Norman Reedus, who plays Daryl Dixon on The Walking Dead, is speaking out against companies who still perform cosmetics testing on defenseless animals.

Reedus, along with Cruelty Free International, is encouraging cosmetics users to call for an end to the testing of those products on animals.


Norman Reedus ban animal testing

“Scores of countries around the world are beating the US to become cruelty-free by banning cosmetics tests on animals. Nobody wants rabbits or guinea-pigs to suffer for our vanity, least of all the animals. Let’s stop their suffering right here, right now. Join me in supporting the Cruelty Free International call to Congress and the FDA to bring an end to animal testing for cosmetics in the US,” he said in a statement. h/t anonhq

Reedus joins other celebs who have joined the cause, including British comedian Ricky Gervais, Paul McCartney, Mayim Bialik and Game of Thrones star Peter Dinklage.
