Politicize all the things!!!
PETA never misses an opportunity to spread their propaganda! They have chosen golfer Andrew Johnston as their latest target, whose nickname “Beef” has sent the animal rights group into a tizzy.
They want him to change his nickname to Tofu. Yes….TOFU. They even asked him to become a Vegan.
Andrew “Beef” Johnston explains his nickname.
“Like many others, we’ve been enthusiastically following your career, and we thought we’d send you a gift of delicious vegan steaks and burgers in the hope that you’ll consider adopting a kinder, healthier vegan lifestyle, which would pave the way for a new nickname: Andrew ‘Tofu’ Johnston.”
“Your new nickname would also raise awareness of the urgent need to move towards a cruelty-free lifestyle to offset the worst effects of climate change. According to the United Nations, animal agriculture is “one of the top two or three most significant contributors to the most serious environmental problems, at every scale from local to global.”
I used to be a vegetarian and I think tofu has a bad reputation (it tastes like whatever you cook it with), but come on. Johnston’s nickname isn’t even derived from the delicious food product.
His hair caused the nickname. His friends called him “Beefhead” and the name “Beef” stuck.
He kindly turned down PETA.
However, Beef has always embraced his nickname. His Twitter handle is @BeefGolf and received sponsorship from Arby’s. He also owns a new wedge that lists the cuts of beef.
(These are repeats, but apropos to the subject above!)
… And now, in closing:
