Thank You Ricky Gervais for Spreading the Word

Oct 29, 2016 | Views: 489

Animal cruelty is an ongoing issue which deeply bothers most animal lovers around the world. It is a growing phenomena but most of us prefer not to pay attention to it because it is painful to see yet involves too much effort to change.

Animal lovers can be categorized into two main groups – the first type loves animals but does not get involved in creating awareness against animal cruelty. The other type loves animals AND passionately champions activities that promote awareness against animal cruelty. The latter is what we should do.

I am very happy to see more celebrities using their power of influence to speak up against animal cruelty. I hope this article will inspire more people to practice kindness, to do more for animals as they have no voice of their own, and to transform their lives for the better.

Ricky Gervais Has a Message for People Who Still Wear Fur

As animal lovers, there are many issues that boil our blood when it comes to animal welfare. We can’t believe that there are places around the world that still use bear bile as a form of medicine. We simply can’t wrap our heads around why anyone would prize an ivory trinket over the life of an elephant. And of course, we get enraged when we think of the millions of animals that are killed every single day simply to satiate our appetite for meat and cheese.

When people are passionate about an issue, they usually want to spread as much information and awareness about the topic as possible. They want people to know about the matter from all sorts of different angles and make a knowledgeable opinion about it. After all, someone would be more likely to cut down their meat consumption, for instance, if they knew that not only is meat bad for animals but for the environment and human health, as well, right? Well, as much as we agree with this informed approach, there are alternate ways to raise awareness, nowadays. Some people, especially celebrities, are able to make an impact with just a simple statement. They know that millions of people follow their Twitter or Facebook page, and they use that elevated platform to get to the point quickly and tell people matter-of-factly “you should be caring about this,” or “please don’t do that.”

Ricky Gervais is a big fan of this method of spreading awareness. In fact, just recently he shared a succinct Facebook status that made it pretty simple for people to know where he stands when it comes to wearing real fur.

This method works on a number of levels. It gets to the message quickly and directly: “please don’t buy fur.” It doesn’t overwhelm viewers with a slew of information but instead sticks to the most hard-hitting fact: an animal is kept in a cage for their entire life simply for their fur. And it lets people know how silly it is that someone is buying that jacket just so they can “show off,” when it’s plain to see that this is not something worth bragging about. The fact that you can read the status in a Ricky Gervais accent helps get the message across as well.

By now, most people know how terribly abusive the fur industry is. Animals who are unfortunate enough to end up in this vicious industry are often stolen from the wild, kept in unbearably small cages, and then killed by cruel methods, including gassing and even anal electrocution. And the worst part is, it takes multiple lives to make one garment. Specifically, it takes about 40 rabbits, 70 minks, and up to 100 chinchillas, respectively, to make a fur coat.

While many high-end brands have halted their use of animal fur and skins in response to the public’s disapproval of the practice, there are still companies out there who seem to have no problem continuing with the abuse. Hopefully, as even more awareness spreads and more prominent figures, like Ricky Gervais, stand up in opposition, people will realize that the lives of living, breathing animals are truly not equivalent to the feeling of looking fancy in a fur coat. Thanks for spreading the word, Ricky Gervais!

    Fame is very good when it is used to do something beneficial. Celebrities are very influential, they have many followers and fans who look up to them. What the celebrities use, eat or believe in will become a trend among their followers, the followers want to do the same.

    Ricky Gervais is a British celebrity who has a lot of followers on his Twitter account. He is an animal lover and he always tweets about animal cruelty to raise awareness. What he says will make an impact for sure. Most importantly, he walks the talk.

    He is very against animal cruelty because he doesn’t think animals should suffer because of our vanity. Instead of using his fame to make more money, he uses his fame to do something good to the society, this is very admirable. If more celebrities can be like him, it will be easier and quicker for a movement to be successful.

    what’s your view on wearing leather?

  3. Wan Wai Meng on Dec 19, 2016 at 9:08 pm

    Ricky Gervais is a great English funny man, and I am thankful he has the courage to say it as it is and not worry about any consequences.

  4. Lin Mun on Nov 24, 2016 at 12:20 pm

    Everyone has different influential level. It is especially helpful when celebrities help to create awareness on animal cruelty as they have the ability to influence their follower to do the same.

    Thank you Ricky for your compassionate action.

  5. CindyH on Nov 13, 2016 at 9:05 pm

    Indeed, it is better to be one that loves animals and go the extra mile to promote awareness against animal cruelty. Many people tend to agree that the fur trade is an unnecessary cruelty and mostly for vanity reasons.

    In fact, if the fur trade was entirely eradicated, it is unlikely to have any significant impact to the world at large, save for a handful of those who make their livelihood snatching animals from the wild, stuffing them in unbearably small, likely very unhygienic cages, and then killing them cruelly with inhumane methods. Yet, undeniably there are still those who are very much attached to the elitist appeal of the garments.

    Thus, with more celebrity like Ricky Gervais bluntly painting the real picture and raising awareness, it will definitely serve to dilute the appeal of fur. After all, in the 21st century, celebrities are seen as global icons and even a symbol of power and status with their endorsements or views on things carrying quite significant influence and weight. Hopefully, many more will be inspired to get involved in raising awareness.

    Thank you, Rinpoche, for this sharing.

  6. Alice Tay on Nov 9, 2016 at 11:21 pm

    There is a possibility when people who hurt animals may eventually direct violence toward humans. As such, we should support and encourage people to practice kindness towards animals and speak out for the animals.

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this nice article and hope more people will get inspired and practice kindness to the animals.

  7. Edwin Tan on Nov 8, 2016 at 1:49 am

    Thank you Ricky Gervais.
    Thank you Rinpoche.

    Celebrity who use their influence to promote positive messages are worth applauding for.

    Ricky Gervais instead of showing up at red carpet events with fur to “show-off” his celeb status chooses to create awareness of animal abuse for the fashion industry by spreading it on his social media.

    When more influential personnel talks about such issues with genuine intention, the rest will listen.

    Kudos to Ricky.

      Animal Cruelty is getting the attention it deserves, especially from celebrities who can bring stronger awareness to bigger mass. It is painstakingly sad to see how human had created so much pain and suffering onto animals, therefore we rejoice that some of us are taking steps to rectify and try to undo this wrong. Celebrities have better credibility to serve this end, we hope more of them will voice up for the helpless animals. Thank you Ricky Gervais.

  9. Vivian Ong on Nov 5, 2016 at 2:33 am

    Thank you Rinpoche for this article. This article brings awareness to everyone that even celebrity voice out their thoughts about animal cruelty. Hope more and more celebrities will speak up like Ricky Gervais to stop and prevent animal.cruelty.

    With folded palms,
    Vivian

    Dear Mr. Gervais

    I appreciate that you are bringing awareness about animal suffering just to make a trinket or in the name of fashion. We need more people like you that promote animal welfare and to say stop to all forms of animal cruelty.

    People have to understand that animals have feeling and can feel pain like all of us and they are weaker and less intelligent than us. Therefore, we should protect them.

    Valentina

  11. Samfoonheei on Nov 3, 2016 at 9:09 pm

    Good news more celebrity are out using their power of influence to speak up about animal cruelty.Ricky Gervais is one example ,he posted on his FB to encourage people not to buy fur.Animals are killed by cruel methods to get the fur for garments mainly for the rich and famous celebrities. Hopefully more prominent figures and celebrities will stop buying fur as garment and help to spread the word,to stop the animals cruelty .To be kind and loving to all sentient beings.
    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this.

  12. Lucy Yap on Nov 3, 2016 at 11:42 am

    There are celebrities who do things for the attention,but there are celebrities who take their money and fame and use it for a good cause and are completely committed to the causes that are important to them. Whether it’s bringing awareness to millions of fans or opening a foundation to collect funds for a good cause, they are more than just famous – they are animal activists.
    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this article on Ricky Gervais, who speaks out for animal rights, animal testing and encourages animal adoption. May more people be aware of this message and end animal cruelty and abuse.

  13. Wylfred Ng on Nov 2, 2016 at 12:50 pm

    谢谢仁波切的分享, 也谢谢Ricky Gervais 为这些受到伤害的动物们在社交媒体上发声。

    现今社会还是很多人为了自己的口腹之欲、虚荣感等等而让很多动物受苦。 一些食物比如鹅肝、熊掌、鱼翅等等都是用非常残忍的方法而得到的食物。 单单只是几口食物、刺激我们味蕾几分钟的时间是多少动物一生的伤害, 值得吗??

    皮草也是一样。 到底是多少动物的生命和皮毛的牺牲让我们在舞会中成为会场的焦点? 让自己的虚荣感建立在无数动物的痛苦上是怎样都不可被原谅的。

    感谢 Ricky Gervais 利用他自己的知名度和影响力在社交媒体上为这些动物发声。 让更多人知道皮草的背后是如何的残忍。

    谢谢

  14. Sarah Yap on Nov 1, 2016 at 10:44 pm

    Great sharing. I love it when celebrities use their fame for a good cause, it tells so much about their personality that’s not just engrossed into themselves but have a capability of thinking more. To me that matters, because how can we just admire someone we only see on the screen without knowing who they really are. When they engage in causes such as these, whether it is caring for animals, orphans etc, it gives us an idea of who they really are. Very nice. Hope to see more celebrities use their fame to inspire and make a difference to the world.

  15. Shelly tai on Nov 1, 2016 at 1:37 pm

    Fur trading is one of the trade that I must said very inhuman, unfortunately despite all these awareness that go around there is still people wearing a this so call expensive fur coat this is something I do not understand especially the rich and famous this is really got to do with their ego mind that anything that is expensive will make me look good i think beside all this awareness that going around the world us good that the local gorverment need to impose a law to find all this illegal hunting on all these innocent animals.

  16. Pavara Lam on Oct 31, 2016 at 10:16 pm

    One form of animal cruelty is the fur trade… The fur trade is possibly one of the worse form of animal cruelty since it involves a large number of different animals. What makes it worse is the fact that the rest of the animal parts that are not useful are thrown into the Rivers or seas. So in turn we are harming ourselves indirectly due to the polluted waterways.

    I really hope that people will stop buying and demanding for any type of animal related products to save the planet and the respective animals.

  17. William Chua on Oct 31, 2016 at 7:34 pm

    A celebrity uses their influence to get the message across. What Ricky is doing is commendable because he is using his fame to do more than to self indulge. He is fighting for animals who can’t speak for themselves and to let the pubic now that it is not ok for animals to be abused and killed for their fur, bile, tusks, skin etc.
    We can support him by just retweeting his tweet.

    There are many alternatives now to replace fur and skin/leather which are made of plant materials. There are leather made from pineapple, fake fur which have the same effect and vitamins/drugs which can replace bear biles. In fact, modern medicine which uses organic and natural ingredients can be far more nutritious.. We are no longer in the stone age where people wear fur to keep them warm.

    It needs a lot of education and people to make a change. We just need to keep on until the war is won, for the animals.

    It is always heard warming to see celebrities use their fame for good cause. In this case of Ricky, he uses his name to put across a message to stop animal cruelty.

    It is really hard to imagine how miserable is the life of the animal when they are locked up in a cage for their entire life, just so that their skin will be stripped of their body to be used as fur for human being. If we don’t want to be in that situation, then we should not make the animal suffer in that way.

    Thank you Ricky for making a strong message!

  20. Justin Cheah on Oct 31, 2016 at 12:39 am

    I am glad more and more celebrity came out to speak up about animal cruelty. When celebrities speak, the impact tend to be there and it reaches out to more people. Thank you Ricky Gervais for highlighting the plight of the poor animals. It is inhumane for people to torture and harm animals out of greed. In this day of world, we have the technology to make synthetic leather/fur for our clothes and don’t have to skin animal alive.

  21. Echeah on Oct 31, 2016 at 12:26 am

    I fully respect and admire celebrities who use their fame and influence in a positive way, giving voice to those that are abused and harmed. They speak up for others instead of being indifferent.

    Thank you Ricky Gervais for being passionate about stopping animal abuse and speaking up.

    I would like also to mention another famous celebrity who is also a strong advocate and activist for animal welfare. He campaigns for the protection of all animals against unnecessary, cruel and degrading treatment; with a particular emphasis on preventing hunting of foxes and the culling of badgers. He is also a staunch supporter of various animal welfare groups and constantly tweets about animal welfare advocacy. He is none other than Dr. Brian May (he’s also an astro-physicist!), lead guitar of my most favourite rock band, Queen.

    What is the point of being famous for the sake of being famous? What in the end does one accomplish? When people who have attained fame and fortune begin to give back to society by way of voice, time and resources then only can we say they are truly accomplished.

  22. Ron Wong on Oct 30, 2016 at 11:44 pm

    Millions of animals are brutally killed around world each year just to satisfy our fancy, may it be food, fashion, sports, entertainment & etc. Unfortunately, while some just choose to ignore, many are unaware of what actually happen in the process & how much suffering the animals have gone through to meet our demand before they are finally killed. Arming with this knowledge & using his popularity & huge fans base, celebrity like Ricky Gervais is surely making a great impact on issue like this by creating awareness & spreading message to the world not to partake in animal cruelty for just a piece of coat. In fact, everyone is responsible to do it because all of us are guilty of being the consumer. This brutally & cruelty towards animals is an ongoing issue that can only be ended when the demand stop.

  23. Han on Oct 30, 2016 at 11:38 pm

    When celebrities talk, people or fans listen and thus raising the awareness.
    celebrities taking a stand against animal abuse or exploitation can have a massive impact and it’s a win – win situation.
    Thank you for sharing this blog post that promotes kindness and compassion towards animals.

  24. Sarah on Oct 30, 2016 at 9:19 pm

    The best way to stop cruelty to animals is to stop eating their meat and buying products that are made from animal parts. We should also check the sources of products that we buy to make sure animal cruelty has not been not involved in their production.

  25. Uncle Eddie on Oct 30, 2016 at 8:15 pm

    Animal cruelty, an on-going issue and one of the growing phenomena in the World; deeply bothers, if not hurting “animal-lovers” in their painful endeavours to see and to hear! Hearfelt gratefulness to Ricky Gervais for spreading the “word to the World”, so as to aspire more powerful celebrities and true lovers to use their hearfelt influences to speak-up against such cruelties against our “fellow-beings!” This lovely world should have more “compassionate, with oceandeep feelings and true love” people like Ricky Gravais to live in! Thank you hearthily once again for your having such a wonderful heart of compassion and care, for highlighting and spreading the word for the poor animals and their sufferings to the whole wide world, Ricky Gravais!

  26. Yee Mun (KISG) on Oct 30, 2016 at 5:06 pm

    The only way to stop fur and skin industry and animal related industry is to stop demanding on its by-product.

    Celebrities play an influencer role. They are a double edged sword, can bring awareness and cut down on the demand or create more demand for the products. 1 word from a celebrities is more powerful than any lay person. At least his die hard fans might follow his action and his pledge.

    Hope that more celebrities will stand out to promote awareness on cruelty of animal related industry and put a stop to the industry.

  27. Joy Kam on Oct 30, 2016 at 1:15 am

    I really admire celebrities who really use their fame, name and voice to voice out for those who need it especially the animals who are voiceless. These celebrities are usually the ones we see have some kind of substance. They last longer, and they really use their good fortune to spread more good in this world. So thank you to Ricky Gervais for being blunt and honest, because what he said on social media was spot on.

    I hope to see more and more celebrities talk about animals rights because they do play a big part in our society due to the media, in shaping our next generation, and these days we are seeing kids as killers, hunters, murderers of puppies… it is truly becoming more and more degenerate as we become more and more advanced in the materials world.

  28. Vinnie Tan on Oct 29, 2016 at 11:51 pm

    Since young, I loved fur. But as I started to grow older and know how these products are being produced, it shows that there is no need to be having things like that at all. By wearing fur, we are skinning another sentient being’s skin in order to make it our accessory.

    When as was younger I did believe that fur products are only the skin of the dead animals. However, thinking further it does not make sense at all. As it is impossible for so many animals to die on a daily basis in order to make the fashion wear that matches our demands. Yes, the skin are taken from the dead animals, but these animals were killed for their skin. And it is not that after they are dead from natural causes that we take their skin.

    I remember the first video that I watched about the fur industry was the video about the fur industry in China. It was then I saw that these animals were only hit to be unconscious before they were being skinned. Even after some of them were skinned, they still had feelings, were alive and could see them blink as they just lie with the other flayed bodies. It was then I knew the kind of harm that we as humans induce on animals in order to be “happy”. Harming so many others in the process of it.

    Synthetic fur is something that is nice and pleasing as well. There can be items that feels like the real thing, yet we do not harm any animals in the process of it. Wearing the skin of animals do not show any form of superiority. It only shows how barbarian we are. Going back to the cave men times when we already have so much advancements in our society. It will be really dumb to do so.

    I really hope that one day, farm houses like this will cease business. To do so, we have to stop purchasing these items. We may think that alone we do not make any difference. Yet, when we stop and educate others as well. They too will stop. From there, with more people stopping their urges of fur. The fur industry will close down.

  29. Pastor Han Nee on Oct 29, 2016 at 9:18 pm

    If we truly care , we will speak up against animal cruelty.There is too much senseless abuse of animals and senseless cruelty towards them. Animals have no voice of their own. So we have to speak up for them.

    Here, in this blogpost , Ricky Gervais speaks up against animal cruelty in no uncertain terms. He also creates and spreads awareness of this very effectively.

    Yes it makes our blood boil just to think that there are people around who insist on having bear bile as their medicine. There are others, who can insanely buy and adorn themselves with trinkets made from ivory for which an elephant has to be killed!.There are of course people who insist on eating meat every day , for which countless animals have to be killed daily, not forgetting crazy people who fancy taking as food animals killed alive for them.

    Here ,as an example of how to use social media to spread awareness about animal cruelty ,Ricky has chosen to speak up against the senseless torture and killing of animals for their fur. To be precise, he says, it takes “about 40 rabbits, 70 minks, and up to 100 chinchillas, respectively, to make a fur coat”. Ricky believes in sending a succinct message. Choosing the right and necessary words are important, he says. Too long a message makes it ineffective. People are overwhelmed by too much information in one message. Keep your message to the most hard-hitting fact.

    But the bottomline is still the fact that Ricky is a prominent person of celebrity status. Hence,he has so many likes and shares. It is great to know, that he truly cares and has a passion to speak up against animal cruelty, and has a powerful voice for it.

    Nonetheless, more and more voices speaking up against animal cruelty and abuse, more and more people being made to see that eating of meat and animal organs or parts,and wearing of animal parts are unnecessary, will surely lead to a steady reduction in animal cruelty and abuse.

The Unknown

The Known and unknown are both feared,
Known is being comfortable and stagnant,
The unknown may be growth and opportunities,
One shall never know if one fears the unknown more than the known.
Who says the unknown would be worse than the known?
But then again, the unknown is sometimes worse than the known. In the end nothing is known unless we endeavour,
So go pursue all the way with the unknown,
because all unknown with familiarity becomes the known.

Hunting is a horrible \'sport\' because it is not necessary and unfair. Killing animals is vicious and inhuman. Hurting animals does not help us, our karma, our mind and it does not help the animals. Killing animals serves no benefit and it stunts our spiritual growth. Tsem Rinpoche

His Holiness Sharpa Choje Rinpoche Jetsun Lobsang Nyima of Gaden Shartse Monastery. He was a supreme master of both Sutra and Tantra. He served as abbot of both Gaden Shartse Monastery as well as Gyuto Tantric college. After serving as abbot of Gyuto Tantric college he entered into a few long term (3 year, 3 month and 3 day) Vajra Yogini retreats in the forest. He completed that long retreat twice and was going to enter it again till he was asked to be abbot of Gaden Shartse Monastery by H.H. the Dalai Lama. He was a great practitioner of Vajra Yogini\'s tantra as well as Dorje Shugden. He was a scholar of the highest renown and he was highly sought after for teachings. He was very devoted to Dorje Shugden throughout his whole life as a pure monk. I was fortunate enough to have him as one of my teachers. Humbly, Tsem Rinpoche

    What the meat industry figured out is that you don't need healthy animals to make a profit.
    Sick animals are more profitable... farms calculate how close to death they can keep animals without killing them. That's the business model. How quickly they can be made to grow, how tightly they can be packed, how much or how little can they eat, how sick they can get without dying... We live in a world in which it's conventional to treat an animal like a block of wood. ~ Jonathan Safran Foer

Big thanks to the cheerful team from GBG Malaysia! With busy lives, it can be really hard to find time to volunteer. However, the benefits of volunteering are enormous to you, your family, and your community. The right match can help you to reduce stress, find friends, reach out to the community, learn new skills, and even advance your career. Giving to others can also help protect your mental and physical health. - Vivian @ Kechara Soup Kitchen
