According to Buzzfeed, a screening of the Adult Swim series Rick and Morty at a vegan cafe in the country of Georgia was interrupted on Sunday when a group of neo-fascist skinheads entered and began throwing grilled meat, sausages and fish inside.

“It all started when they came into the cafe speaking and laughing loudly and didn’t care when we asked them to be quiet and not to disturb the people who came to watch the film,” wrote Tbilisi’s Kiwi-Cafe on Facebook. “Continuing to act loudly and disturbingly, they pulled out some grilled meat, sausages, fish and started eating them and throwing them at us, and finally they started to smoke.”

When the cafe asked the skinheads to leave, the alleged members of the far-right “Bergmann movement” refused and soon a scuffle broke out. From Deutsche Welle:

Kiwi cafe said that the neo-Nazis had been asking neighbors about them for weeks, and whether it was a haven for the LGBT community, punks and foreigners. According to their statement, the vegan restaurant had already been the target of neighborhood ire because of “the way we look, music that we listen to, ideas we support, and the fact that we don’t eat meat.”

The cafe claimed this attitude led locals to join the neo-Nazis when a brawl broke out. The police were called, but the crowd had dispersed by the time they arrived. The officers themselves were also aggressive, the statement said, and they even took in some cafe staff for questioning.

“[When the] police finally showed up, one of policemen was very aggressive, pushed us, yelled with anger, said that we are guilty of what had happened,” wrote the Kiwi-Cafe. “Some of café workers were brought to police office for interrogation.”

According to EurasiaNet, Georgian Power, a youth nationalist group, denied being involved on Facebook.

“Forcing meat upon vegetarians is not our priority,” wrote Georgian Power.
