Los Angeles, July 23 IANS | 2 months ago

Actor Kevin Spacey has been offered a donation of USD 6,000 to his theatre company by animal rights campaigners if he switches meat for vegetarian food at an upcoming fundraising barbecue.


The 54-year-old is giving his fans an opportunity to pay and have barbecued ribs with him on the set of his drama series "House of Cards", with proceeds going to the Geffen Playhouse here and London's The Old Vic Theatre Company, where Spacey works as artistic director.

People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) have promised to make a donation if Spacey goes vegetarian for the event, reports contactmusic.com.

"We believe that you care about animal welfare and about the environment, so in light of all the information available today about cruelty in slaughter houses and the detrimental effect of greenhouse gasses produced by animal-based agriculture,

"...PETA is respectfully asking that the prize dinner feature delicious 'Fib Ribs' or Field Roast vegan offerings instead of ribs so that the theatre will not benefit at the expense of other vital social interests," said the PETA representatives in a letter to the star.
