I'm sure that at least some people here have fell victim to the videos of "Freelee the Banana Girl" on YouTube - a hardcore vegan who preaches nonstop about how veganism is the one and only way of life. And, yes, this is the SAME girl who explicitly stated that anyone who eats meat does not deserve to live.
Recently, she has made a response video (and a borderline-bullying parody) to another famous YouTuber, Ingrid Nilsen. In this video, Ingrid showcased her recipe of a chicken and egg waffle sandwich. Freelee's response is below:
Here is the parody:
My question is , why do (a large majority of) vegans CONSTANTLY brag about how their way of life is the only right one? Is it so impossible to just go about your business with your mouth shut and let others do the same? I'm sorry if this question might be upsetting to some people, but I really find these kinds of people very annoying. It almost makes me not want to become a vegan because of how awful they act.

It's how they seek validation because at the core of their personality they aren't confident they are living the right lifestyle or making the right choices. By making the other choices seem like shit they feel more confident about their choice.(this isn't exclusive to vegans nor is this all vegans just the big mouth ones)
I just treat people like this like I treat a toddler who's clearly causing trouble.
Ignore them. They will continue their behavior even worse when you ignore them but if you continue to ignore the toddler after they act out even worse eventually they figure out they won't get the response they want and give up.6

I think it's because being a vegan is really hard and they want everyone to know about their determination. I would hate being a vegan I wouldn't want to be with friends and someone suggests we grab a bite to eat and be that person constantly saying, can't eat there, or there, or there.3
