As Ed Sheeran crosses the U.S. on his Mathematics Tour, he’s been popping in at local restaurants to surprise customers and serve up grub alongside the staff—and PETA says it’s a perfect opportunity to promote kinder eating. In a letter sent today to the singer, the group asks Sheeran to put one of Los Angeles’ many popular vegan spots at center stage—perhaps Hart House, Donut Friend, or Mr. Charlie’s—when he visits the city later this month.

“We’re just thinking out loud, but why not ‘work’ at a vegan restaurant when you come to Los Angeles this month?” writes PETA Senior Vice President Lisa Lange. “Many of L.A.’s beautiful people are vegan, and the City of Angels is the site of many historic advances for animal rights. By sharing your spotlight with these compassionate eateries, you could encourage your fans to dive into kinder, more sustainable eating.”
PETA—whose motto reads, in part, that “animals are not ours to eat”—opposes speciesism, a human-supremacist worldview and offers a free vegan starter kit on its website. For more information, please visit PETA.org, listen to The PETA Podcast, or follow the group on X (formerly Twitter), Facebook, or Instagram.
PETA’s letter to Sheeran follows.
September 14, 2023
Greetings from PETA! We enjoyed watching you wear various aprons while promoting your new album. We’re just thinking out loud, but why not “work” at a vegan restaurant when you come to Los Angeles this September?
Many of L.A.’s beautiful people are vegan, and the City of Angels is the site of many historic advances for animal rights. We’ve heard you’re a friend to cats, Ed, so this idea purrfectly aligns with your compassionate heart.
Every single meal makes a difference. By sharing your spotlight on these compassionate eateries, you could encourage your fans to dive into kinder, more sustainable eating!
You could work at vegan restaurants like Hart House. Or perhaps you’d like to visit Donut Friend and indulge in some photogenic treats. And many vegans love the cuisine at Mr. Charlie’s, making it a perfect place to visit.
So what do you think? Please feel free to contact us. We’d be delighted to help make this possibility a harmonious reality.
Senior Vice President of Communications
