Billie Eilish has shared an emotional Instagram post begging fans not to eat a traditional turkey dinner this Thanksgiving. 

The singer, who is vegan, shared a photo from 2020 of herself cradling one of the ‘gentle’ animals.

Her caption read: “Turkeys are some of the most gentle creatures in the world and 46million of them are killed every Thanksgiving.”

Eilish went on to add that she understands that it can be ‘hard’ for people to have to stop with a ‘tradition’ they’ve always carried out.

The singer previously opened up about how she switched to a plant-based diet with Vogue magazine.

She said: “I am vegan. I’ve been vegan for, damn, seven years.”

Eilish explained that she made the move after learning some difficult facts about the meat industry.

She continued: “Once you know that kind of thing and you see it, it’s really hard to go back. And now, even though I have lots of friends that eat dairy and meat and I don’t ever want to tell anybody what to do.

I just can’t go on in my life knowing what’s going on in the animal world and, like, not doing anything about it.”

The Los Angeles resident admitted that it wasn’t ‘hard’ switching to a vegan diet, as meat was never a ‘huge’ thing in her life anyway.

She commented: “Becoming vegan wasn’t, like, a huge deal for me because meat was never a thing in my life. 

“It wasn’t like I missed meat – it wasn’t like I had something to miss.”
