Billie Eilish, an advocate for animals
Billie Eilish is well-known for her support of animal rights movements and her fondness for animals.
She doesn’t eat any animal products and has spoken out against the cosmetic and fashion industries’ use of mink fur.
She wore a gown by Oscar de la Renta to the 2021 Met Gala, where she successfully campaigned for the brand to end its use of fur.
“I find it shocking that wearing fur isn’t completely outlawed at this point in 2021,” Eilish said at the time, according to PETA. “I’m honored to have been a catalyst and to have been heard on this matter. I urge all designers to do the same.” She was honored by PETA in 2019.
During the 2020 covid-19 quarantine, she nurtured pit bulls and eventually adopted one.
