The Roughest Celebrity Video I've Ever Seen. Even These Stars Look Completely Shocked.

The looks on these celebrities’ faces as they learn about the fringe dog-meat industry in Thailand says it all. They’re Ricky Gervais — who’s infamously hard to shock — Dame Judi Dench, and Penelope Wilton, Laura Carmichael, and Peter Egan from "Downton Abbey."Trigger warning: There are verbal descriptions and some depictions of animal cruelty in this video. Thankfully, most of it isn’t shown.

The conditions these dogs endure are just heartbreaking. Even before the worst stuff happens, they're often packed in crates so tightly they can't move.


We can only hope they don't know what awaits them. But looking at the hopeless, pleading looks on their faces, I'm afraid they get the idea.

This unimaginable level of cruelty needs to stop. And it needs to stop now.

So how can you even help?

First and foremost, you can go to the site mentioned in the video. That's what I did.

And of course, please share this with anyone who you think will care so we can shed light on what has been a dark, cruel secret for far, far too long.

One of the ways to tell if you're in a healthy relationship is whether you and your partner are free to talk about other people you find attractive. For many couples, bringing up such a sensitive topic can cause some major jealousy.

Of course, there's a healthy way to approach such a potentially dangerous topic.

Telling your partner you find someone else attractive shouldn't be about making them feel jealous. It's probably also best that if you're attracted to a coworker, friend, or their sibling, that you keep it to yourself.

"I love being a nurse because I have the honor of connecting with my patients during some of their best and some of their worst days and making a difference in their lives is among the most rewarding things that I can do in my own life" - Tenesia Richards, RN

From ushering new life into the world to holding the hand of a patient as they take their last breath, nurses are everyday heroes that deserve our respect and appreciation.

To give back to this community that is always giving so selflessly to others, CeraVe® put out a call to nurses to share their stories for a chance to be featured in Heroes Behind the Masks, a digital content series shining a light on nurses who go above and beyond to provide safe and quality care to patients and their communities.

First up: Tenesia Richards, a labor and delivery nurse working in New York City who, in addition to her regular job, started a community outreach program in a homeless shelter that houses expectant mothers for up to one year postpartum.

Upon learning at a conference that black mothers in the U.S. die at three to four times the rate of white mothers, one of the widest of all racial disparities in women's health, Richards decided to take further action to help her community. She, along with a handful of fellow nurses, volunteered to provide antepartum, childbirth and postpartum education to the women living at the shelter. Additionally, they looked for other ways to boost the spirits of the residents, like throwing baby showers and bringing in guest speakers. When COVID-19 hit and in-person gatherings were no longer possible, Richards and her team found creative workarounds and created holiday care packages for the mothers instead.
