According to a recent report, veganism in the U.S. has increased by 600% in just three years, with 6% of their sizeable 330 million population now opting for a plant-based diet.
With such a significant spike in populatiry it’s inevitable that there would be those who would protest against the movement. That being said, this guy took things to an insane new level.
Allow us to expand. During VegfestUK, an annual vegan food festival in Brighton, England a protestor was caught on camera eating a raw pig’s head in an effort to hit back at local vegans and foodies attending the festival.
The protester, who calls himself Sv3rige on YouTube, believes veganism “is human cruelty”, but is apparently fine with brandishing severed animal heads.
You can see the crazy moment below:
A few protests were expected, but not this, says Tim Barford, manager of VegfestUK. “We knew about the planned protest and were expecting 30 protestors – three turned up, which was slightly sad for them.”
This isn’t the first time that Sv3rige has stirred controversy with his vegan protests. A while back in his native Amsterdam, the YouTuber was filmed chewing on a raw, chunk of bloody meat at a vegan festival while wearing a t-shirt that reads “Go Vegan and Die”.
The clip, which you can watch below, has now been viewed over 1 million times:
The protester spoke to local reporters:
“We did it – it was eight of us – because veganism is malnutrition and you can’t get over 15 nutrients from plants and some of us are ex-vegans who got sick because of it.”
What’s your thoughts on this extreme form of protest?
