My Letter to Honey Boo Boo’s Mama

Dear Honey Boo Boo’s Mama,

It’s my understanding you recently served hot dogs at Honey Boo Boo’s birthday party. That’s a real boo-boo. Eating hot dogs promotes cruelty, exploitation, and violence that animals suffer at factory farms and in slaughterhouses. Hot dogs may also lead to various diseases including diabetes, heart disease, high blood pressure, and obesity. If your family craves hot dogs, please consider eating Smart Dogs, a more healthful and humane choice.

You also stated you like to “sit on the couch and vegetate your ass.” Eating more plant-based foods may give you more energy to play with Chubbs, Chickadee, and Honey Boo Boo Child. Apparently, you also told your daughter if she “farts 12-15 times a day, she can lose a little weight.” Although I have not tried that diet, the best way to maintain a healthy weight is to eat more vegetables, fruits, and other whole foods. Please consider ordering a free vegetarian starter kit for ideas on how to prepare these foods. You may also want to give your children water instead of Mountain Dew and Red Bull.

While I can sympathize with your statement that “no one can be proper and etiquettely [sic] all the time,” you can still make a big difference in your life, the lives of your children, and the welfare of animals by choosing a humane lifestyle that prioritizes compassion over killing. Please consider trying my easy guide to improve your health, save animals, and preserve our environment called 30 Ways in 30 Days: A Checklist for Compassionate Living.

Thank you for keeping an open-mind. I wish you and your family success, health, and happiness.

Regards,

Andrew Kirschner

    Andrew….get a life and leave others alone. Last time I looked this was still a free country. And if you don’t agree with June, it’s simple…don’t watch!

    • Hi Renee,

      Thank you for sharing your thoughts.

      It is not a free country for billions of animals who are needlessly confined, abused, and slaughtered on factory farms. Please consider watching this video and decide if you still think volunteering to stand-up for abused animals is a waste of time.

        I don’t believe in abusing animals just to abuse them. Killing them for food quickly is humane. Do you realize that if we didn’t keep the animal population under control., we would be overrun with them? When there are too many, there’s not enough food for them. Eventually, they starve and die a slow and very painful death. Seems less humane to do it your way. Where I live, there were a lot of deer, more than the hunters needed. But food was scarce and the deer were starving to death. They just lay there, barely breathing and their bones sticking out from their skin. Killing them quickly is easier and there is no pain involved. I can’t live on tofu and sprouts. I like tofu, etc but not as a complete diet.

      • Hi Stacy,

        I’m afraid you’re misinformed. 300 million Americans aren’t eating 100 billion wild deer in the United States. They’re eating 100 billion chickens, cows, pigs, and turkeys from factory farms. Those are not wild animals running through the streets of New York. Those animals are bred for consumption on factory farms. There would be no animal overpopulation problem because they would never be born. It’s a myth and common misconception among meat-eaters. We’re not doing animals a favor by confining, abusing, and slaughtering them. Please watch this 60 second video and tell me if you think the animals should be grateful to us:

        I don’t eat tofu and sprouts. That’s also a myth used by meat-eaters to paint vegetarians as having nothing good to eat to justify continued meat-eating. Please consider ordering a free vegetarian starter kit so you can learn more about delicious cruelty-free options.
