Piers Morgan‘s TalkTV present has been flooded with complaints following a somewhat intense interview on veganism.
The infamously antagonistic presenter welcomed Animal Riot’s Orla Coghlan to debate organisation’s demonstration against the dairy industry – which noticed faux pints of milk get thrown on the gates of Large Ben.
After making an attempt to derail the talk by equating animal agriculture to the manufacturing of avocados and almonds – Piers introduced: “Anyway, look. I’m ravenous”.
Then, a supply man appeared onto the TV set with a McDonald’s supply bag – that includes a Large Mac burger that Piers scoffed down on in entrance of Orla.
According to reports, Ofcom, the UK’s broadcast media regulator, obtained a whopping 123 complaints from viewers and confirmed such complaints associated to the vegan debate.
Piers Morgan’s anti-vegan rants
Piers usually depends on garish techniques to try to goal vegans. Final yr, when Animal Riot urged McDonald’s to go plant-based, the celeb threatened to exit and purchase 1,000 Large Macs in response.
He additionally dubbed the McDonald’s vegan burger, generally known as the McPlant, as ‘complete nonsense’.
Showing on This Morning, he argued: “Look it up within the dictionary, a burger is a meat product, so is a sausage. Why do vegans need to use our language?”
