People Are Boycotting A Bakery Over Their Nativity Scene!

To some Brits, sausage rolls are the holy grail of fast foods. But when it comes to one literally replacing baby Jesus, not everyone is on board. British bakery chain Greggs had to apologize this week after an ad ran showing a nativity scene that depicted the three wise men standing around a sausage roll (with a bite taken out of it, for what it's worth), instead of Jesus.


"We're really sorry to have caused any offence, this was never our intention,"

the store told The Northern Echo.

The ad in question was meant to promote Greggs' first-ever "Merry Greggsmas" advent calendar, which has coupons, food vouchers, and gift cards for each day throughout December.

Some people called for a boycott of the store, including Simon Richards, who referred to the ad as "sick" and insulting. Richards is the CEO of The Freedom Association, and according to his Twitter is now buying sausage rolls from Marks and Spencer.


Others found the ad humorous, including a few who pointed out what happens when you try and say "Jesus" backwards (relevant, try it).


I personally find it hilarious! What are your thoughts?
