Billie Eilish has today spoken out to her 26.1 Million fans on Instagram about the brutality associated with the Dairy Industry. The Vegan Singer-Songwriter shared a post from @carla.sweet.vegan regarding the largest undercover dairy investigation in history.
Generally steering clear of confronting messaging, Eilish states “i keep my mouth shut most of the time about this because i believe everyone should do eat and say whatever they want” but urges her followers to “be smarter” and make more conscious decisions.
The investigation is regarding Fair Life, a dairy company based in Indiana U.S.A, and the release of a 90-minute undercover video brought to the public by the Animal Recovery Mission (ARM). The video details severe abuse of calves at the Fair Oaks Farms, which is one of the suppliers to Fair Life. The dairy company is a subsidiary of Coca-Cola and despite the release of an apology message from Co-Founder Mike McCloskey there have been several retail outlets that have pulled their products from the shelves.
ARM mentioned that the abuse is systemic and not contained at this single farm. No doubt there is more to come from this story.
