||I went to college for acting,
and the fact that now I'm sitting naked
||on the top of plastic horse..
Yeah, no, I never thought that.
||Now I am ready.
Now I'm ready to fight those carriage drivers.
||This is Christine Johnson.
And this is my new boyfriend, Axel.
||And we're here for PETA.
I love you. - Great laying down, baby.
||Thanks guys. Well my friend Jackie
saw the movie Blinders
||and was really affected by it.
And she is one of my best friends
||she asked me to come to New York premier
and I went, and I was blown away
||by the story and how these horses live.
or actually I should say don't live.
||This just seemed something
that was so ridiculous and outdated
||so I really can see why people
furious about it. They go from this horrible
||trotting job where they're pulling people
through the streets of Manhattan
||to this tiny jail cell in this building
on the ninth floor.
||And it's horrible. And I also didn't know
that horses need room to sleep.
I didn't know they lay down,
||I don't know why,
I just never thought of it.
||I mean, try propping me up
for 10 years and I'll tell you, it ain't pretty.
||I'd see the tourists who were considering
coming to New York.
||There is so much amazing stuff
about Manhattan, it's my favorite city
||in the world. It always will be.
And please do something else.
||Oh my god, just take a walk.
That's how I feel.
||And I hope within the next year
that there are no more carriage horses.
||Just cut it now, I'm done.
-That was great.
