So, Paul McCartney is a vegetarian, not a vegan. In fact, he hasn’t eaten meat since 1975 when as the story goes he saw lambs running around a field whilst eating a lamb meal with his wife, Lina McCartney.
Why is Paul McCartney vegan?
One of the biggest reasons why the McCartney’s became vegetarians was compassion. They wanted better for themselves, the animals, but also the planet. After Linda died in 1998, Paul vowed to continue her work in animal activism, but that’s extended to taking care of the planet now.
