VPRO Metropolis : Hello to you VPRO Metropolis fans! So, do you eat raw meat? Do you eat #meat at all? Or are you #vegan? Would you share your opinion about meat with us? See you next week for a new video on VPRO Metropolis!

Benny D : I'm proudly Ethiopian but I don't eat raw meat. I prefer mine cooked! But some ignorant people will always post stupid comments such as this is 'cannibalism' etc... The world is diverse and Ethiopia is one of the most culturally rich countries on the globe so before posting an ignorant comments, try to understand the history of that nation😉

Reason&Faith : I do not want to impede on others cultures, but I'll pass on the raw meat and have my halaal meat well done and seasoned. Lol. Peace.

Sunny Heartbreak : PEOPLE got the NERVE to JUDGE cultural cuisines from the OLDEST NATION in the WORLD! but then TURN AROUND and eat a STEAK just as RAW but seared for 5 seconds to FOOL THEMSELVES its cooked lol. PUT SOME RESPECT on ETHIOPIA NAME !

Harihara Sarma : Each guy is having two-two knives with him while eating and drinking. Any argument, there will be a blood bath.

Cool Dude : So what? People eat sushi it's raw fish.. I don't see any difference raw meat is raw fish or beef

Pulp Fiction : its not extreme , do you know tartare?? its common in Italy to

Lisa C. Curvello : For all those desinformed comments talking about parasites: Have you heard about carpaccio or steak tartare? Hello?

song : Amharic is one of my favorite languages

YouKube : The guy that does most of the talking here. Every time he ends his sentence his voice cracks and it sounds he's still going through puberty... Lol.

IamShe : Omg... I guess their bodies build up tolerance. I hate the smell of raw meat so I don't see how they can do it.

tom tom : I prefer eating mine a little more raw and fresher. When I see a cow, I just jump on his back (like a lion) and bite hard into his neck. Then I like to enjoy eating the cow fresh in the field. Delicious.

desertflwrs : Ethiopian beef is organic and these guys have eaten it their whole lives ok, I wouldn’t try it in the U.S. though

LaceRedRose : I think if you start eating it while you're young your body you can tolerate it better

BaShhhka Bashhh : They have been forced to eat raw meat by somalia in 1977 Ogadenia War when somalia conquered most of Habasha land to save Eritrea and minor communities from Amhara. That was long time ago. I hope they will stop eating raw meat which hosts bacteria,viruses and other dangerous micro organisms that need to be boiled in order to denature them. The war has ended and now you have fire to cook it why don't you cook it?

jj jkj : NO Ethiopian has an answer to the question of why they eat meat raw, no one. But I heard that, this is the result of wars. They were not able to put on fire in the evening for fearing that the fire could lead their enemies(Ahmed Gurey..or the left-handed Ahmed. a leader who occupied and ruled this area between 1400 -1500 ) to their positions, where they were hiding and so it went until they claim that,this is their tradition after 500 years. liars!

Frank White : Relax people I worked as a sous chef for years in a big city .White people upper class people eat raw meat all the time in public. Thanks asked for blue steak.some just keep denying it back and till u just put it on a plate right out the cooler

Ray Mak : I would really really love to have a chance to try some

Shing Fung Tse : Well, it is not uncommon to eat raw food, Japanese have sashimi, Italian have tartare, so raw beef is not really a surprise.

Johan Michael : That slight pitch at every end of a sentence that guy makes is endearingly funny.

Sir Burhaan : Somali sultanate Forced to eat row 16th century.

Beth g : Soo for all the confused people. No Ethiopia is not starting the famine ended in 1985. Meat is eaten like this becase it's our culture like how Japanese people eat raw fish on sushi or Americans eat rare steak or raw oysters. Also Somalians never forced us to raw meat.

SmallGirl_VS_BigMountains : Very paleo....I wonder if they have tape worms though...???

sherry gwaltney : To each his own !.. l’m gagging right now... So how are your parasites coming along?????🤢🤮

Shin Min : as we all know the region of Ethiopia back then was the Cradle of civilization. and all of our ancestors came from that region.

niya that giiirl : dude. these people are beautiful omg 😩

Cry Baby : How is this wierd at all? I'm Canadian and eat raw meat in various forms, such as sushi, tartare, rare steak stays red in the middle.... I wouldn't eat chicken or pork raw but doesn't look like they do either.

Plane Jane : I ate Doro Wot, and Kitfo recently and it was delicious! The waiter tried to get me to eat something more for the American palate, but I refused. I will be eating it more often, I loved it.

Femi Adewunmi : You guys are bunch of cannibals

ayan Nuur : EWWW dirty habish.

The Real Reason : RAW AF

windmill1965 : Raw beef in Ethiopia, raw horse meat in Japan (basashi).

Hou'eiki Akoteu : To anybody thinking this is unnatural, every ethnicity has or does this. Do not judge

Kaja Mydeen : cannibals

John Doe : The mustard and lemon juice helps to kill bacteria. We cook our ceviche that way we put shrimp or fish raw in lemon juice and some spice and let it marinate for a couple of hours and it is delicious!

misbah abdus salaam : Cannibalism at its peak

Wadjet : *it's not like they don't know better🙄*

Bekele Daba : These shameless nomad Zoomali trolls are all over on any Ethiopian video. They feel good whenever they comment negatively about Ethiopia. They cant even keep their country together.

Bongo Head : raw beef is actually delicious. you guys never had carpaccio tartar or sashimi?

mike A : All a know next time you going to eat your friend

Mimo Vids : How to get salmonella in 3 minutes...

Private Account : look delicious I don't see why u guy must hating on them it's their business for eating raw meat it's not like they force u to eat raw meat or anything if they die from bacteria it's their problem but u guy saying mean things to them like u going to their funeral when their die or something so stop hating these people don't do anything to u well unless eating raw meat if u don't like the video skip it n keep ur opinion to urself

Abdullahi Muktar Abdikadir : It is started in 15 centry, during adal abyssinia war.

Anamika Limnoo Subba : Cannibals. How could u consume raw smelly meat. U people are no better than animals. Im vomiting seeing this nonsense.😭😭😭


Aisha Riyaah : i dont see any problem at all,we all human being with differents country,cultural,religions,foods,languages,thats it..nothing will change😊love to ethiopians from bangladesh,living south africa❤

Wubneh Tessema : Traditionally, it's supposed to be large, freshly cut portions of steak and not just any-type of raw meat that they ate. This is considered a delicacy among Christian Abyssinians who begin this culture sometime in the middle-ages. It wasn't originally done by all Ethiopians until these modern-times too! The Ethiopian Jews, who were deemed possessed by the evil 'buda' and were falsely reported to transform into hyenas at night, would've found it impossible to eat this and the consumption of 'birrundo or brundo" was considered as plain savagery by them!

MEN 101 : Sv3rige was here

Ilaise Heaven : I am really surprised about the comments. In Europe, France people love to it "Steak tartare with an uncooked egg on it and French fries... The steak is raw so for the egg and no one is critizing their habits. Once people eat raw meat in Africa Ethiopia the comments are full of disrespect. I mean, I will never eat raw food but damn people! If you are disgusted by this video go watch something else, no one force you to keep watching.
