Local Beef is Bad, Go Veg!
On the heels of the recent SoCal beef recall anda property being sold abut the Hollywood Sign, PETA announced an idea yesterday of buying or, at least, renting the next-door land to place 5-letters to the left of the Hollywood sign. If all becomes said and done (they wish), Hollywood's icon would read "Go Veg Hollywood."
PETA does not have the $20 million needed to purchase the property, but they "did write to the real estate company today to negotiate a deal for renting the space until they’re able to sell it."
It wouldn't be the first time the Hollywood sign's lettering has changed -- it used to read "Hollywoodland." More fun facts about the sign, like CalTech's prank, can be found here.
