View­ers hit out at TV ve­gan ac­tivist

Manchester Evening News - - NEWS -

VIEW­ERS re­acted to the ap­pear­ance of a ve­gan ac­tivist on ITV’s This Morn­ing pro­gramme.

‘Ve­gan­uary’ – the avoid­ance of an­i­mal prod­ucts for the whole of Jan­uary – be­came a topic of de­bate as hosts Ruth Langs­ford and Eamonn Holmes posed the ques­tion ‘Is Ve­gan­uary dam­ag­ing the strug­gling meat in­dus­try?’

But This Morn­ing view­ers were unim­pressed by ve­gan ac­tivist Joey Arm­strong, slam­ming him as “em­bar­rass­ing to watch.”

After he snapped at the TV hosts, and de­scribed how he had heard “pigs scream for their lives” at a Manch­ester slaugh­ter­house, one viewer tweeted: “As a ve­gan my­self the #Ve­gan­uary rep­re­sen­ta­tive needs bet­ter com­mu­ni­ca­tion skills and learn how to de­bate.”
