Today is a holiday, my friend post the dinner on the social media, I want to comment to celebrate their happy life.

But I see the fish and beef in the pictures, I don't know how to comment, because in Buddhism there is banned to eat meat. They are not Buddhist scholars. They are not Buddhist at all.

    Meat is banned in Buddhism, what’s the source ?

    Voting to close this question as it is based on a faulty premise and there are already plenty of questions on this site which deal with meat and Buddhism

    I don't understand the question. You "wanted to comment to celebrate" so why don't you? Did you know they eat meat or did you just discover that from their Facebook post? You say "they're not Buddhist scholars" ... are they Buddhist at all, do you think they want to know (or to be told) about Buddhist doctrine?

Are the Buddhist themselves? And if they are, are they one of the traditions which ban eating of meat for lay people (of which there are a few)? If you yourself don’t eat meat, then when you comment, simply don’t mention the food and rather focus on them.
