Popular Vegan Restaurant Owners Get Death Threats After They Start Raising and Eating Meat

Popular Vegan Restaurant Owners Get Death Threats After They Start Raising and Eating Meat

The owners of Cafe Gratitude and Gracias Madre have been slowly transitioning meat into their diets, and fans aren’t happy

Vegans and animal activists who have frequented the restaurant feel duped.

The meat-free California-based Café Gratitude is widely known as one of the most popular vegan hotspots on the West Coast, with nods of approval from celebrities like Gwyneth Paltrow. What happens when the café’s owners, Matthew and Terces Engelhart, begin opening up about their transition to a meatier lifestyle after 40 years of vegetarianism, and actually begin raising and slaughtering their own animals? They get plenty of online protests and death threats.

Ever since the couple first announced their new commitment to ethically raising and slaughtering animals at their Be Love farm last year, there have been online attacks and in-person protests.

"People have taken up the mob mentality," Matthew told Hollywood Reporter. "It saddens me that the choices we made in the privacy of our home would lead people to feel so betrayed that it's elevated to threats on our lives. I'm very discouraged."

Café Gratitude, with multiple locations in Los Angeles, as well as the San Francisco-based Gracias Madre, are known for unique, vegetable-based dishes that place emphasis on well-being and animal welfare.

"The reason we're so upset is that veganism is a belief system," Carrie Christianson, who started the Facebook boycott group said. "You are patronizing a restaurant that you think has that philosophy, and it turns out it doesn't. Vegans should know that this restaurant has a farm that slaughters animals."

However, you have “hit a brick wall” with local police because the Detective determined there wasn’t a reason to pursue the report.

Severe, ongoing harassment can lead to a nervous breakdown in addition to a plethora of medical conditions if not stopped.

Before you can continue on, you need to judge how severe the harassment is. Do you feel that you are on the verge of breaking down? Is the harassment to the point where it is now hurting your work abilities, your family life and your relationships with others?
