Joe Rogan’s kale shake leads to Twitter skirmish with vegans

Sometimes it seems that Twitter was invented so people could post innocuous pictures of their lunches. Comedian Joe Rogan’s snap of a midday kale concoction, though, led to an ugly ideological battle.

Rogan’s reference to vegans as “freaks” didn’t take long to hit a nerve.

That last thing I quoted is exactly what I hate about some crazy vegans – a human telling me there's something wrong with reproducing

@joerogan Procreation should be the best thing we do.

Is celebrities mixing it up with fans and followers in ugly Twitter exchanges a new trend? Blake Shelton’s turtle-squashing joke turned into a multi-day affair.

Yet excited to let the world know she only eats plants – plants that could have been eaten by nice animals. Kill yourself, feed the crows

Woa @joerogan keep it calm, you'll need the vegans to throw tomatoes at you during stand up. You'd think an MMA announcer got beat up enough

Is this the final word from Rogan on the subject?

If you do choose a vegan diet, make sure you supplement with B12 or your brain will shrink http://t.co/GnLQoNeV
