New Aussie Lamb Ad Under Fire For Offence To Hindus
Meat and Livestock Australia are no strangers to ruffling a few feathers when it comes to their advertising campaigns.
Their latest campaign “You Never Lamb Alone” depicts several religious figures at an outdoor barbecue including Jesus, Ganesha, Aphrodite, L Ron Hubbard and Moses. At the end of the meal they all toast together, "What about we toast to lamb, the meat we can all eat?"
However Hindu group Rajan Zen has begun lobbying for the ad's removal, citing it as "disrespectful" because Ganesha is a vegetarian and does not eat meat.
Some Muslim viewers have also taken offence to the exclusion of Islam founder Mohammad, who was apparently at "daycare pick up" during the meal.
