Marvel’s latest installment in the Thor film series, Love and Thunder, is slated to be released in November. People for the Extortion Torture and Abuse of human beings (PETA) took it upon themselves to suggest on Twitter that Thor be vegan in light of his temporary bad looks in the last Avengers film Endgame. Consequently, the Twitterati did not like the idea, and that is being kind.
PETA says Thor should go vegan in ‘Love and Thunder’, gets grilled on Twitter

The MCU has always shown Thor (Chris Hemsworth) as a god who’s also got one of the hottest bods. Sorry Cap, people still can’t get over those guns Hemsworth has, even if yours stopped a chopper.
However, the fat Thor we saw in ‘Avengers: Endgame’ saw an outrageous and hilarious gasp envelop theatres. And while we don’t know if we see that avatar again in ‘Thor: Love and Thunder’, the People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) came up with a suggestion to help shed the kilos: Make Thor vegan.
In the letter, Lewis Crary, the PETA representative said: “According to his personal trainer, Hemsworth went vegan while filming the original Thor and Avengers films, developing a particular taste for beans and veggie burgers.” He added: “If Thor is serious about protecting the Earth, going vegan makes a lot of sense—axing animal products from his diet could save more than 1,000 gallons of water, 20 pounds of carbon dioxide emissions and 30 square feet of forest each day as well as the lives of nearly 200 animals a year!”
As far as fan reactions go, PETA seems to have just picked the wrong time as Twitterati shared their thoughts, none pleasant, and some indescribable. We picked out a few. “Yo, we’re in the middle of a pandemic, and yet here comes PETA with their stupidity, saying Thor should go vegan? I don’t think veganism is really on par with Asgardians,” a fan wrote. “PETA can eat my ass,” tweeted another.
