Ricky GervaisWorld famous comedian Ricky Gervais recently spoke out encouraging citizens to vote for a ban on bullfighting.

The Catalonian public in Spain has put a large effort into demonstrating against the cruelty of the sport, and Gervais is taking time off from cracking wise to help their cause. He partnered with the World Society for the Protection of Animals (WSPA) to rally support for the upcoming Parliament vote on banning bullfighting.

The vote was prompted by a petition from 180,000 Catalan citizens; if it passes, bulls will be given equal protection as other animals under the law. Gervais appears on a video asking viewers to sign a letter supporting the Catalan citizens’ call to action. Check it out below.
