The following is a transcript of our incredibly popular video titled Why I'm No Longer Vegan. Presented by Vegr's Co-Founder, Gerry Warren. We have received a plethora of emails asking us to release the transcript, so here it is.
I just want everybody to know that since a few days ago, I'm no longer vegan.
I guess I'll start by saying that it's been too tough...
I went out with a friend... He ordered a steak and... it was too much for me. I love steak too much. It just looked too good. I had to clamp down into it. I was trying to do it for the animals. I really, really was. That was my intent-- to do it for the animals, right?
But I couldn't do it.
I love ice cream. I love bacon. I was just getting too much flack. People were making fun of me. It was too tough. I wasn't getting any support. I met this girl and she told me she couldn't date a vegan. I went to a restaurant... again, and they didn't have vegan options. I had to leave... and it was embarrassing.
I got tired of people talking about how freaking annoying vegans are. Or how much they impose their will on people.
I couldn't do it. I wasn't strong enough.
I mean, F%#K the animals, right?
I needed bacon. I needed steak. I needed ice cream. I needed cheese. I couldn't do it.
I couldn't stop eating these things for animals. I couldn't stop eating these things for animals. I couldn't stop eating certain foods that are animals for animals. I couldn't stop doing something that's vicious, torturous, murderous, disgusting, barbaric, outdated. I couldn't stop doing it for animals.
I couldn't do it.
F%$K the animals, right?
Let's keep on doing what we're doing. Let's keep using their hydes for jackets when it's cold. Let's keep putting them on plates with A1 sauce and french fries and mashed potatoes. Let's keep waking up on Sunday hungover and going to get them with a side of pancakes. Let's keep doing all this disgusting stuff.
I'm no longer vegan, right? Because I don't give a damn about animals.
Does that sound right to you?
I will never, ever, ever stop being vegan. I will never, ever, ever, ever, ever give up on my convictions.
I'm vegan for life... for the animals. Because I care about the animals.
I'm doing this for equality. True equality. Not just human equality. So I'll never stop. I'll never stop this fight.
It's every day.
It's who I am.
