BITE from a dog left a vegetarian so so angry with animals, he went to McDonald’s for immediate revenge.
Mariano de la Canal said he immediately changed his eating habits and found himself in the burger chain “automatically” after the attack.
De la Canal, from Argentina, is best known as a vegan influencer who has more than 455,000 followers on Instagram.
At this stage, it’s unclear whether the transition to meat will affect his future career.
“I stopped being a vegetarian because a dog bit me, so I got angry and said, ‘I’m campaigning for animals, and then one of them comes and bites me,'” he told Infobae.
“That’s when I stopped being a vegetarian.”
“The truth is I’ve campaigned for all of that, vegan, vegetarian, all of that.
“But a dog bit me on the street and I said, ‘Wow, I’m trying so hard for them and one of their dogs comes and bites me’.
“So no, I automatically went to McDonald’s.”
The influencer first rose to fame after appearing on the reality TV show Showmatch.
He is also a huge fan of the Argentinian actress, model and football player Mauro Icardi’s wife, Wanda Nara,
Showmatch is an Argentine dance and entertainment program in which the audience decides whether the participants stay or go get the boot.
Mariano may have found what he was looking for at McDonald’s.
The fast food giant now offers McPlant burgers to cater to vegans.
This new fast food is made with plant-based pâté and the Vegetarian Association has certified it as an approved vegan product.
