Vegan’s Reaction to Accidentally Eating Cheese Goes Viral

YouTuber Powsimian’s reaction to eating animal products had many calling him immature. He answered back, “This is the animal holocaust.”

YouTuber Matthew Blunt—aka Powsimian on the video-sharing site—was the subject of widespread ridicule after a video of the long-time vegan’s reaction to unwittingly eating cheese went viral. In the clip, Blunt discusses his transition to veganism while eating a delivery pizza topped with sauce, peppers, and greens. After a while and halfway through his pizza, however, Blunt slows to examine his food. Suspicious, the vlogger calls the parlor to find out that it uses parmesan cheese in its marinara sauce. Blunt throws his phone in frustration and goes on to say, “Do you know a single place that makes pizza with cheese in the sauce? … I’m pissed.” The video made the rounds on Reddit and garnered a myriad of negative comments from non-vegans. “I loved watching this guy suffer! Laughed so hard!” read one comment. Following the reaction, Blunt uploaded a response video to those claiming he was enduring “first-world problems.” “Let me explain this to you,” Blunt said. “I know Reddit, you don’t understand this, but it’s wrong to kill animals. And when you find out that the unnecessary, rape, torture, and exploitation of animals was put inside your food—and you being pissed about that … is not being immature, being ‘ungrateful’ of the food … it’s the principle of the matter, man. Thanks to Reddit for the hate.”
