Several renowned authors including Christina Oxenberg, Jay McInerney and Candace Bushnell appeared at East Hampton Library’s Authors Night this past weekend for a fundraiser. According to a New York Post article, they were not happy when Gwyneth Paltrow stole their limelight by appearing with her family and entourage to promote her cookbook It’s All Good. Sour grapes? I think so. How did the authors handle it? By placing stinky meat products near Gwyneth’s table and publicly mocking her vegan lifestyle. And Gwyneth is not even a vegan!
It’s not that I’m a huge Gwyneth-lover coming to her defense. She clearly doesn’t need my help. But what’s with all the vegan bashing? Why do these writers feel compelled to portray veganism as a trendy diet for privileged celebrities? They are authors, after all. Shouldn’t they be well-read? Didn’t they read bestsellers such as The China Study by T. Colin Campbell and Eating Animals by the well-respected author Jonathan Safran Foer? I guess not. Maybe they just don’t care about issues of health, the environment, and animal cruelty. Or maybe they don’t read books other than their own. Tsk tsk!
