Dax Shepard Turns Down PETA’s Sexiest Male Vegetarian of the Year Award

Dax Shepard says he can’t accept PETA’s Sexiest Male Vegetarian of the Year Award — because he’s no longer a vegetarian.
The organization recently crowned Shepard and fiancée Kristen Bell as the 2013 male/female winners of their annual online poll, but the “Parenthood” star took to Twitter on Thursday to decline the honor.
“I’m really flattered to be named ‘Sexiest Vegetarian’ with @IMKristenBell, but sadly I can’t accept in good conscience because I eat chicken,” tweeted Shepard.
He continued, “I was vegan for a year, but that ended 6 months ago. I aspire to be more like @IMKristenBell , but I’m not there yet.”
Currently, PETA’s website — which denotes that the “winner was chosen by PETA based on several factors, including vote count” — only lists Bell as the winner, and Shepard is no longer listed in the group of eligible males.
What do you think of Shepard turning down the award?
