Rob Zombie says veganism is about ‘fighting the establishment’ – Vegan Food and Living

Metal musician Rob Zombie has spoken to GQ magazine about why hes been vegan for almost a decade, and how veganism is fighting the establishment.

The rockstar has criticised the evil meat and dairy industries for brainwashing society. He uses the example of dairy giant Dannon being a sponsor of the pink ribbon walks and compares it to Marlboro sponsoring the lung society.

This is because dairy has been found to be a cause of breast cancer making the collaboration highly ironic. It is similar to the industry promoting dairy for strong bones yet countries with the lowest rates of osteoporosis are those which consume the least amount of dairy.

As Rob puts it, Most people are, like, I dont wanna think about it! I know you dont wanna think about it. Its horrible. But I cant live my life not wanting to think about something. You gotta stop and think about things. Because youre alive.

Rob also told GQ about his rescue goats at his farm. A few years ago, Rob rescued three goats who needed a home and since then hes been working with PETA to save more.

Sometimes theyre just like giant dogs that are a little more dangerous cause they have horns. You wanna pick them up and hug them, but you dont wanna get impaled either.

At this point, we only have six. We like to get one or two at a time so they can acclimate. Its like when you get a new cat and the other cats are, like, Well, whats this cat all about? You wanna have the harmony amongst them.

Usually, theyre coming from someplace awful. Theyre skittish or nervous or afraid.

While green juices might be typically associated with young white female vegans, Rob is making them manly. He admits that he loves juicing, and has particular green drinks he likes to make.

And the rocker hasnt given in to the meat is manly narrative that is so commonly played, avoiding mock meats and opting for healthy changes instead. When you get good vegetables that are prepared right, theyre super delicious, he added.

However, he doesnt condemn mock meats, crediting them as transitional as they aid the process of upheaving your diet to a more sustainable one. As Rob says, ease into it, friend!

Robs passion for veganism is something we greatly admire, and we love that he is promoting veganism to a different audience than the traditional stereotype.

On that note, do you think we are doing enough to promote diversity in mainstream veganism?
