John Dutton Drops Some Hard Truths On Vegans: “You Kill Everything On The Ground & Under It”

John Dutton Yellowstone


The patriarch of the Yellowstone empire, the wise and powerful John Dutton (Kevin Costner) dropped a truth bomb on new character Summer Higgins (Piper Perabo), back in Episode 5 of Season 4.

Summer was causing a ruckus, protesting farmers, ranchers, the death of animals, and meat production’s destruction the environment… you know, your day-to-day tree hugger bullshit, when John explained to her the real price of being a vegan.

It was quite the mic drop moment:

His words actually echo something that Ted Nugent said on an episode of the Joe Rogan Experience Podcast a few years back.

Of course, large-scale cattle and hog operations require a whole lot of corn and grain farming to feed the livestock, thus killing the critters in the field as well.

However, ranchers aren’t the self-righteous folks shaming people for eating meat, while conveniently ignoring the all death and destruction their tofu burgers cause.
