Carmen Cusack, a Miami resident who runs AHIMSA, a local animal rights advocacy group with her husband, really loves tofu. So much so she wanted to proclaim it on her license plate, and requested a vanity plate saying, "ILVTOFU."
Fear not, because PETA is on the case.
"Having a vanity plate is a great way to promote things, especially in Miami when you're stuck in traffic," says Cusack's husband, Matt Waranius.
"We could inspire more people to try tofu, veggie burgers. A vegetarian diet is really one of the best ways to fight off climate change, animal cruelty, and improve your own health."
