Because Uli Hoeneß described vegans and vegetarians as "militant", the honorary president of FC Bayern is now facing fierce headwinds from all sides.
Munich - There are topics that are discussed more emotionally than others. Meat-free diet is definitely one of them. The response is correspondingly large when celebrities comment on it. And when the celebrity is still called Uli Hoeneß * and starts off in the usual manner, then the outcry is huge. After his incendiary speech for the lust of the flesh, the honorary president of FC Bayern Munich gets verbal bells on social media - and German film stars are now calling on the 69-year-old to disclose his blood values and CO2 balance.
On Sunday (October 17), Hoeneß first explained to the radio station
that he respected the diet of others and then said a few things that suggest the opposite: “I still accept a bit vegetarian, vegan at all, because the people just getting sick in the long run, ”said Uli Hoeneß in the one-hour radio talk.
Hoeneß complains about vegetarian "stuff" and hands out against vegans
He had tried to eat vegetarian, but he didn't like “the stuff”, explained Hoeneß: “Because everything is in there that shouldn't be in a Nuremberg sausage, namely stabilizers and flavor enhancers”.
The former Bayern boss and co-founder of the Bratwurst company HoWe described vegans and vegetarians as "militant".
These statements are making waves on Twitter.
“Why is Hoeneß still socially acceptable in public?” Asked one user, “unbelievable fool” said another.
Above all, Hoeneß's diagnosis that all vegans would get sick amused the network.
A user overwrites a photo that shows Hoeneß eating bratwurst rolls with “Face color purple red, of course because of the good blood circulation.” Even the news channel
tweeted somewhat smugly, alluding to Hoeneß's tax evasion: “Uli Hoeneß doesn't just know each other Football and taxes, but also with sausages.
In the case of vegans, he diagnoses: 'They only get sick.' "
Hoeneß grills “militant” vegans - now he's getting his fat off celebrities
Film star Hannes Jaenicke, a vegan out of conviction, says to
: “Well, I haven't fallen off my bones yet.
I'm not militant either and my carbon footprint is probably better than that of Uli Hoeneß. ”Jaenicke's TV colleague Ursula Karven also does not want to leave Uli Hoeneß's statements:“ I am avowedly vegan and not militant.
Either way: Uli Hoeneß is wrong.
But he's also the son of a butcher, if I remember correctly.
We can also compare the blood values: I mean and Mr. Hoeneß his. ”
