Singer and long-time vegan Chloe Bailey has revealed she was left in tears after accidentally eating meat for the first time in a decade when a hotel messed up a burger order for her and her Little Mermaid star sister Halle.
The hitmaker and her sister, Halle Bailey, both decided to cut meat from their diet over 10 years ago and have been open about their choice to practice veganism through the rise of their careers.
However, their avoidance of meat was derailed over the weekend before they made their way to see their mentor Beyoncé perform in Atlanta after their order was placed incorrectly by hotel staff.
Taking to TikTok to share the story with fans, Chloe began: ‘So I called to get a Beyond burger for sis and I like usual. Specified that it’s vegan, no butter on the bun, nothing like that.’

The Have Mercy singer was in the shower when the burgers arrived, and was immediately questioned by her younger sibling when she returned to the bedroom.
She continued: ‘She’s eating the burger and she’s like, “Are you sure this is Beyond?” She took a couple of bites and she said, “This is really good, you sure it’s Beyond?”’
Chloe stressed that she had ordered the vegan option: ‘I touched the patty and smelled it and was like, “Of course, it’s Beyond, yeah”.
However, she soon realized an error had been made as she continued: ‘So I finish getting dressed, I take a bite and the juice dripping from the burger is not like a Beyond burger. I just knew it was not a fake burger.
‘The one bite I took and I just knew. Immediately I said, “This doesn’t feel right”.’
The Body Do hitmaker immediately rang the hotel’s front desk to try and confirm whether they had ordered the right meal.
She recalled: ‘I said, “Ugh, these are vegan burgers right?” He said, “No, they’re brand burgers”. I said, “Brand burgers? I said Beyond burgers.” I don’t even know what a brand burger is.’
Naturally, the star was not pleased to learn such a costly mistake had been made as she continued: ‘Immediately I’m losing my s***. I gobbled down a whole can of Sprite.

The incident happened when Chloe and sister Halle went to see their mentor Beyoncé perform in Atlanta on August 12
‘Halle’s laughing at me because I’m crying. This is right before the concert yesterday. I’m crying, Halle’s just laughing so hard at me because I’m freaking out.’
The singer lamented about the fact she had managed not to consumed ‘any red meat’ for 10 years before the incident.
Her explanation was shared online and immediately prompted sympathy from fans and fellow vegans.
One fans commented: ‘If I put 10 years into something and someone’s mistake jeopardizes that, I’d be p***ed….’
Another wrote: ‘I’m vegetarian and it’s definitely hard to tell the difference sometimes but you know the taste of real meat and that stomach ache ain’t no joke.’
‘Her crying over that is valid! If you go 10 years without eating meat that’s a self accomplishment and she stands for something ppl who stand for nothing may see this as dramatic but u gotta see it from her view [sic]’, one person mused.

Halle, 23, previously explained that they ditched meat for a fully vegan diet after their mother decided to test out the dietary choice
‘If a person dnt drink liquor in 10 years and a waiter puts tequila in their drink are they not allowed to b p***ed, that’s her body’.
The Little Mermaid star Halle, 23, previously explained why she and Chloe ditched meat for a fully vegan diet in their younger years.
Speaking to Complex in 2017, the Disney star stated: ‘Being vegan started from our mother. One day she was like, “I’m gonna try to be vegetarian for a week. You can join me if you’d like.” We started the week with her and just never went back.’
Meanwhile, Halle was recently named one of Peta’s most beautiful vegan celebrities in the world.
