Eating meat has become a bit of a touchy subject over the last few years.

Veganism has become extremely popular but some people aren't exactly fans of the vegan diet... and of the people who choose to tell others to transition to it.

Celebrity chef Jamie Oliver has had a few issues with vegan activists over the years.


In March, his restaurant in Bristol, south of London, was targeted by a group of activists after they had heard his comments about "happy milk" according to The Daily Mail.

This has been an ongoing conflict that has resulted in Jamie now being extremely frank when discussing vegans.


In a recent interview with the Sunday Times magazine in the UK, the chef has flat out said that vegans "annoy" him.

He explained that they "hate" him because he is a fan of "higher welfare meat".

"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."

Jamie doesn't seem to strongly hate the vegan community though.

"Vegans do annoy me, but I also do care for them."


Recently, a Netflix documentary called What The Health has come under fire about its strong vegan values.

Scientists and dietitians have spoken out about the documentary's strange claims, such as eggs being just as bad for you as cigarettes.

What do you think about the vegan diet?
