A Chef in Shropshire, England has following backlash she received after admitting she “spiked” a vegan on Facebook.
The Chef, Laura Goodman, was co-owner of Carlini restaurant and according the NME has received death threats since her comments.
According the the report, Goodman responded to a comment on a Facebook group about feeding vegans non-vegan cuisine. “Spiked a vegan a few hours ago,” the post said.
The comment was met with some pretty harsh backlash.
Goodman has since apologized saying, “I’m deeply sorry for my comments, no meat products were added.”
“We appreciate the outrage Laura’s ill-judged comment on social media has caused and would like to apologize for what it insinuated,” the restaurants co-owner Micahel Gale has said.
Adding, “She had spent a lot of time designing a special vegan menu for a party, who then decided to choose something from the existing menu – one meal of which was a cheese-based pizza, which isn’t vegan friendly. This is what she meant by the Facebook comment. In no way does this excuse the comment and we totally understand the anger it has subsequently caused.However, we want to assure everyone that the meals were all prepared to our usual high standards and in accordance with the Food Standards Agency. No meat was used in any of the dishes.”
