GREGGS BAKERY | Cause outrage by replacing Jesus in nativity scene with a sausage roll!

Recommended Posts

Well...... :(  ...Bad tasting sausage roll.... But they are all doing it.... No respect anymore. Corruption of concepts!

Greggs released the images to promote their advent calendar but they were met with immediate backlash when they chose to use the Three Wise Men surrounding the pastry rather than baby Jesus.

What was reportedly meant to be a light-hearted stunt quickly backfired when social media users slammed the bakery, pointing out that their take on the 2000-year-old nativity scene could cause further offence given Jesus was Jewish and eating pork is forbidden in the Jewish faith.

The chain faced further boycott calls from the chief executive of the Freedom Association Simon Richards, who claimed the product was “sick” and insulted Christianity in a way it would “never dare” other religions.
