Terminally Ill TV Legend Sam Simon Will Donate Much Of His Fortune To Animal Rights!!!

| Filed under: TV NewsSad SadPETACharityCancerAnimal Rights


Sam Simon, the co-creator of The Simpsons and also the show runner of the iconic show Taxi, was diagnosed with cancer a while ago, and doctors have given him only a few more months to live.

Fortunately, Simon has an amazing attitude about the whole scary ordeal, and he plans on using his massive fortune to improve the lives of animals all over the world!

And he's already started!

Here's what he said:

"When I was sick, I got to summon people to my hospital room. Ingrid and I got this fun idea. I started to buy these zoos and circuses in December. I just wanted to have some days where I get to see animals walk in grass for the first time. Through PETA, we rescue animals in roadside zoos and circuses. They are some of the most abused animals in the country. Freeing those animals, that's something I'm not sure I would do if it weren't for the cancer."

Simon also briefly mentioned what changes he wants to happen in this world for animals.

Here's what he said:

"I want medical experiments on animals stopped. They don't do anything, and they don't work. Veganism is an answer for almost every problem facing the world in terms of hunger and climate change. It helps people's health. Meat is the biggest greenhouse gas producer. There's also the cruelty and suffering aspect. When people do meatless Mondays, and when people adopt instead of buying a dog, that's a PETA victory."

We are so sad to know this man will eventually succumb to cancer and depart from our lives, but hopefully he can stick around for a little while and make some BIG changes!

In some ways - he already has!!!
