Waitrose Food: Editor William Sitwell resigns over 'killing vegans' row
The editor of Waitrose Food magazine, William Sitwell, is standing down with immediate effect after suggesting a series on "Killing vegans, one by one". Waitrose said: "William's email absolutely doesn't represent our views about vegans and vegan food." In a statement, Waitrose said they'd been told by the company which produces the food magazine that Sitwell was leaving the post. Sitwell had emailed back 10 minutes later, saying: "Thanks for this. How about a series on killing vegans, one by one. Ways to trap them? How to interrogate them properly? Expose their hypocrisy? Force-feed them meat?". Waitrose said at the time that even though it was a private email, "William's gone too far" and that his words were "Extremely inappropriate".
