A top Italian chef has brought down the wrath of vegans after he said they were a ‘sect’ and said he would like to ‘kill them all’. Gianfranco Vissani – a hugely popular TV chef – told the On Air prime time chat show, ‘Vegans are like members of a sect, they’re like Jehovah’s Witnesses. It’s true, and I mean vegans, not vegetarians. What would I do with the vegans? I would kill them all.
Naturally, his comments haven’t gone down too well on social media.
Many vegans responded angrily to Vissani’s attack on their diet, saying he was ‘living proof that eating meat is bad for you’.
