Gossip Girl Knocks Veganism With Jokes Of Seitan
Oh no they didn’t!!! On a recent episode of Gossip Girl, Serena is preparing to attend Brown University and shares a little joke about veganism with Blair. Here’s how it went down:
Blair: The headmistress asked if I could come meet her at school. Figure she wants to have tea like we did when I first applied to Yale. What are you doing?
Serena: I’m just reading the Brown catalog. Oh, and I ordered a home dreadlocking kit. Wanna meet up later?
Blair: Definitely! Maybe we can get a jump start on your veganism — have some celebratory seitan at Angelica Kitchen?
Serena: I can’t think of anything better…or grosser.
Wow, Gossip Girl...really? It’s so early nineties to think that veganism has anything to do with dreadlocks at all! With about a billion sexy celebs out there rocking a compassionate lifestyle it’s just silly to think that only hippies rock the tofu.
Full disclosure: a very close friend of mine is on the show and a long time ago I worked at Angelica Kitchen…so maybe I’m a little biased. What do you think? Was this a devious jab at the vegan lifestyle or just playful little nudge? Chime in a share your thoughts, yo!!
