The vegan comedian star Russell Brand has gone vegan for the second time since his first attempt back in 2011. He appeared on the latest episode of the Joe Rogan Experience podcast, who once taunted vegans as ‘f***ing dipsh*ts’.
“You’re a very different type of person to me, there are things in this world, in these polemical times, you and I would be supposed to, I would say, take adversarial stances on,” Brand states.
“I’m vegan now, you love hunting. But my personal philosophy is – my morality and my spirituality [are] for me. It’s not something I go around inflicting on other people and telling them how they should behave.
“I know enough now to know people are different, people have different experiences and I don’t let those things get in the way of how I evaluate other people.”
The comedian revealed his return to veganism last month, tweeting: “I’ve been baking like a maniac ever since. And I’m vegan now (again).”
Russell Brand along with his now ex-wife Katy Perry watched the documentary Forks Over Knives, which inspired him to go vegan.
Brand’s changes regarding the vegan lifestyle have been the cause of confusion among fans who asked the star to stick to one lifestyle so they could ‘put to bed some conflicting opinions on your vegan status’.
