Vegan musician Billie Eilish and two-time Olympic Gold medallist Chris Paul have joined forces as executive producers of vegan movie “They’re Trying to Kill Us.” Scroll down as we reveal how the “Bad Guy” singer makes good use of being in the spotlight to advocate for veganism!
Billie Eilish is an animal lover. She went vegan in defence of animal rights. The singer-songwriter was raised as a vegetarian and found the transition into veganism easy, encouraging her fans to follow a plant based diet.
“I love animals and I just think there's no point in creating something out of an animal when the animal is already there. Leave animals alone."
Filmmaker John Lewis who is popularly known as “Bad Ass Vegan” travels across the country for this documentary interviewing doctors, politicians, professional athletes, activists, and famous hip-hop artists trying to find out about food injustice issues. The big question is why people of color suffer much higher rates of chronic disease caused by their diets.
Lewis announced the addition to the team of executive producers Eilish and Paul, feeling incredibly honored by the artists’ support. He described them as amazing people who have been fighting for social justice and promoting veganism.
The 34 year old professional basketball star has been a fervent advocate for veganism and the 19 years-old five-time Grammy Award winner has always been extremely vocal up standing up for her beliefs. Both decided to sign up as executive producers to back the movie and bring these important topics to wider public attention.
Eilish promotes her values by adopting a food-conscious lifestyle and as a famous artist uses her power and global influence to radically help shift the world towards a plant based diet.
Billie is also helping her mother Maggie Baird on her Support + Feed initiative. The singer’s family are feeding first responders, seniors centers and economically vulnerable people during the coronavirus pandemic. The initiative is helping plant-based restaurants to stay afloat during the global crisis.
The “My Future” singer said that switching to a vegan diet is fundamental because it will help to minimize climate change, reduce healthcare costs, prevent chronic disease, end starvation and promote compassion for the animals in our planet.
