Throw another celebrity misuse of the word vegan on the pile!
Last night, DJ Khaled used the power of snapchat to let his fans know that he’ll be “going vegan” for 22 days. The vegan thread on Reddit caught wind of it immediately, and the discussions about whether this was hot or not began.

For all those hopeful that his choice to try eating vegan will support others to try, too, we hope that extends to Drake.
