Below is a small excerpt from an interview organized by PETA:
Interviewer: Why did you decide to go vegetarian?
Serj Tankian: Touring, and its variety of edible crap. As well as the knowledge of industrial slaughterhouses. I also think it was instinctive somewhat.
Interviewer: What is your most important issue concerning animal rights?
Serj Tankian: Respect. We all have to get life from Mother Earth to survive. We need not to alter its already perfect state.
Can I love this man any more?
