Billie Eilish wants more people to pass the turkey on for the holidays.
The night before Thanksgiving, the 19-year-old Grammy-winner encouraged others to forego the turkey in which Eilish cradles one of the birds in a post on her Instagram story.
"Turkeys are some of the gentlest creatures in the world," the singer titled her contribution. "And 46 million of them are killed every Thanksgiving."
She added, "I know it's hard to change traditions, but keep it in mind :)."
Earlier this month, Eilish and other celebrities including Joaquin Phoenix and Ricky Gervais signed a petition asking President Joe Biden to allow this year's pardoned turkey to stay at the Farm Sanctuary.

There animals can "live their life in peace and security", says the petition.
"As we approach Christmas time - which should be a time of gratitude and goodwill - we hope that you will accept our offer to offer sanctuary and the best possible life to pardoned turkeys," said the organization in a letter to the Commander-in-Chief, 79.
Other petitioners included Phoenix's wife Rooney Mara, Natasha Lyonne, Margaret Cho, Dave Bautista, Mena Suvari, Alan Cumming, Maggie Baird and Mayim Bialik.

Just before Christmas Eilish shared her recipe for vegan and gluten-free peanut butter chocolate chip cookies with fans on Instagram.
"These cookies are completely vegan and GF and AMAZING," she captioned the video tutorial, "so the flour is literally just mixed oatmeal and they work perfectly."
The brew also contains Costco's Kirkland Signature Organic Peanut Butter, which the "Happier Than Ever" cast said was "My FAVORITE PEANUT BUTTER IN THE WORLD, so I always use this for everything."
