"I'm sure all the fat vegans and vegetarians out there might have something else to say about that."

I'd just like to reassure you that it isn't just fat vegans who have gotten upset over PCRM's ads, but an entire community of ethical vegans who believe shaming of any kind is always wrong.

At least one member of their board has resigned over this issue, and a large portion of the vegan community has completely lost faith in the PCRM as an ethical organization. Since the PCRM is the most influential group of vegan nutritionists, this is a pretty big deal.

At least one participant of their panel has reconciled over this problem, and a large part of the vegetarian team has absolutely missing trust in the PCRM as an moral company. Since the PCRM is the most powerful list of vegetarian dieticians, this is a very big deal.
