That says it all.
All it says is that the stereotype of compassionate vegans is just that; a stereotype.
I agree with Summer. The company was in trouble for false advertising, something that any who cares about public health should support. The claim didn't make anyone rich, it just forced the company to stop marketing Nutella as a healthy breakfast food for children. If you're too smart for that, great. If you think you're too smart to be bought in by advertising ever, HAHAHAHAHAHAHA, I've got a few billion dollars worth of advertising companies who have psychologists on staff that I'm sure would love to show you how smart you really are.
It's good that we are trained through our healthy endeavors to examine the ingredient lists and nutrition information, but a lot of well-intentioned people are not, and while I wouldn't expect any of you naysayers to bend over backward to help them, it seems a petty thing to criticize anyone for asking for advertising to be more honest.
