Why this celebrity chef banned vegans from his restaurant: ‘They can f–k off’

Chef John Mountain of Perth's Fyre restaurant has stirred controversy by "banning" vegans from his establishment following a dispute with a customer over vegan options. Mountain took to social media to declare that all people who do not eat animal products are now banned from the restaurant for mental health reasons. The argument began when a young woman reached out to Mountain about vegan options before her visit, which ultimately resulted in her complaining about the lack of choices after her meal. While Mountain admits he had promised to accommodate her request, he had "sadly forgotten" by the time she visited. Since taking the fight public, the restaurant has received numerous one-star reviews and support from meat-eaters.
