I've never come across it.
I suspect that, actually, they don't call people who eat meat anything - at least not to their faces. People post all kinds of offensive and/or stupid comments whilst being protected by anonymity.
Why would anyone call a non-vegetarian a "rapist"? Hard to say - ignorance, stupidity or just a desire to be rude. Maybe "rapist" is the nastiest word they can think of. Years ago someone on YA called me a "fat paedophile" because he didn't like my answer to his, rather silly, question.
