      I support , not happily but unfortunately I have to. Consumers that dine out have to know what there getting. You can’t advertise A-5 Kobe beef and serve some bullshit wagyu . Don’t tell me it’s something if it’s not .... Side note: I do hope more vegan options pop up in ocean county NJ, unfortunately I think this is HIGHLY unlikely.

        I agree that consumers should know what they're getting, but is there really an expectation that your Impossible Burger will be cooked on a separate vegan grill in a Burger King? This just seems like a money grab to me.

      I am vegan and I oppose this lawsuit. I agree 100% with this writers POV.

        Wow first I'm hearing of this. The author makes some great points. Also Seitanosaurus is a fantastic name.

        I don't know how these plaintiffs can look themselves in the mirror. Even if this lawsuit gets thrown out it's still going to cost an untold number of animal lives by signalling to restaurant owners everywhere that adding vegan options to their menu is a potential liability. I really hope Burger King doesn't settle and the case gets dismissed with prejudice.

          Wow, I was watching the impeachment hearings and didn’t think I could hear anything more ridiculous than Nunes’ opening remarks, but here we are brought to us by The Article of the Day. It reminds me of the McDonald’s lawsuit where the chain was sued by a customer who said their coffee was too hot when it spilled all over them in their car!!

      What the hell !!! We are a nation of frivolous ridiculousness. I’ve heard the impossible burger is very tasty and was so happy that there were some non meat options at a fast food restaurant. Sharing the grill with a piece of meat is a small price to pay for a vegan option. I wish people were as passionate about the bigger picture... how to honor all life on this planet and were willing to share more (resources and wealth) or maybe just a spot on the grill.

      There’s an asshole in every crowd. In this case an egocentric one also. This lawsuit is so ridiculous and harmful to the cause of Veganism, I hope she has to pay “frivolous lawsuit” lawyer fees!

      What strikes me the most from this article is the point of feeling superior because you’re vegan and how that does nothing in support of saving animal lives. I know as a culture we love to identify ourselves as something - I am a vegan, I am a feminist, I am an activist, I am a Democrat etc...And what this does, in the end, is further separate us, makes us even more judgmental, more arrogant, angry and a part of the problem instead of the solution. When I was younger and a vegetarian at a time when it was new and experimental (the 70’s), I went through my own feelings of “specialness”. What began as a choice based on the horrors of the meat industry suddenly became about me! It seems to be a danger in the process of becoming conscious and wanting to make choices that are in the interest of the greater good. Hopefully this lawsuit will shed light on this very important issue. A vegan burger next to a meat burger seems the perfect metaphor for tolerance, acceptance and understanding that we are all in this together. I truly hope this lawsuit it thrown out along with the self importance that initiated it.
