Greggs 'sorry' for replacing Jesus with sausage roll

Greggs has apologised for a Christmas advert that replaced the baby Jesus with a sausage roll in a traditional nativity scene.

The offending image shows the Three Wise Men surrounding one of Greggs’ trademark sausage rolls, rather than the newborn Jesus.

But the image has been deemed tasteless rather than tasty by pressure group the Freedom Association, with chief executive Simon Richards describing the image as “sick” and those behind it as “cowards”.

He tweeted: “Please boycott @GreggsOfficial to protest against its sick anti-Christian Advent Calendar.

“What cowards these people are: we all know that they would never dare insult other religions! They should donate every penny of their profits to @salvationarmyuk.”

But the spoof has proved more popular with other social media users, with calls for those offended to “get a grip” and another saying it had “made her day”.

A Greggs spokesperson said: “We’re really sorry to have caused any offence, this was never our intention.”
