An owner of a vegan food truck regrets a Facebook post she wrote in which she seemed to dismiss the deaths of "meat eaters" in the Las Vegas mass shooting. The 60-year-old Delinda Jensen, a former adjunct professor of Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania, claimed to have received death threats after her Facebook post went viral on Monday. She has since closed down her business.

On Facebook, Jensen wrote:  "Yes I am jaded. Fifty nine meat eaters dead. How many animals will live because of this?"  Moreover, in another comment, Jensen used a vulgar term to say that she does not like "carnists."

Jensen said her remark was "a moment of stupidity." In an interview with the Times Leader newspaper in Wilkes-Barre, Jensen said she was sorry about writing the remark, and claimed, "Meat eaters or not, no one deserves to die like that. I wasn't celebrating the death of those people." She also claimed that she was attempting to make the point that animals are not only tortured, but are killed unnecessarily for meat.

Jense, after becoming a vegan, began the Mother Nature Vegan Cuisine food business with her son.  She has deactivated her Facebook account, hidden her food truck, put her website offline, and canceled her bookings. She and her son claim that people have driven by their home to shout threats and obscenities. She has installed a security camera at her home, and has called police several times out of fear for their safety
