A vegan woman went on a social media tirade after she found out that her friends had fed her chicken nuggets at a party when she was drunk.
The 24-year-old woman, who goes by “u/veganthrowaway192847” on Reddit delivered a short-essay-length explication of what had happened at the party, using the social media site as a release valve to vent her frustration.
The post, currently at 32,000 upvotes, on the r/AmITheAsshole Subreddit details her story where she explains she was “white girl wasted” at the party and that she hadn’t eaten meat since she “was roughly 3-4 years old when I found out where meat comes from (spoiler alert: there were a lot of tears).”
She says, “I checked with them before chowing down “are these vegan?” To which my friends replied “yeah, they’re sunfed” (a type of vegan chickenless chicken). They tasted off to me but I figured it was just because I was drunk. I was wrong.”
She found out the following day that she was tricked into eating the poultry-based product when her sister advised her to check her friend’s Snapchat stories.
She tells, “The story was them showing the nugget packaging, and then showing them giving them to me (including the conversation where I asked if it was vegan)
“The and then later them mocking me and pretending to be me when I found out I ate meat (things like fake crying and yelling “the CHICKENS!!!”).”
The woman says she recorded the Snapchat story and took it to the police and claims her three (ex) friends are potentially facing charges for food tampering.
She finishes her post by asking the board, “they all think that I’m overreacting to a ‘harmless’ prank, so Reddit, AITA (Am I the a**hole)?”
In her opinion her friends took advantage of her inebriated state and publicly humiliated her–even if it were “just a prank.”
