Vegetarian Actress Honey Lee Caught Eating Meat on Air! Raises Moral and Ethical Questions

Actress Honey Lee has been under fire for her “lying” on air. Last month, the former Miss Korea made a guest appearance on OnStyle’sLee Hyori’s Golden 12” and revealed that she had been following a pesco-vegetarian diet for past nine years. She stated, “It’s been about nine years since I became a vegetarian.”

However, keen netizens were able to dig up a clip of Honey Lee eating meat. In 2010, she starred in Olive TV’sShe’s Olive – My Sweet Canada,” where she traveled throughout Canada, meeting people and enjoying the local culture. During the segment, she was captured deliciously eating on various meaty dishes. As such, netizens began criticizing the celebrity, commenting, “Vegetarian? Please. How can she be a meat-eating vegetarian?”

Honey Lee’s management agency clarified, “Honey Lee was indeed a vegetarian at the time. She had no idea that the program involved eating meat. She found out once she got to Canada, and she was placed in a tough situation. However, due to issues with sponsors, there was no way she could cancel the show. As such, she put on a show in a way that worked with the program.” He continued, “Honey’s friend accompanied her on the trip. So, after receiving approval from the producers, her friend tasted the food, evaluated them, and explained to Honey as to what she should say. As for Honey eating the meat, she spit them out as soon as the camera captured the shot it needed. Having stuck to the vegetarian diet, she was repulsed chewing on the meat. However, due to the circumstances, she did what she could. It’s very unfortunate that his has belatedly become such an issue.”

Despite the “explanation,” many netizens expressed their disapproval toward Honey Lee and raised questions as to whether such reality tv shows were ethical.

It's very hard for some vegetarians and vegans to make themselves not eat(or need) meat. My cousin has been (trying to be) a vegan for a few years now, but sometimes she cracks.

You just have to completely forbid yourself for 6 months, the time your body adapts well, and the need is completely gone.
Personnally, now meat disgusts me.
I promised myself once I get rich I would eat meat again but only from rearing free-range chickens/etc, but right now, I can' ttell you if I would ever be able to eat meat again.

yes I agree, it's takes a long time of self discipline. If you don't have the need to eat meat anymore, that's great for you dear. You accomplished your goal.

but tbh I don' think I would survive without any meat lol When I was growing up that's all I ate. Today I can't stand most fruits and veggies :( I try to eat them, but the tastes disgusts me. It sucks.
