The first thing I did yesterday morning when I woke up with a good 10 minutes to spare was grab my phone and casually scroll my Facebook feed. Nothing particularly stood out except for one story that caught my eye- ‘Vegan man murders his family’. Without delay, I clicked on the post and read the shocking details. The mainstream article kept referencing him being vegan as an element of somewhat relevance. I don’t know about you guys but, aside from the unequivocal fact that the man was a monster and grade 1 psychopath, the fact that they used the word ‘vegan’ as a tool or a hook to sell the article really bothered me. So, I thought I’d address this.
It has always been clear that the mainstream media is no friend to the vegan movement, but taking this opportunity to associate the man being ostensibly vegan with his monstrous acts is no less than a cheap shot. Really, mainstream media? I can now see why the term ‘Fake News’ came about so casually in reference to your dishonesty. Plain and simple- the man is and was not vegan. You know it. We know it. Hell, HE knows it!
Let’s break this down in the simplest and quickest of ways. Vegans are against killing ALL living animals. I mean, we don’t partake in anything that has to do with harming anyone. Veganism is compassion. That man was clearly not compassionate. True vegans commit to their lifestyles and face years of nutritional compromise, ridicule from normies and social scarcity because, deep in their hearts, the thought of harming ANYTHING with feelings disgusts them. This was clearly not the case with this guy. The man killed. He killed his beautiful family with his bare hands without remorse, without a milligram of compassion and that clearly illuminated the fact that he never cared about the animals from the very beginning.
Yes, he successfully deceived the world into believing he was vegan by falsely labeling himself as one but that doesn’t mean jack. I could label myself as the prince of Bora Bora; that does not mean it’s true. We judge people based on their actions. That man’s actions clearly signify that he is not a vegan and the world should know this.
Let’s send this message to our mainstream minded friends so that people don’t ever think that vegans could ever commit such atrocious, villainous and nauseating acts.
May his family rest in peace.
