In this exclusive video, high profile vegan activist sits down with PBN's Klaus Mitchell, and talks about his recent controversial media appearances.
The campaigner, who has recently appeared on mainstream television and radio, has been accused of being 'militant' - despite advocating for a peaceful form of activism.
During a recent appearance on breakfast show This Morning, Carbstrong talked about artificial insemination as a form of sexual abuse, as animals are unable to give consent.
The farmer said he was offended by the accusation.
Carbstrong says: "The farmer was more offended by me explaining what he does than actually doing it. He never actually gave any justification for what he did."
