Vegan Asks Neighbours Not To Cook Meat Outside As The Smell Is “Offensive”

A vegan jogger has asked their neighbours not to cook meat outside as the resulting smell offends them.

They can jog on, right?! Nah I don’t actually think that, but this is the kind of story that gives vegans the wrong kind of image to the public.

This comes as one vegan jogger in California decided that they weren’t happy with all of the meat smells that emanated from people’s houses and gardens as they cooked meat.

With that, they sent an email to their local community and once again, I don’t want to spread hate, but this is possibly one of the wankiest emails I’ve ever read.

It reads:

what’s up neighbourhood, one love

As a vegan runner, it’s always hard for me this time of year when the weather starts warming up and folks start opening their windows.

Several nights a week I’m out running around dinnertime and when people have their windows open I can smell what they are cooking.

I’ve noticed a sharp uptick recently in the smell of folks cooking meat and it can be quite overpowering.”

He then says some other pointless things, before adding:

I don’t want to be a stereotype, so I won’t go into detail why the odor of cooking animals is offensive.

But I encourage you to do your research and join the movement of ppl who are fighting back.

Honestly, that person saying “I don’t want to be a stereotype” is like when a racist person says something racist and then follows that by saying “I’m not racist… I’ve got loads of black friends!

The email was shared to Twitter by the account Best of Nextdoor, which presumably means that the pleas fell on deaf ears.

Who opens an email with “one love”?

There’s nothing wrong with being vegan; in fact it’s a fairly admirable ethical choice, but there is a lot wrong with being self-important, preachy and demanding.

Go for a run at a time other than dinner time, and rather than telling a group of people to “do your research“, let people get on with their lives and stop giving vegans a bad name.

I don’t know. Maybe I’m just an idiot.
