Tonight on What Would You Do? actors pose as vegans in a restaurant, another set of actors tries to feed the young "vegan" girl a hot dog while the mom is in the restroom. Set up to catch the reactions of bystanders, I wonder if anyone stepped in?<br><br>
I know I certainly would!

I'd definitely step in.. without a doubt.<br><br>
This ignorant couple at the next table has no clue what they are suggesting. Rabbit food... Please! Where do they think the cattle, and poultry, and pigs (and rabbits presumably) they eat get their protein from? <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/no.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":no:"> duh! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/whack.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":whack:"> From grains and such <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/mad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":mad:"><br><br>
Heaven knows what else they'd subject her to if they had a chance.

I love this show...we'll be sure to watch tonight! Although I doubt people will step in unless they filmed this in a place with a lot of vegans and vegetarians.

Hell yeah, I'd intervene. I'd remind the girl to <i>never</i> accept food from strangers and admonish the couple that without knowing the reasons for a vegan diet, they may very well be endangering the life of the child. No brainer.

I would wait with the child until her mom came back and tell the adults to back off. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)">

Is it on tonight? I saw that there's an episode of WWYD at 9pm my time but the caption on the t.v. said it was about something to do at a bakery. I set that episode to record on the dvr incase there's more than one WWYD scenario in an episode. (I've never watched it before.)

replace just the word "hot dog" with other questionable things and the conversation (with eyes closed) could sound like some kind of drug dealer or pedo-kidnapper! It's rather creepy how they were insisting on it...if I didn't know they were actors, I'd be like skcnaskfchynaklsdfchnlksadfcyhnqilAKSCHX

The way they casted and costumed the vegan mother was kind of disappointing. They made her look like a stereotypical veg/hippy lady: pale skin, dark hair, that weird headband, thick rim glasses, really long dress, etc. Very briefly in the last clip it's even worse: narly hippy hair, drab colors, some environmental type t shirt underneath an oversized coat, what looks like a neclace with sea shells on it, a messenger bag. She was also kind of obnoxious.<br><br><br><div class="quote-container"><span>Quote:</span>

You know those were actors, right? At the end of the clip they reveal that the woman is actually a vegetarian as well.

So they put out the full episode and that actually cheered me up a bit. I thought the costumers would be more against vegetarianism but they ended up really great.

Yes, AlainWinthrope, I know they were actors. Sadly, I've met people IRL(haven't we all?) who were just as bad and it always gets my dander up just thinking about how such insinuate themselves in a situation that wasn't their concern in the first place(picking on a child left alone for a scant moment). Geez!<br><br>
Ok I'm going to take a deep breath and calm down now. Sorry for the rant.

The only thing I wish they would have done is devote one of the "info boxes" they pop up (i.e. the famous vegans one) to listing some good sources of plant-based protein, after the actor made the comment that the little girl "gets absolutely no protein." We all know that is not true, but there are probably some omnis out there watching who think it is true, and the actor was only perpetuating that. Knowledge is power.
