I know most vegans refrain from using leather because they are vegan for animal rights reasons. But if the person went vegan for health reasons, the boots wouldn't matter. I mean, presumably she doesn't eat her boots.

I wasn't talking about humiliating by correcting, I was talking about humiliating by fat shaming someone trying to better themselves. At the time I commented, this was in 'almost fmls' and it most certainly did not say FML. It was also edited in wording and grammer when it got to this section.

I was not referring to the correcting, I was referring to the fat-shaming. There was no need to point out that she weighs 350 pounds to make the post, that was just mean for no reason. Also, when I originally commented, this was in 'almost fmls' and there most certainly was not an 'FML' at the end, but obviously that has since been changed.

Or maybe she purchases the boots pre-vegan & decided to continue wearing them? Throwing them away wouldn't bring back the animal's life, she may as well get use out of them.

You can be a Vegan for health reasons and not morality reasons. Most people do both, but not everyone. While I have friends who are Vegan who won't use products made with animals, I also have several who don't care. They were overweight and wanted to be healthier. Magician Penn Jillette is a good famous example of this. He read "Eat to live" went on a Vegan diet, lost over 100lbs, and will still use products made from animals.

Being a nutritionist is meaningless: it's an unprotected term. Anyone can call themselves a nutritionist, so no place for you to call her out on not being a vegan. The protected term is dietician by the way.

You don't have to be a dietitian to know what a vegan is. Besides, it's not like he just randomly went up to her and started talking about her lifestyle. She told him that she's vegan and he pointed out her mistake.

The OP's profession is irrelevant ... the fact is the person being described is neither a vegan nor does she practice a vegan diet. That is a simple fact and does not require a registered dietician to be able to call her out on his misinformation.
