There is one thing Courtney Stodden won’t do -- eat meat!
“Growing up I’ve always had so much love for animals. I wasn’t fond of eating meat, anything with a face, because I just felt like it was an awful thing to do,” she says while holding her dog Bizarre and showing off her ample cleavage in a dress with a plunging neckline.
“Just recently I switched to a vegetarian,” the 17-year-old said about her new lifestyle choice. “I had my first Thanksgiving with being a vegetarian. No turkey. I had tofu, a vegan dish, I did not miss turkey!”
“I’m so glad I can say that. I never want to eat a hamburger!”
She says her reasons for not eating meat are moral ones.
“Why enjoy one meal when you’re killing a life,” Courtney said the video of the animals being slaughtered horrified her.
“It broke my heart, I was crying for about an hour. They have a painful death. We need to be a voice for them. To help save lives that are being slaughter. The best way to save animals is to not eat them. Go vegetarian!”
Taking a break from parading around in her bikini, Courtney gave two reasons why being a vegetarian is the right thing to do.
“You feel better within yourself. You’re not only saving animals but you’re actually helping the environment.”
