The White Moose Café, located in Dublin, posted a plea to vegan customers asking for a kind heads up before coming into the restaurant with the expectation that they could eat a full vegan meal at the drop of a hat.
Once the vegan community caught wind of this, all hell broke loose. Taking to the café’s Facebook page in large numbers, they received over 2,000 one-star reviews. Unfortunately, the hate spewed at the restaurant for allegedly being “anti-vegan” caused the restaurant’s exposure to spread like wildfire, prompting a trolling post from the owner who had published the original Facebook update.
With their “no publicity is bad publicity” attitude, they went on to update their Facebook page with a vegan shaming cartoon to further stoke the fire.
(Side note: shout out to potatoes for keeping it the realest.)
From the exposure, the five-star reviews for The White Moose Café have no eclipsed the one-star reviews, which is probably the biggest middle finger of them all when it comes to the agenda the vegan army set out with.
…and this week alone they’ve seen their Facebook likes go up 18,735.1%.
You’d think the trolling would stop there after all the success the restaurant is having, but it hasn’t. In fact, it’s picked up in a huge way.
They’ve posted a dog who was (allegedly) having the special of the day, the beef rib sliders.
They’ve offered a weekend away for one lucky couple who provide a five-star review.
They’ve even had a special price for their “meat-rich” Irish Breakfast.
So yeah, you could say The White Moose Café is doing juuuuuuust fine. .
