The late Betty White also did her fair share of fighting for animals. Even if the girls had some tension between them at times, they definitely shared a love for their furry and feathered friends.
In fact, both Betty and Bea often raised funds and donated to animal rights organizations. Despite the on set disputes, it sounded like those two made a great team.
But She Advocated for Civil Rights
Of course, in her professional life, she was seen as extremely difficult to deal with, but that doesn’t mean that she was a bad person. Bea devoted her free time to advocating for the rights of groups like women, the homeless, and the LGBTQ community.
Bea even had it written into her will that a huge portion of the money from her home and savings should be sent to those that she advocated for.
She Advocated for Animals Too
The actress also devoted time to assisting PETA in advocating for the rights of animals. We guess it’s fair to say that Bea may not have been sunshine and unicorns to her coworkers, but she certainly seemed to have a huge heart.
We sure are glad to know that Bea did so much in her lifetime.
