This Italian Chef Says He Wants to Kill All Vegans
24 August, 2016
Chef Gianfranco Vissani is no fan of the softly, softly approach it seems. The Italian chef has compared veganism to a sect and says he would “kill them [vegans] all.”
Vissani made the remarks on Italian cooking show In Onda. According to The Independent. The Italian TV chef claimed that “Vegans are like a sect, they’re like Jehovah’s Witnesses. What would I do with vegans? I’d kill them all.”
Chef Davide Oldani, who was also on the show, reportedly rubbished Vissani’s comments.
Veganism is a hot topic in Italy currently. Politician Elvira Savino of the Forza Italia party recently proposed that parents who impose vegan diets on their children should face jail, following a string of high profile cases involving malnourished kids.
Chef Gordon Ramsay is also famously no fan of veganism, making the tongue in cheek claim that he is allergic to vegans.
