‘Cancer on you and your family’

Nick Rapps (35) who runs a butcher shop in Frampton Cottrell (UK), found two protesting signs outside the shop. One sign said: “Cancer on you and your family”. Another written said: “Rot in hell murdering sc*m”.

Several media outlets suggest the signs came from vegans and were linked to animal rights protests in nearby Bristol earlier in the day. They frame the vegans and animal rights advocates as sick and radicalised. 

Wishing bad health, disabilities or even death on others will certainly not make people open to consider veganism or animal rights.
This is not the way to go. Spread a peaceful and compassionate message. Open their hearts and minds.
