Deliciously Ella Isn’t Vegan, Neither Is the Animal Clothing She Endorses

Like us on Facebook:

Famous Food Blogger Deliciously Ella is learning that the majority of people who eat vegan food are vegan. The health advocate has made a name for herself by sharing an abundance of plant-based dishes, and is now the face of Amanda Wakeley’s new SS16 campaign. The fashion line includes silk skirts, calf skin jackets, python skin handbags, and many more dead-animal pieces. And her fans aren’t having it

The thing is, Ella isn’t vegan. She advocates a plant-based diet, something she adopted to her help manage illness. She’s actually gone on record to say she hates the word vegan, and continues to feature meat on the menu at her deli, despite a similar uproar that choice faced.  

What I hope upset vegans understand is that this sort of label confusion is common. It’s exactly what I was getting at when I wrote “if you are on a plant-based diet, stop calling yourself vegan!

If people didn’t refer to Ella as vegan for having only eliminated animal products from her diet, then vegans would be much less surprised to see her wearing or endorsing animal clothing. Way more importantly, we should care about the general public having a better understanding that veganism is a rejection of violence, and not just a diet.

We can’t convince people to stop celebrating vegetables, but we can ask that those who do it for themselves forgo the word vegan. Vegans do it for the animals.
