Did you just call vegans weak?
26 October 2018 | by Oer-6See all my reviews

In this episode Mariah exclaims: "Are you a vegan now?" I am not vegan but I find this offensive to vegans. Veganism is proven healthier, better for the environment, and promotes better animal welfare. It doesn't matter where your protein comes from. Google vegan Olympic champions and vegan athletes / bodybuilding for some truth. Quote from a page result about vegans: Kendrick Farris, aka "the Only Dude on Earth Who Could Probably Take On Marvel Comics' Luke Cage"

"He was the only American male weightlifter to qualify for the Rio Olympics in 2016. During the U.S. Olympic Team Trials that year, he broke American records by lifting a total of 831 pounds in the clean and jerk."
