Oprah doesn’t have to be worried about her weight, the People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) loves her just the way she is. In fact, PETA has named Oprah its “Person of the Year”.
According to the president of the Norfolk,VA-based animal rights group Ingrid E. Newkirk, the 54-year-old Oprah was singled out from the rest of Hollywood because she uses her “powerful voice to defend those without one.”
Earlier this year, Oprah dedicated an episode of her show to her late cocker spaniel, Sophie.
Winfrey is set to receive a PETA Award plaque and letter of appreciation.
