Moby has not only been a vegan for more than 30 years but he is also a fierce animal rights activist. This is most obviously portrayed by some of his recent tattoos; one is VEGAN FOR LIFE on the side of his neck, another is ANIMAL RIGHTS in large font on both arms and finally there is a faint VX on the side of his face.
In a recent Instagram post Moby explains his tattoos to the public:
“Oh, and I’ve been asked about the VX by my eye; V is for vegan, X is for straight edge. Straight edge because I simply can’t be a good activist if i’m lying in bed sick & hungover until 5pm every day..and of course vegan because i care about animals, human health, climate change, rainforest deforestation, workers rights, water use, famine, and all of the other horrifying things that are the result of using animals for food.”
Moby’s latest song is a dangerously catchy protest tune featuring on vocals none other than D.H. Peligro from Dead Kennedys. All proceeds from the single go to animal rights organisations. Checking out Moby’s Instagram page is a fascinating look into his activism and as for the video itself you can watch that banging new song below.
