If two vegans are angry at each other...is it beef?

PETA has written an open letter urging Drake to end OVO's partnership with Canada Goose, Complex reports. The letter comes just a few days after Drake revealed that he's no longer eating meat during his Fortnite chat with fellow gamer Ninja. While discussing pizza toppings, Drake said “I don’t eat meat anymore. But I enjoy pineapple on pizza though.”

Now PETA is hoping that change will affect his business as well. Following the news, they sent Drake a gift basket to welcome him into the vegetarian lifestyle, including, according to their website, "you guessed it!—passionfruit." The organization also expanded on an earlier request to Drake to end the Canada Goose partnership, which they'd made through a tweet following the release of the God's Plan video, asking him to "extend your compassion to coyotes who are painfully trapped & bludgeoned or shot to death for @CanadaGooseInc's coats."

"The company also uses painful steel traps to catch wild coyotes—who pray to make it back in one piece to their families but instead suffer and are killed in horrible ways so that their fur can go around someone’s neck," PETA wrote on their website, using the alleged animal cruelty the winter wear company has been accused of to explore new meaning in Drake's 2016 hit "One Dance."
