James Bond - Sir Roger Moore Praises Foie Gras Campaigner Over Name Change

James Bond star Sir Roger Moore has praised an animal rights campaigner for legally changing her name in a fight against controversial foie gras pate.
An employee at People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (Peta), Abi Izzard, has joined calls for bosses at London department store Fortnum & Mason to stop stocking the delicacy.
She has now officially changed her name to StopFortnumAndMasonFoieGrasCruelty.com, because it "sparks a conversation about the cruelty of foie gras and Fortnum & Mason's complicity in the abuse" every time someone reads her name.
And Sir Roger, who is an active campaigner against foie gras, has applauded the Peta worker for the move, saying, "Many people know me as James Bond or 007, but I never went so far as officially changing my name from Roger Moore! I hope the young lady now known as StopFortnumAndMasonFoieGrasCruelty.com royally shames this store."
