While veganism is becoming more and more popular, it also attracts a bunch of haters. Among them are two men who, for some traction on TikTok, filmed themselves eating fried chicken in front of vegan activists.

The two showed up uninvited at a pro-vegan demonstration in Melbourne's CBD and started eating a KFC Zinger Box facing the activists. While doing so, they filmed themselves sharing their stunt on social media.

Nick and Bill already have a good following on TikTok, with 85,000 fans. For them, they posted a video with an overlaid text reading 'Eating a Zinger Box in front of vegan protesters.'

As they stand next to each other, stuffing their faces with fried chicken, we can hear one of the activists calling them 'morons.' The man goes on asking them if they think they are 'funny.'

In reaction to that, Bill asks:

Calm Reactions From The Activists

The vegan protesters were mostly unfazed. Some even appreciated the attention. One of them expressed positive feelings about the episode, stating:

"I actually really appreciate these guys being here, it's creating a spectacle for others."

A woman attending the rally told the TikTokers about why she decided to adopt a vegan diet. All the while, Nick and Bill kept chewing their chicken-based snack.

The caption of the video reads 'not all superheroes have capes', with the hashtags 'anti-vegan' and 'vegan teacher'.

Some People Found It Funny

Some people praised the TikTokers' action, mentioning freedom of speech as a reason to mock vegans. One person commented:

"They're pushing their veganism on the public, so what's wrong with what the boys are doing. Freedom people".

Another, on the same line of thought, wrote:

"If they're pushing their ideas on us, we can push our ideas on them".

Many Did Not Appreciate The Stunt

Many other Internet users were not impressed by the performance, which they saw as disrespectful to fellow humans. Among them, several non-vegans took the activists' side. One wrote:

"This isn't funny or cool, I'm not even vegan but it's about respecting others."

Another mentioned acceptance for people's opinions, even if they are different from ours, stating:

"I am not vegan and never will be, but I will never disrespect someone just because we have different views about something."

A third took a similar stance, writing:

"They're not disrupting anyone and they were being polite. Why did you go out of your way to buy food and eat it in their face and film it? That's weird."

Whichever side you are on, it seems like both the TikTokers and the protesters got what they wanted: attention. Let's call it a win-win.
