A NatWest customer was told” all vegans should be punched in the face” when she called to apply for a bank loan.
Vegans are often unfairly given the reputation of pushing their beliefs on others and being aggressive with their viewpoints, but more often than not find themselves on the receiving outcome of defamation from non-vegans.
However, one vegan in Bristol was shocked to be told” all vegans should be swiped” by a NatWest bank worker when she applied for a loan to pay for a PS400 nutrition diploma.
The customer’s application was first rebuffed but after listening to sound recordings of the call after being alerted to the abusive remarks realise, NatWest has since offered to pay for the course and offered the status of women compensation of really under PS200.
According to the customer, the comment that” all vegans should be punched in the face” was made after telling the employee she was a vegan. The work in question told the customer that he made specific comments because he felt” vegans were magnetism their beliefs on to him” after vegan activists selected pictures of swine and wrote words such as” sidekicks not menu” in chalk on pavements near where he lived
Speaking to BBC Radio Bristol, the customer said:” He wasn’t happy to be speaking to me at all, his tone was genuinely unpleasant. Being vegan is a lifestyle preference, I shouldn’t be penalised for it, especially by a big organisation. It’s extremely biased .”
NatWest has released a statement on the matter saying:” We are extremely sorry for the style our purchaser was treated by a is part of our staff members and apologise for any distress and disturbed that this behaviour caused.
” These comments were absolutely inappropriate and we have commenced disciplinary proceedings.
” We have also specified feedback to the relevant sections of the bank to ensure that tasks are learnt so that a situation like this never happens again .”
