Vegan runner who is ‘offended’ by the smell of meat is slammed for asking neighbors to show ’empathy’ by closing the windows while cooking and only grilling vegetables on the BBQ

‘A vegan runner has been given a short shrift after they asked their neighbors not to cook with their windows open because the smell of meat is ‘offensive.’

The unnamed jogging-enthusiast, from Berkeley, California, was criticized online after their demand made it on to a Twitter thread by Best of Nextdoor, a Twitter account dedicated to neighbor-on-neighbor pettiness.

The runner, who admitted they found the smell of meat ‘overpowering’ when they go jogging at dinnertime, asked that their community show ’empathy for their plant-based neighbors’ by closing windows while cooking, and only grilling vegetables on the BBQ.

They also suggested that people might want to do some research about plant-based diets and join the vegan movement.

The runner’s post was retweeted more than 1,200 times and liked 9,700 times after it was shared on Twitter.’
