This sentiment finds resonance with Taylor Sheridan, the mastermind behind the popular show “Yellowstone” and the owner of a vast ranch in Texas. Sheridan minced no words when expressing his views on vegans and their principles during a recent appearance on Joe Rogan’s podcast, delivering a scathing critique of everything they stand for.
The talented writer said the following (via Whiskey Riff):
I think one of the most absurd positions anyone can take, is they’re a vegan for an ethical reason. It’s preposterous. You can do it for a medical reason. I don’t know what that reason would be, maybe you can’t process meat and can’t process proteins like that. But to do it for an ethical reason is absurd. And the reason I say that is I have plowed a field. It is carnage. It is 12-feet of carnage. And every single plant that you eat is going to be tilled into the ground at some capacity. So you’re gonna kill everything…People have to understand, you have to take ownership.
If you look anywhere in the ecosystem, take man out of it. Virtually everything is living at the expense of another organism, to the degree that if a certain weed grows up over the grass it’s killing the grass.
This little sapling grows up over the grass, it’s killing the grass. If the grass grows up before the weeds, it kills the weeds… there is not a vegan fish, there’s not a vegetarian fish. Every fish, every frog, they’re eating another organism to survive. Every one of them.
