PETA is very proud of Russell Simmons this year! They have named him person of the year, after Simmons has devoted himself to a yogic principal ‘ahimsa’. He has been very outspoken when it comes to being and advocate of peace and respect for all living things, no matter the gender, religions, race or species.
“The horrible abuse of animals is the worst karmic disaster in the history of human kind. The work that PETA does to combat this catastrophe is amazing.
I’m truly humbled to be chosen as this year’s Person of the Year, but the praise should go to the hundreds of thousands of volunteers that are on the ground doing the work. I accept this honor on their behalf.”
