(Newser) – An Australian bride's line when it came to wedding invitations—"No murderers"—apparently didn't go over well on Facebook. According to Australia's News Network, the unidentified vegan banned meat-eating family members from her wedding and got slammed for it: "When your 'family' tries to guilt trip you into letting them come to your fully vegan wedding, even though they're omnivores," the Aussie wrote Tuesday along with two laughing emojis on a vegan Facebook group. "Just for some context, some family members were told they are not invited to my wedding because we don't want to host murderers. Our wedding is supposed to be one of the happiest days of our lives."

Now, the responses: "As a vegan, this is messed up … you can't go around calling your family murderers!" one user apparently wrote. "She is out of her mind. I'd be happy to cut her off of my life if I were the family." Others called her "ridiculous" or criticized her for missing an opportunity to "prove that vegan food can be just as delicious as omnivore food." In her defense, the bride says she didn't want "the weight of having people that still kill animals" on her conscience: "...I am not compromising the ethics that I share with everyone here." No names or links are available, but Yahoo Finance, the Sun and Metro are among those running the story along with apparent screenshots of the Facebook posts. (One vegan's mom made meat sauce. It didn't go over well.)
