Jillian Michaels Latest Celeb to Join NYC Horse-Drawn-Carriage Debate

Jillian Michaels became the latest celebrity voice to be added to the NYC horse-drawn-carriage debate.
The 40-year old trainer for the TV show "Biggest Loser" joined with Mayor Bill de Blasio, Alec Baldwin, Pink, and other celebrities over whether or not the city should impose a ban on the horse-drawn-carriages.


Demonstrators gathered on city hall to protest the inhumane treatment of animals -- and cheer on Mayor de Blasio in his fight to see it happen.  Michaels was one of the protestors who joined the PETA crowd to voice her opinion about the subject.


“They do not belong in congested city traffic on the streets of Manhattan,” she said at the City Hall protest.


Michaels currently owns three horses that were rescued, and said she is willing to adopt another horse for her California ranch.


Animal rights activists have been pursuing a ban on what they deem cruelty to animals inside the city for years.  Pink has been vocal on the forefront of the issue in trying to get a petition signed off to force lawmakers to act upon it according to webpronews .


“Every time I see a horse-drawn carriage in a concrete jungle, I point and yell ‘animal cruelty’ at the top of my lungs to try to make the driver and occupants as uncomfortable as possible,” says Pink. “It honestly hurts my heart when I think of what those horses must be feeling, as far as anxiety and fear, and how unnatural and wrong it is for these animals to have blinders on, trotting up and down on concrete, while taxis blare and people scream. It’s absolutely unnatural and ignorant of us to continue this outdated tradition. What about this is romantic?”

I have a knee-jerk dislike of Jillian Michaels. I realized this as I was looking through our archives, where it seems like Bedhead sort of likes her and CB thinks Jillian has a few good ideas. I think my knee-jerk dislike of Jillian is that I dislike almost all professional trainers. I hate being bossed around, especially about my body or my workouts, and for the most part, Jillian just seems mean. Maybe “mean” works on some people who need to be motivated, but for me, I’m not go ...
