Cilla Carden, a vegan, received major national attention after she took her neighbors to court over the smell of meat being barbecued in their own backyard. According to court documents, Carden filed a claim that the smell of the meat her neighbors cooked destroyed her quality of life.
After the case went public, thousands of people began to make plans with one another to meet outside Carden’s home and have a massive meat-loving cookout. The event is being organized on Facebook under a page called “Community BBQ for Cilla Carden” and is scheduled for October 19th. Although Carden’s claim and appeal were both tossed out by the court, she continues to state that she will not give up her fight to have a life free of smelling cooked meat.
