A vegan contestant on British TV show First Dates has been slammed by viewers after he accused his partner of 'eating [his] friends'.

Singleton Hari, who was looking for love on Channel 4 last night, has been dubbed a 'condescending vegan guy' and a 'rude t**t' by the audience, which believed he was 'bullying' his date for ordering a fish stew.

'Guilty'

After the waiter brought his date, Rachel, the fish-containing dish, the 21-year-old said: "I can smell the fish and that's minging. 

"You're eating nice little fishies. Don't you feel guilty? I feel guilty... I feel guilty for you.

"You've killed my friends..." 

Friends

Rachel replied: "I don't think you should make other people feel guilty about it."

"You've got to make them feel a little bit guilty. Aren't you?," Hari asked.

"But if they get put off of their food...," his date responded.

Hari concluded: "You shouldn't eat my friends."

Resolve

The vegan constestant, who has admitted he was a 'kn**head' on the show, explained his behavior: "Everything that I ever feel I just say.

"I feel like if you can express yourself, you can be yourself."

Later, Rachel told him she didn't feel there was a spark between them - and he brought up the fish again.
