Celebrity Chef, Jamie Oliver, has told the Sunday Times that vegans annoy him. Jamie Oliver, AKA the Naked Chef, says that his restaurants have been targeted by 20 “scruffy, weird-looking fellas”.
Oliver claims that these activists put Ipads showing slaughtered animals in front of kids having spaghetti bolognese.
He said: “They hate me because we do stories about higher welfare meat, which I am deeply passionate about, but for them it is on or off — there ain’t no stepping stones, whereas I’m all about stepping stones.
“Vegans do annoy me, but I also do care for them.”
This sweeping generalisation is unlikely to go down well with the growing number of vegans in the UK.
