Joaquin Phoenix stops by Toronto subway station to view animal-rights campaign

Joker star Joaquin Phoenix stunned Toronto subway passengers with a surprise visit that momentarily clogged a station. The movie star made the afternoon appearance just before rush hour traffic to view an underground publicity campaign promoting veganism, but did not speak to onlookers or board a train. Phoenix spent about five minutes wandering past transit riders to view black-and-white images of farmed animals. The wall murals are part of a campaign by the Colorado-based organization, Be Fair Be Vegan. Leading the tour was Anita Krajnc of the vegan advocacy group Toronto Pig Save.
