Russell Simmons, hip-hop mogul and author of “The Happy Vegan,” has been vegan for almost 20 years. His Argyleculture vegan fashion brand helped make him PETA’s Person of  the Year in 2011. “The horrible abuse of animals is the worst karmic disaster in the history of humankind,” said Simmons. “The work that PETA does to combat this catastrophe is amazing. I’m truly humbled to be chosen as this year’s Person of the Year, but the praise should go to the hundreds of thousands of volunteers that are on the ground doing the work. I accept this honor on their behalf.”
