This is from April of last year but is definitely of note. PETA pitched banana peel as an alternative to pulled pork as per a recipe from Melissa Copeland (aka The Skinny Vegan). Some food lovers online decided to have a little fund at PETA’s expense, and the results were hilarious!
Foodies mercilessly troll PETA for promoting BANANA SKIN as an
alternative to pulled pork – saying the dish looks just like ‘tapeworm’

Animal rights organisation PETA has been mercilessly trolled on social media for promoting an unusual recipe by a vegan blogger.
She explained that the idea is based on a Venezuelan technique, and PETA was inspired to retweet Melissa’s recipe, along with other ways banana skin can be used as a meat alternative.
However, the thread received a flood of negative comments with one comparing Melissa’s ‘pulled pork’ sandwich to ‘tapeworm’.
Another wrote: ‘If being vegan is so awesome, why are they always trying to make “meat substitutes”? Stop appropriating my food and come up with your own.’
