as subscribe to the Beef Daily e-newsletter.) that Kellie was an example of a country music star who had turned away from country values.
Just like evil Carrie Underwood who donated funds from her American Idol elimination song to the Humane Society, Kellie is ruining everything country. Well, shame on her!
“Well, it’s no secret that I’m not a fan of Carrie Underwood, a vocal vegetarian who actively teams up with the Humane Society of the United States (HSUS), and you’ve heard me rant and rave about the “Oprah Effect,” where anything Oprah says, the world listens to as fact. It’s unfortunate that others like Kellie Pickler are now following suit. Time and time again, these celebrities stand up and against America’s food producers, heightening an already troubling outlook consumers have on farmers and ranchers.”
“Even though we don’t have fame, fortune and our faces on the cover of magazines, farmers and ranchers have the capability to feed 144 people each year. We have the determination and drive to produce a safe and wholesome product to feed the world. Agriculturalists are truly people to look up to, and today, I challenge you to step out of your comfort zone and tell your story. It’s time we let our voices be heard. Who’s with me?”
Uh, not us. But anyway…
It must be tough for someone from some parts of the U.S. South, farming background or living in the heart of “cattle country” to go against the grain and be veg. Kudos to them.
Are you a cattle rancher kid who went wild and became veg, much to the disappointment of your friends and family?
