Jermaine Dupri Hosting Vegan Thanksgiving Dinner For Those In Need

While PETA is working to get Lil Kim on their side when it comes to her fur coats, even sending her a faux fur jacket in exchange for her real get-ups, the company is using one of their proud supporters, Jermaine Dupri, as an advocate for them following American Thanksgiving.

Jermaine is set to host a Vegan Thanksgiving dinner for those in need in Atlanta, in the city's Westview neighborhood, Billboard reports. The plant-based meal will include the classics such as mashed potatoes, stuffing, pumpkin pie and a vegan turkey with mushroom gravy. The publication details how Tofurkey roasts will also be given away during the event. 

"I've been vegan for over a decade," Jermaine said in a statement, "and for me, there's nothing better for feeling your best and knowing you're helping the planet and animals. The holidays are about the spirit of giving, and PETA and I want to give people in Atlanta a Thanksgiving meal that's healthy, humane and delicious." Dynasty star Elaine Hendrix will join Jermaine Saturday, November 23rd at the West Hunter Street Baptist Church at 3:30 PM. 

In other vegan news, earlier in the summer, Billie Eilish pleaded with her fans to stop eating animal byproducts. "If you can watch the videos that I just posted and not give a f*ck that its YOU contributing by LITERALLY EATING the creatures that are being fully tortured just for your pleasure. I feel sorry for you," she wrote
