The tweet was shared on August 20. It has since accumulated over 4.5 lakh views, and the numbers are still increasing. Many were shocked at the man’s petition and took to the comments section to share their thoughts.

Here’s how people reacted to this post:

An X user claimed that he had a word with the man and got to know the purpose behind this unusual petition. The user wrote, “The dude is actually vegan. When I asked him what he was on about, he said, ‘If you can eat chicken, why can’t you eat dogs’. After around 30 mins of arguing, I went: ‘Why hold this sign if you’re vegan?’ And, he simply said, ‘Would you stop if it said to be vegan.’ It’s actually very smart.”

“He’s still there with the sign,” posted another. A third added, “This is ridiculous.”

A third joined, “I don’t eat any meat, but how does it bother people more than other animals? Someone explain, please.”
