Massive BBQ planned outside Vegan’s house after she complains about meat smell
A vegan woman sued her meat-eating neighbours for cooking meat. Now there is a massive BBQ planned right outside her house.
According to Australia’s Nine News, Cilla Carden took the case against her next-door neighbours to the Supreme Court of Western Australia towards the end of 2018.
Hollywood star Pamela Anderson says Justin Trudeau should serve prisoners “vegan meals” to save money.
Anderson, a former Playboy playmate, has asked the Prime Minister to take meat and milk off prison menus. This can, according to her, can help the planet, the health of federal inmates, and save taxpayers some cash.
According to Kitchener Today, she expressed her sentiments in a letter written as part of her work with PETA, the animal rights group.
She believes prisons should serve beans, rice, lentils, pasta, vegetables and fruits, citing that they are “at a fraction of the cost of meats and cheeses.”
She believes the Canada Food Guide should add more plant-based proteins.
Four years ago, she went to an Arizona jail to serve vegetarian meals to around 8,000 inmates. It is estimated that the prison saved between $100,000 to $273,000.
Hungry Jack’s is the latest to board the woke train and create plant-based burgers to appeal to a vegan consumer base. However, things aren’t going nearly as well as they had hoped.
While the ‘Rebel Burger’ is 100 percent plant-based, there is still a big problem: the burger doesn’t have its own meat-free grill.
“It’s 100% plant-based, and flame-grilled on the same grill our regular whopper is cooked on,” Hungry Jack’s proclaimed on Facebook, after receiving pushback. “If you’d like a vegan option not cooked on the grill, our Vegan Cheeseburger is delicious.”
Forthrightness is generally a good marker of an honest business and a great company. Unfortunately for Hungry Jack’s, the admission that the plant-based burgers came anywhere near meat was a tactical error.
It appears the only point of contention, the only source of the vegans’ dissatisfaction, is that Hungry Jack’s doesn’t use a vegan-only grill to cook its plant-based burger. This means that some animal products could conceivably be cooked onto the surface of the Rebel Burger.
Having learned their vegan sandwiches have possibly been contaminated with pesky meat, several vegan Facebook users were quick to express their outrage.
“Not enthused to find out your “Plant-based” (Read: Marketing to vegans and vegetarians) Rebel Whopper Burger is cooked on the same boiler that is also used to cook beef products. A little misleading don’t you think?” asked one Facebook user.
“I think I speak for a large majority of customers who are purchasing the new burger when I say that it is very disheartening and confusing as to why HJ’s would go through the efforts of introducing a plant-based burger when it’s cooked with the regular meat, as well as the fact that many vegans/vegetarians would be ordering this not knowing that it is prepared alongside real meat products,” wrote another in a lengthy Facebook post. “Can you please shed some light as to why this is the case because I can’t wrap my head around this at all!”
“It’s a shame you cook it with meat patties,” came another incensed customer. “Surely you can get a separate grill as majority of plant-based eaters are vegan.”
“Not sure why’d you go to effort to make a plant-based burger available on the menu to then cut-out vegans as largest market of plant-based consumer,” wrote another Facebook user.
Hungry Jack’s chief marketing officer Scott Baird says the vegan option was pitched at their whopper consumer base and that the company strived to make a vegan option that tasted as close to the non-vegan burger as possible.
But it appears that isn’t good enough—the company should have thought of vegan-only grills.
Vegan Australia director Greg McFarlane says that he cannot certify the plant-based burger as a vegan option due to the cross-contamination issue but hopes the company will one day learn the error of their ways and solve the problem.
As of this article’s writing, a Change.org petition has received 257 signatures of its 500-signature goal to ask Hungry Jack’s to not mix the plant-based patties with the meat ones.
“We love that big corporations are getting on board the plant-based train but why make something that’s perfect for the vegan/vegetarian market and then exclude them?” writes the petitioner.
“In 2019 vegans don’t just want a vegetable patty. We had those in the 1990’s, the technology is there to make these amazing substitutes to give that classic Whopper taste, that’s what we want, just minus the beef juice!”
A 37-year-old vegan Instagram influencer with over 900,000 followers has been arrested after “Detectives found a video on social media of the suspect performing an act of bestiality,” according to Shirley Miller of the Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff’s Office
Originally born Hansel Marion DeBartolo III, Sexy Vegan, who had his name legally changed and had it tattooed across his forehead, has been charged with one count of sexual assault on an animal and posting the video on social media.
Vegan’s original claim to fame came after his bizarre appearance on the Dr. Phil Show, where he advocated killing animals for meat should be made illegal. He was eventually kicked off the show after moonwalking and “for using excessive profanity,” according to his website, and trying to moonwalk across the stage.
Vegan also posted his views, which are often made as graphic as possible, to his Instagram and blog, accompanied with a picture of himself posed with his pit bull.
Readers should be warned that going through his Instagram account may be disturbing, as Vegan feels compelled to post videos of himself which border on amateur pornography.
Following his arrest in September, two dogs, including the pit bull he made the video with, were removed by animal control, Miller said.
Vegan has also claimed that he will be running for president, though he’s yet to fill out any paperwork, according to the Sun UK.
Vegan’s original court date was set for October 7, and a second court date has been set for November 5 for a pretrial. He faces one year in prison if convicted.
Four Albertan activists who joined a sit-in protest at a turkey farm were charged by the RCMP for trespassing on a southern Alberta property.
Dozens of protester swarmed a farm near Fort Macleod at the beginning og Sept., with some activists standing outside a turkey coop, while others locked themselves inside.
When police arrived the protesters agreed to peacefully leave the private property after their demands were met: media be allowed to film the facility, five turkeys be given to a sanctuary and no criminal charges be laid.
“We want farmers and the food inspection agency to start doing investigations, to start exposing the reality of what’s going on in Canadian farms,” one protestor said to CTV News.
Farm owner Mark Tschetter told CTV, “These turkeys have fresh water… They can walk outside for fresh air, and they have fresh feed every day.”
Calgarian Claire Buchanan, 28, Edmontonian Mawell Ming Mah, 46, Kennadi Rae Herbert, 24, of Pincher Creek and a Calgarian girl, 16, were each charged with one count of break and enter to commit mischief.
