5 hilarious responses to one man’s outrage about halal bread
Warburtons have added a halal certification sign to their bread packaging, causing almost as much of an outcry as Gregg’s have kicked off by releasing a vegan steak bake.
The labelling now sits alongside symbols that show the bread is kosher and vegetarian-friendly, but those things don’t seem to have upset people quite as much, which is an absolute mystery.
A perfect example of the response is this hot take from someone controversially named @people_paul – a self-declared supporter of Trump, Johnson and Brexit, who claims to be “talking common sense to a messed up world”.
#uk #brexit #conservatives Warburtons bread is now HALAL certified- why do 96% of population have to have Islamic Halal put onto them in their lives & effectively overriding their own religions just because 4% want it? pic.twitter.com/r6bjA7QZe2

His tweet certainly attracted a lot of attention, much of it along the lines of out-and-out mockery. These five comments particularly stood out.
I can't sleep. The Halal bread is haunting my dreams. All I can do is cry thinking about those poor gluten molded by oppression of Sharia law into the perfect texture of soft inside but crispy outside.

I'm more concerned by the use of VEGAN ingredients and outraged by Warburtons putting LOVE into their dough. Sick bread-making bastards! Paul, promise me after brexit we can have proper British bread made with MEAT and HATE. pic.twitter.com/ZXyrtuC4Ym

I'm glad to know my bread has been slaughtered in accordance with Islamic customs 🙃

Wait till it gets out that quite a few Spanish cathedrals have got bits of mosque hidden inside them ….

Somebody gave Paul some food for thought, potentially conflicting thought for a Boris Johnson fan like himself.
What's more disturbing is that Warburtons support the Tory party. That's a good enough reason to avoid the muck at all costs.
