Waka Flocka Flame Quits Plant Based Diet: ‘Vegans Are Like The F*cking Cops’

Musician Waka Flocka Flame has revealed that he is no longer vegan in an interview with Paper magazine.

The star – born Juaquin James Malphurs – says he is now a ‘conscious eater’ – blaming vegans for being ‘like the f**cking cops’.

‘Scared’

According to Flame: “I think the public scared me from being vegan. I got so conditioned, I got blinded from what’s really vegan.

“I got conditioned to just reading the label, and somebody says it’s vegan, so therefore it’s healthy. And it really wasn’t vegan… I’m at a crisis with myself.

“I’m at a battle with myself right now when it comes to this.

“What I call myself now is a conscious eater, meaning I’m conscious about the things I put in my mouth, and about the things that I drink.”

Last year the musician made a video with PETA

Title

The star says putting the ‘vegan’ label on him made him feel like he felt ‘better’ than other people.

He added: “If I’m saying I’m vegan and you’re not vegan, what does that make you?

“A sloppy motherf*cker? It f*cks with me. Just to seem like, ‘yo, you shouldn’t eat meat, that’s not good!’.

“Like who’s to say you can’t eat meat?”

Plants

He also said that plants have as ‘much life’ as animals do, as well as adding that vegans not eating honey is ‘going to far’.

He concluded: “It’s not enlightened, man. They scare people and sh*t, like people are really scared of vegans.

“They’re like the f*cking cops.

“When vegans are around, people be trying to throw their food under the table, like oh, the vegans!”
