- Joker saved the day!
Within less than 48 hours of winning his first Oscar, Joaquin Phoenix saved a cow and her baby calf from slaughter. The 45-year-old’s award season helped the actor to advocate for social change on issues close to his heart, above all, animal rights.
2. The action took further actions…
After SAGA, he went straight to the LA Slaughterhouse to comfort pigs. Similarly soon after the Oscars, Phoenix saves a cow and her calf from being slaughtered. A new video from Farm Sanctuary, shows Phoenix visiting the Pico Rivera slaughterhouse in LA.
3. Phoenix’s reply to Di Maria
“I don’t need really any science to see with my own eyes and hear how an animal responds to pain. You’re the only one that you know of that has the process that you have, so that means a majority of them don’t have that.” Furthermore, to this debate, he asks her to let him take the cow and her calf. Di Maria agreed to this. The actor even carried the newborn calf in his arms with her mum.
4. The actor further adds through an activist group!
“I never thought I’d find friendship in a slaughterhouse. But meeting Anthony and opening my heart to his. I realize we might have more in common than we do differences. Without his act of kindness, Liberty and her baby calf, Indigo, would have met a terrible demise. Although we will continue to fight for the liberation of all animals who suffer in these oppressive systems. We must take pause to acknowledge and celebrate the victories, and the people who helped achieve them. Shaun Monson, Amy Jean Davis, and the entire LA Animal Save community have taken their pain of bearing witness and turned it into effective, diplomatic advocacy for the voiceless.”
“we watch baby Indigo grow up with her mom Liberty at Farm Sanctuary, that we’ll always remember that friendships can emerge in the most unexpected places; and no matter our differences, kindness, and compassion should rule everything around us.”
