PETA responds to “insensitive” beef joke at supermarket
Woolworths has come under fire over a joke about beef.
The meat section of the supermarket in Glenelg displayed the line: What do you call a cow with no legs? Ground beef.
But shopper Lesley Millward took issue with the joke, posting on the Woolworths Facebook page that is was “disrespectful” and “insensitive”.
Laura Weyman-Jones from PETA told Tom Elliott she’s glad it started a conversation.
“It’s really sad that anecdotes about animal abuse are normal,” Ms Weyman-Jones said.
“Unfortunately there is no ethical way to kill an animal for food.
“If you stepped into a slaughterhouse today, I very much doubt you would consider what’s happening to these animals to be ‘ethical’.”
