Man Eats KFC In The Middle Of A Vegan Protest

A man who was spotted interrupting a vegan demonstration to eat some KFC chicken has gotten himself embroiled in a lot of controversy. Vegans and die-hard mean-eaters are at odds, and while both sides have valid points, the vegan position is likely more self-righteous than the mean-eater one.

A man who was spotted interrupting a vegan demonstration to eat some KFC chicken has gotten himself embroiled in a lot of controversy.
Vegans and die-hard mean-eaters are at odds, and while both sides have valid points, the vegan position is likely more self-righteous than the mean-eater one.
The ensuing demonstrations are always interesting to watch, with protestors lamenting the harsh and environmentally destructive practices of cattle raising while meat-eaters respond with the classic "yeah but it's nice."
As I said, there are valid points on both sides.
Recently, the vegan activist organization Anonymous for the Voiceless was conducting a protest outside Sydney's Town Hall when they had an unexpected visitor: a man with his chicken.
The group's Facebook eventsaid:
The Cube of Truth is a peaceful static demonstration aimed at revealing the realities of Australian animal agriculture and facilitating engagement with the public through vegan outreach.
One individual was observed standing in front of the demonstrators and eating from a box of KFC chicken, obviously trying to incite them. He sat eating slowly while the demonstrators played footage and pictures exposing the real source of the animal products we consume, including graphic depictions of violent animal killing.
All Cube of Truth protestors are encouraged to wear black and wear the V for Vendetta masks, which have grown to be associated with being edgy and virginal, which may take away from the message expressed by the group.
The page provides an explanation, “The mask has been used by Anonymous, as well as by thousands of others around the world in recent history, as a unifying symbol against the forces that still promote discrimination, corruption, injustice and oppression in any form in our society today. By wearing the mask, activists are together with the trillions of animals that are unnecessarily exploited and killed every year by the globalised animal-food industries.
I understand, I really do, but I truly believe that the mask's meaning has been lost, and it now sort of looks like something the Tories would employ in some poorly thought-out ad campaign to try and appeal to a younger demographic.

Conclusion

In any case, when the video was shared on TikTok, it quickly became popular and attracted a diverse audience. Some felt he was being dangerously disrespectful and childish, while others found it humorous.
Honestly, that wasn't really necessary.
