Outrage At Anti-Vegan Who Ate Raw Pig’s Head At VegFest


1 Minutes Read

Outrage has sparked after an anti-vegan ate from a raw pig’s head, at Brighton’s annual VegFest event.

The raw-meat-eater, an infamous YouTuber called Sv3rige, performed the same stunt last year at a vegan food festival in Amsterdam, and is now planning an ‘Anti-Vegan’ tour across the UK and Australia.

Vegan influencer, Veggie Vince, who witnessed the incidence, tweeted: “The guy who eats raw dead pigs turned up to VegFest. To eat his raw dead pig in front of us all… What kinda sad b******s come to a vegan event to eat a raw pigs head like it’s an achievement?”

Activists from the animal-rights organization, Direct Action Everywhere, stood around the man, holding up signs reading ‘meat is murder’ and ‘it’s not food, it’s violence’.

‘A Nigel Farage march’

Manager of Vegfest UK, Tim Barford, said: “We knew about the planned protest and were expecting 30 protestors – three turned up, which was slightly sad for them and reminiscent of a Nigel Farage march.

“But they proceeded to upset kids and members of the public, and with that in mind, the police arrived, gave them a warning and sent them packing.”

‘Revolting spectacle’

Barford added: “What was interesting was that we had meat-eating members of the public saying that this revolting spectacle had encouraged them to give up eating meat – so it seems the anti-vegan protest actually encouraged people to go vegan.”
