As 2023 approaches, more and more year-end lists are being shared. The latest comes from PETA, who had a very special award for Harry Styles.
Harry has enjoyed many awards throughout his young career including Grammys, Brit Awards, MTV Video Music Awards, Juno Awards, American Music Awards, and Billboard Music Awards, should I go on? Ok, I will, British LGBT Awards, Juno Awards, Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Awards, People’s Choice Awards, and even the Hungarian Music Awards.
There’s are many more, however, the award that Harry may be most proud of is the one that The People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals organization said was this year’s “Best Viral Moment for Animals.” It was the time when Harry was pelted by chicken nuggets onstage.
PETA shared footage of the moment to their Instagram; the video shows Harry being hit by cold chicken nuggets during one of his August shows at New York City’s Madison Square Garden. Harry seemed amused by what was thrown at him, that is until the crowd told him to eat the nuggets.
Harry smiled and said, “Who threw the chicken nugget?… I don’t eat chicken, sorry.” He continued with “I don’t eat meat.” He also said he wouldn’t eat the nuggets because they were cold and he assumed “very old.”
PETA said Harry “rejecting” the nugget and revealing he doesn’t eat meat is what made the moment worthy of praise and inclusion on their year-end list. PETA said, “Each person inspired to go vegan by the superstar will save the lives of nearly 200 animals per year.”
