Lee Hyo Ri clarifies: “I’m not against meat eaters” #leehyori
Singer Lee Hyo Ri clarified her recent remarks which stirred an online controversy.
On June 10, Lee tweeted, “I went on Twitter during my concert and I realized that my tweet stirred big controversy. I’m not against meat eaters. I don’t think they are bad but I just don’t like raising animals in factory farms. Because it’s healthier for people to eat well raised animals.”
She added, “Don’t misunderstand me with provocative articles. I don’t want to force you to eat vegetables or blame people who eat meat. I just want people know how the meat was produced before they eat it.”.
The reason Lee had to explained herself is because she created a controversy by saying, “Don’t turn your head even though it’s uncomfortable. Look at the truth about the foods we eat everyday in real life.” The comment was misconstrued into Lee wanting to force people to eat vegetables.
People responded: “It doesn’t sound like she is forcing people to become vegetarians. She just said things that she wants to say.” “I thought there is a big event.” “Since Lee is explaining, let’s try not to misunderstand her.”Source: TV Report
