EARTHLING ED TAKES PART IN THIS MORNING DEBATE
It was a debate about 'militant' vegans
Vegan YouTube star and activist Earthling Ed appeared on British TV show This Morning to take part in a debate called "Are 'militant' vegans going too far?"
Veganism has featured heavily on British TV over the last few days with Good Morning Britain and a number of radio stations discussing the recent issues regarding William Sitwell.
Ed defended the vegan community saying he receives regular abuse online.
He said: "Knowledge is power. When we are giving both sides of the argument we can make an informed decision based on how we feel on the situation.
"For so long we've been filled with the same propaganda about needing meat for protein or needing dairy for calcium.
"We need to put across the suffering of animals and the impact our consumption of meat and dairy has on our planet."
