Police in North Wales were accused of offending vegans after showing a meaty breakfast. 

A police team in North Wales thought they could get away with posting a photo of their team breakfast on Twitter without causing controversy, but they were surprised when a Twitter user called them out for posting a photo that would be offensive to vegans.

According to Indy 100, the Rural Crime Team in North Wales posted the team breakfast on December 18, and the meating was a very meat-centric meal. The table was laden with two serving platters of eggs, another two platters piled high with sausage, and a big plate of bacon. There was also toast, a bowl of baked beans, and what looks like a smaller mushrooms in the background, but judging from the breakfast, it doesn’t look like there are a lot of vegans on the Rural Crime Team.

There are some in the area, though, and a user going by “Diana” sent a tweet calling them out for the meat-heavy breakfast.

“Speaking as a tax payer I’d prefer them to be less selective when answering questions and perhaps not post breakfast pics that offend vegetarian/vegan followers - pretty thoughtless considering the job title they have,” Diana posted in a since-deleted tweet.

The Rural Crime Team posted a screenshot of Diana’s Tweet and declared they’d no longer be answering comments or questions on Twitter.


Some people really were offended, but more by Diana’s comment than the police photo.



From the looks of that photo, the Rural Crime Team is getting plenty of protein. A protein-heavy breakfast can help you feel full and energized longer, so here are 17 more protein-packed breakfasts that aren’t eggs.
