Well that escalated quickly. Remember the vegan woman who was suing her neighbor because she found the smell of grilling meat offensive? She's about to be overrun with carnivores.
Cilla Carden has taken her case all the way to the Australian Supreme Court, and once she went on TV to complain, meat eaters around the country started to sizzle. Now a massive barbecue outside her home has been planned in retaliation.
There's a new Facebook page titled "Community BBQ for Cilla Carden," urging people to come and have a cookout right on her doorstep to keep the "good old Aussie tradition" of barbecuing alive. So far 3,500 people have said they will be attending the event, while another 9,000 others have said they might.
The description reads, "Cilla Carden has a problem with her neighbors cooking meat on their BBQ, because she’s a vegan. Recently taking them to the Supreme Court!"
"Don’t let Cilla destroy a good old Aussie tradition, join us for a community BBQ, and help Cilla Carden GET SOME PORK ON HER FORK.
"BYO hotdog buns, p.s. NO VEGANS"
That's a lot of shrimp on the barby!!!
The mass barbecue is scheduled for Saturday, October 19, and Carden has been in touch with her lawyers who are threatening prosecution for anyone who attends.
