The revenge cookout that was planned to protest an Australian vegan who took her neighbors to court over the smell of meat wafting from their BBQ has been canceled.
The carnivores on Thursday nixed the cookout organized outside Cilla Carden’s home in Perth after her lawyer threatened the event, 10Daily News reported.
More than 3,000 people had planned to attend the Oct. 19 cookout advertised on Facebook as an event to “help Cilla Carden GET SOME PORK ON HER FORK.”
“Don’t let Cilla destroy a good old Aussie tradition,” the event description read.
But Carden’s lawyer took to the event to warn attendees charges would be filed against them if the barbecue spilled out on her property, News.com.au reported.
“Any person who seeks to attend Ms. Carden’s property on Saturday October 19, 2019 or at any other time in relation to this event or matter will be referred to the WA police on the ground of trespass,” her attorney, John Hammond, wrote on the event page.
Soon after, the organizer, Bailey Mason, announced that he was canceling the event over concerns about trespassing.
“As many of you know this event has far too many logistical concerns to actually come to fruition, and we do not condone the harassment of Mrs. Carden or the trespass onto her land,” he wrote on Facebook.
Carden’s lawyer said he and his client were thrilled that the ardent carnivores aren’t going ahead with their event.
“I’m very relieved, and it was a very unnecessary action to take,” Hammond told 10Daily News.
Carden’s has been locked in a legal battle with her neighbors that started last year. Her complaints sparked outrage this week after she claimed that the smells wafting from their barbecue were ruining her quality of life.
