Australian lamb ad causes outrage for featuring vegetarian Hindu god

TwitterFacebook

A new ad promoting Australian lamb has caused a strong reaction from the Australian Indian and Hindu communities, for the representation of deity Ganesha encouraging the eating of lamb.

Released on Monday, Meat and Livestock Australia’s new spring ad brings the world’s religious figures together for a casual barbecue — serving lamb, of course.

Guest include Jesus, Moses, Zeus, Buddha and Scientology founder L. Ron Hubbard, along with Hindu god Ganesha. Unfortunately for MLA, Ganesha is known as vegetarian, which contradicts the campaign’s key message: “Lamb, the meat we can all eat.”

So the Hindu community in Australia is outraged by this ad. Of course. Tbf it is offensive if Ganesha is God to you https://t.co/tuyP53OwRT
