Newsy's Cody LaGrow asked YouTube personality Mic The Vegan why so many have beef with people who don't even eat it.By Cody LaGrow | July 14, 2016
A vegan, by definition, is a person who does not eat or use animal products. But it seems their care for animals gets lost in every comment section — and vegans are prone to harsh judgment by people who can't fathom a life without leather boots and chicken nuggets. Newsy's Cody LaGrow sat down with Michael Dearborn, a YouTube personality who educates the public on his plant-based lifestyle, to address why he thinks some people hate vegans.
Cody LaGrow: Why do people hate vegans?
Michael Dearborn: There's this social idea that vegans are these smug, annoying people that are super brazen, and yes, some of them are super brazen people. And those are the ones you hear about. And that vegans are not normal. That they're like these crazy fringe people.
