A 60-year-old Pennsylvania vegan says she’s receiving death threats and violent phone calls—and she’s been forced to censor her Mother Nature Vegan Cuisine food truck—following her comments on Facebook derisive the deaths of dozens of Las Vegas concert-goers killed Sunday by a man sharpened at them incidentally from a hotel room.
“It seems like a lynch host is forming,” Delinda Jensen told The Times Leader journal of Wilkes-Barre.
Jensen’s life incited upside down following this Monday post to Facebook: “Yes, we am jaded. Fifty-nine beef eaters dead. How many animals will live since of this?” Under her post, Jensen eventually commented: “I don’t give a fuck about carnists anymore,” according to a screenshot published by Metro.
That was all created the day after the high-profile Las Vegas tragedy in which an assailant’s sharpened left 58 people passed and 489 wounded. Shooter Stephen Paddock killed himself in what was deemed the misfortune mass sharpened in complicated US history.
Meanwhile, Jensen doesn’t repudiate what she wrote on Facebook. She told the Times Leader that she is now vital in fear for her life after receiving death threats. As the paper reports:
“I (expletive) up,” Jensen pronounced while sitting at her kitchen list with son and business partner, Kyle, 28. “Was it feeble written? Absolutely. Do we bewail it? Yes. we am so contemptible we wrote that.”
Many Facebook users shared Jensen’s post, which generated hundreds of hate-filled comments and threats and little invulnerability of her stance.
Jensen emphatically insisted she was not happy about the death of 59 people.
“Meat eaters or not, no one deserves to die like that,” Jensen said. “I wasn’t celebrating the death of those people. That’s not how vegans think—we are non-violent.”
Jensen, who did not respond to Ars’ ask for an interview, pronounced she’s not certain how she’ll make a vital following her shutting down her food-truck operation. She pronounced she has “canceled all of the booked events. We had a really good product, too.” She has private her Facebook comment following the reaction.
Poor social media reactions to tragedy are by no means new, and Jensen isn’t the only one confronting blowback after posting about this many recent incident. CBS fired a clamp boss for criticizing some of the sharpened victims as being “Republican gun toters” who shouldn’t get anyone’s sympathy.
