NJPW star Zack Sabre Jr. is featured in a brand new advertisement for PETA, where the former New Japan Cup winner discusses the benefits of becoming a full vegan, something ZSJ transitioned to after watching the documentary Forks Over Knives.
I just felt so much more energized,” he says. “Just eating plants, … whole foods, you know, full of water, minerals, vitamins … you just feel good.” He also notes that “there’s no reason to be wearing clothes that have come at the expense of tortured animals,” mentioning that his jacket, shin guards, and shoes are all vegan.
Check PETA’s full press release, including the commercial spot with ZSJ, below.
London — Wearing his vegan leather jacket while taking a big bite out of a crisp carrot, British heavyweight wrestling champion Zack Sabre Jr. appears in a new PETA U.K. ad that proclaims, “Vegan Strong. Powered by Plants.”
PETA—whose motto reads, in part, that “animals are not ours to eat or wear”—opposes speciesism, which is a human-supremacist worldview. Compared to meat-eaters, vegans are less prone to suffering from heart disease, strokes, diabetes, cancer, obesity, and numerous other health problems. Each person who goes vegan spares the lives of nearly 200 animals every year. PETA’s free vegan starter kit is available here.
Sabre joins a long list of athletes—including Thiago Alves, David Haye, Abel Trujillo, Austin Aries, Tito Ortiz, and Mac Danzig—who’ve teamed up with PETA or its affiliates to promote compassion for animals.
