Lohan Quit Meat?

For those following the lifestyles of the rich and famous, it will come as no shock that the troubled starlet Lindsay Lohan continues to generate headlines in celebrity magazines.  Like a moth attracted to light, PETA has been drawn towards Lohan.  The animal rights group cleverly decided to “lend a helping hand” to her as she struggles with legal problems.  Naturally, it would only do so if it could also promote its animal rights and vegan message.

Lohan, the former child star of films like the Parent Trap and Mean Girls, has been in hot water for most of 2010.  She has been in and out of jail and most recently was ordered by a judge to return to a rehab center after failing a drug test.  However, news emerged that Lohan may be unable to pay the $50,000 tab.

This is where PETA stepped in.  In an October 27 letter to Lohan, the animal rights group offered to foot the bill for the rehab.  Of course, there was a catch.  In order to get the free rehab, Lohan would have to become a vegan.

The letter is from Michelle Cho, PETA’s “special projects manager.” In it Cho says,

“PETA will help pay your $50,000 bill for substance addiction treatment if you’ll rid yourself of one more toxic substance: meat. As you know, a crucial part of any recovery is showing charity to others. One way to do this is to be kind to animals, the Earth, and your own body. You’ll never regret it.”
