WAKA FLOCKA VS. THE VEGAN POLICE
Thanks, Vegan Police. We might have lost Waka Flocka. While he hasn't officially confirmed that he's off the vegan train, he's fed up with the way he's being treated by militant vegans.
In a recent interview with PAPER he explains why he's contemplating dropping the vegan card:
"It's not enlightened, man. They scare people and shit, like people are really scared of vegans. They're like the fucking cops. When vegans are around, people be trying to throw their food under the table, like oh, the vegans!"
We don't disagree with the ethical arguments for a vegan lifestyle (in fact, we're all for them) but the messengers can come off as self-righteous. Doesn't matter how good your argument is, the moral superiority BS is off-putting and doing everything but motivating change.
We share the same goals as the Vegan Police however we believe an inclusive, non-judgemental approach will get us to that goal faster. We aim to inspire, not condemn. Progress over perfection is ingrained at our core.
Mr. Flocka Flame, whether you decide to stay all-in or not, we got made love for you, homie. You will always be a Plant-Based Gangster to BLOK.
