A woman laid a charge with the police against her friends after they tricked her into eating meat as a prank, which they filmed and shared on social media.

According to the woman, who posted the story on Reddit, she was drunk when her friends thought it would be funny to feed her chicken nuggets.

“I checked with them before chowing down, ‘Are these vegan?’ To which my friends replied ‘Yeah, they’re sunfed,’ [which is] a type of vegan chickenless chicken,” she wrote. “They tasted off to me but I figured it was just because I was drunk. I was wrong.”

The woman, who said she hadn’t eaten meat in a decade, only found out what had happened to her the next day when her sister sent her a message “telling me to check my friends’ Snapchat story”.

“The story was them showing the nugget packaging, and then showing them [the friends] giving them to me, including the conversation where I asked if it was vegan.”

She said another video showed them mocking her and pretending to be her if she eventually found out she had eaten meat. “Things like fake crying and yelling, ‘The chickens’!” 

She recorded the video and took it to the police on the grounds of food tampering.

“Now three of my ex-friends are facing charges,” she wrote in a Reddit group titled “Am I the a**hole?” The group allows people to post stories about differences of opinion and readers can respond with their views.

She says her former friends think she’s “overacting to a harmless prank”.

“In my view, they took advantage of my drunken state, tampered with my food and publicly humiliated me.”
