Vegan Presenter Jasmine Harman Cancelled Venue for Shooting Because it Wasn’t Vegan

Jasmine said that she did not shoot certain scenes due to her veganism. While reflecting on a time in Portugal, Jasmine told about her canceling a shoot at a hotel because the venue had a special menu item, a “succulent pig.” She reportedly asked the director,

“Are you actually asking me to promote a place that kills babies when they’re still breastfeeding from their mothers and eats them when I’ve got a baby myself?”

“I was like, ‘Are you absolutely insane? There is no way that I am going to do that.’”

Jasmine has been a vegetarian all her life and now she has been a vegan for 13 years. She added that after going vegan, she doesn’t feel comfortable promoting anything that she doesn’t agree with. Jasmine, recalling an incident from her small screen days when she milked a cow, said that at the time she was a vegetarian and didn’t realize the issue with the dairy industry. She added, “I was ignorant. I didn’t have a moral objection and [the] moral awareness to know.”

Jasmine has hosted the British property show for the last fifteen years. Her show, “A Place In The Sun,” airs weekdays on Channel 4 at 3 pm. To this, veganism isn’t just a diet, it is a way of life that abstains any direct or indirect connection with animal suffering. What is your say on Jasmine Harman’s decision? Comment below.

    “Succulent” means “delicious/tender/juicy.” A “suckling pig” is a pig fed on mother’s milk. Maybe it was a succulent suckling pig. Ew.

    Very courageous to stand up for her values especially with a tv show
    – brilliant explanation and so good that Place in the Sun, presumably agreed = a better world when we can speak out and the media respect that. Best wishes Jasmine
