Parents have slammed a café for using Peppa Pig to help sell its bacon sandwiches, reports Edinburgh Live.
Gordon Street Café, in Edinburgh city centre, reportedly promoted the meal with a chalkboard sign of the cartoon character, smiling alongside a plus sign and two slices of bread.
Many people have taken to social media and branded the move ‘insensitive’.
Watch as a vegetarian diet for kids is debated in the clip below…
One mum wrote: “Even if you are not vegan or vegetarian that could be really upsetting. My kids would be absolutely traumatised if they saw that sign, it’s really not funny.”
Another added: “That’s going to make a lot of children question food. I support that but damn this is pretty sick.”
“That is horrid,” a third penned. “Every kid would be upset by this – like come on, cartoon animals! Animals are bad enough without ruining the kid’s mind too!”
At the time of writing, the café is yet to publically comment on the backlash.
However, a photo has been shared on the business’ Instagram page.
It shows a chalkboard sign that reads: “This world is a magical place full of people waiting to be offended by something.”
Recently, another eatery faced scrutiny when it displayed a series of offensive signs.
The London coffee shop, F*ckoffee, displayed a sign that stated: “Sorry, no fatties.”
Alongside the ‘fatphobia’ poster, another read: “This is the longest that something made in China has ever lasted.”
Since then, the owners have responded to the backlash and insisted it’s all a part of a ‘dark humour’ and shouldn’t be taken seriously.
