[Ed. – Damned if you do, damned if you don’t.]
A vegan’s bizarre rant claiming a meat-eating woman is guilty of cultural ‘appropriation’ because she enjoys tofu has gone viral.
College student Anna Del Rey, 17, from Michigan, shared screenshots of the extraordinary messages she received from a vegan on Facebook Messenger, which accused her of ‘stealing’ food from vegans.
She was first contacted by the mysterious vegan, whose identity she has protected, after sharing a recipe for ‘tofurkey’ – a meat substitute that looks like turkey and is usually made from tofu – with a vegan Facebook group.
Screenshots, which have been shared more than 3,500 times since they were uploaded on Wednesday evening, show how initial pleasantries between the two quickly escalated into a baffling rant when the vegan found out that Anna eats meat.
The bizarre exchange began when the vegan contacted Anna to praise her tofurkey recipe, which she had shared online.
