We all love a BBQ, don’t we? But what would you do if someone told you to put yours out because they were offended by the smell?

There’s a video of just this incident doing the rounds on TikTok, and it’s safe to say it has got people talking…

In the clip, re-shared by meme account @brandz100, a woman can be seen barbecuing a hefty amount of meat in what appears to be a shared garden.

But she’s interrupted by a neighbour appearing, and asking her to stop.

“So this is meat?,” the neighbour is heard asking in the video.

When she gets confirmation, she responds: “We’re vegans, we can’t have meat smoke coming into our [home]. We’re gonna speak to the landlord.”

“Do you wanna try some?,” the BBQing TikToker replies (granted, perhaps not the most sensitive of replies…)

To which the neighbour exclaims: “No I don’t! That is murder. You are murderers!”

Yikes.

You can watch the clip below: 

They then walk off saying they’re gonna call someone, although we don’t hear who. Maybe the landlord, maybe the cops… either way, we’re not sure they’d do much about this one.

“I’m literally in tears,” the original sharer of the video wrote, alongside a bunch of laughing emojis.

Reacting in the comments, many people were quick to claim the neighbour’s reaction was a little extreme.

“That smoke prolly smells good, sis is fighting carnivorous thoughts,” joked one.

Whilst another wrote: “Who she gone call… ghostbusters?”

Sharing the video on Twitter, another person wrote: “She can’t be serious.”

“Wait, doesn’t she understand that air has literally touched things many many many many many many many many many many many many millions of years many times?,” someone else wrote.

“Pretty sure the air you breathe, it’s been expelled from an animal at some point. Landlords can’t control air quality.”

“I’ve heard about people like this but I never met them before,” a fellow Twitter user chimed in.

Obviously, everyone has their own boundaries when it comes to veganism, and that’s okay, and we can understand not wanting to smell meat if you didn’t eat.

But would you go as far as asking your neighbours to stop cooking? It’s a controversial one, to say the least…
