Hindus get lamb ad ban as advertising watchdog does backflip

CALL it a lamb ban. A backflip on the backstrap.

Lamb may well be the meat to eat this Spring, but you won’t be watching any more of one particular ad about it.

The Meat and Livestock Corporation’s (MLA) latest offering, featuring a range of religious gods, deities and prophets has been has been banned.

      Mo’s busy in Hell with his buddy Shaytan.

        As per usual….

      Hey, they might lack judgment but they aren’t crazy enough to show the muslim prophet Mohammad onscreen. The ad company likes its premises and its employees have family they have to consider too. They’ve seen what happened at the Charlie Hebdo offices when you depict Mohammad.

    I’m a Christian and I’m insulted too.

    • Justin St.Denis

      That is because the people behind the concept of this ad so disrespect people of faith in general. Their very rational fear of including Mohammad and thereby pissing off Muslims shines through, though, so you know the disrespect towards people of faith is very conscious on their part.

      You feel insulted because you have just been insulted.

    The western governments (liberals/democrats & all) have opened the pandora’s box of multiculturalism, it’s humanly impossible to appease every culture, religion & individual on this earth.

    OMFG (pun intended) Why can’t people shut their f*cking pie holes and let inconsequential things like this ad to just run its course.
    Whine, whine, bitch and bellyache. How about minding your own business and try being a plus to society…for a change.
