Vegan oxtail? Twitter says the fake meat movement may have gone too far

Sure, there are burgers made of beets and chicken wings that never belong to a living creature. Now there's a new vegetable-based Franken-food that has folks wondering: What were they thinking?
Two words: vegan oxtail.
For those unfamiliar, this is a West Indian and sometimes Southern delicacy. And no, it's not really the tail of an ox. (Though it originally came from oxen, today's oxtail comes from the tail end of cattle.)
After a picture of the product, made by a company called Absolute Vegetarian, began making the rounds on social media, there were howls of outrage from Facebook to Twitter.
"There’s no possible way you can make vegan oxtail! It’s just not possible,'' one Twitter user wrote.
