Must not disrespect Vegans

A chocolate milk brand has come under fire after publishing an advert that has been deemed offensive to vegans.

An image appeared on OAK's Facebook page this week which read: 'Hungrythirsty is pathetic, like a vegan sausage. Kill HungryThirsty dead.'

Within hours, angry customers had taken to the site to express their disdain - with one woman branding it 'disgusting advertising'.

The image appears to have been removed and MailOnline has contacted OAK's parent company Parmalat for comment.

OAK is a popular flavoured milk drink in Australia but the brand has drawn criticism from vegans all over the world.

Bek Varcoe wrote: 'Hate this ad - appealing to the lowest common denominator again...'

Rachel Walker, from Perth, blasted the company as 'pathetic'. She wrote: 'Trying to buy into the bogan, testosterone market. No company should call a section of the community pathetic. You should be ashamed.'

The objectors are the ones who are pathetic.

If the shoe fits, Ms. Walker, wear it. Your comment is proof that it does indeed fit. After all, a "vegan meat product" is actually an oxymoron. ("Dr. Poole is right. You're an ox and a moron!")

The vegans that are complaining are obviously not their customers anyway and all they're doing by being so vocal is giving the company free advertising. Pure genius!

It is always entertaining to watch the vitriol of the "offended" against perceived slights. If they would make logical arguments rather than resorting to name-calling it would show more intellectual maturity. Unfortunately most (not all) progressives are stunted intellectually because they rely on emotions rather than intellect.

I have had the misfortune of being served and consuming a vegetarian hamburger. Pathetic is a reasonable descriptor. Yuck.

Heads up stupid vegans - you're made out of meat!!!

More CO2, more plants, more plant eaters (vegans), more carnivores, which are the top of the food chain. I also love dolphins, they taste like chicken.

I you are what you eat, I'd rather eat meat.

So many good points above. I especially like this one:
"If you are what you eat, I'd rather eat meat."

Personally, I expect the company intended the reaction from vegans. I expect the company would've done a cost and risk verses potential increased sales and decided it was worth it. A good move too, I think.

Besides, vegans/vegetarians are mostly spiteful, catty, self-righteous, nasty types who make out they are morally/ethically/spiritually superior humans just because they don't eat meat. Of course there are some sane and pleasant ones, but mostly they are quite mad and delusional.

HITLER WAS A VEGAN so was POL POT and CHARLES MANSON'S a VEGAN as well and besides many animals get chopped up just to make the bread they eat and more Birds and Bugs die just so they can enjoy their salads and veggie burgers
