Aquaman star Jason Momoa received a basket full of fake meat from PETA after he announced not cutting bacon from his diet. The actor has recently adopted a wild pig which he called Manapua. He posted a photo of his new pet on his Instagram account.
PETA sent the actor a basket that included fake bacon, plant-based jerky, sham ham, and pigless pork rinds. They also gave him a cute pig plushie with the message, “Pigs are friends, not food.”
Aquaman Star Jason Momoa Proves Himself An Animal Lover
Momoa, a self-confessed animal lover, said that he could not help but take home the wild boar. He met the animal on the set of his new Netflix show, Slumberland. The actor has been considering what name to give his pet; in the end, he narrowed down the list to two choices: Lau Lau and Manapua. Both names are popular Hawaiian pork dishes.
The actor said on his Instagram: “This is why I can’t work with animals. I want to bring them home. Wild and feral like his pops.” He later confirmed choosing Manapua as the pet’s name. Aside from his pet pig, Momoa also shares several pets with his ex-wife Lisa Bonet. They have a donkey, a ball python, a dog, and two half-wolves.

Leave him be he's native Hawaiian. With any islander culture pork is steeped in it and anyway peta are a bunch of hypocritical liars we're here to save animals! in reality their shelters abuse animals constantly and they euthanize thousands that otherwise could have been adopted.

I'd bet 91% of those obnoxious PETA cult members would eat pig for a taste of Jason Momoa's pork

Ingrid Newkirk of PETA confidently believes that Jason Momoa will switch to veganism in the end and might even become an advocate of the said movement.
