Vegans Protest For Vegan Donuts At Dunkin Donuts

Shot at East 14th Street between 2nd and 3rd Avenue. Vegans offering vegan donuts samples outside of Dunkin Donuts decry the use of factory farmed eggs in DD products. They had some gruesome caged chicken lit to go with. When asked if DD would change to a cage free supplier who used humane practices, one protester said "that would be an improvement, but that would never happen for such a large chain". It was pretty clear that I wasn't going to sell the vegan on eggs in any way. Wondering if she was offended by my leather shoes? Probably. In any case, I refused the sample as I try to avoid donuts altogether, vegan or not.

  3. Yeah, that is a ridiculous protest.

  4. I agree, the thought of protesting for donuts IS ridiculous, but the suffering of the hens whose eggs are used to make their donuts is a serious issue. Personally, I'd hold my judgement until after watching the undercover video from Dunkin's egg supplier.
