Thousands Turn to Twitter to Tell F&M to Toss Foie Gras

Posted by on October 15, 2012 | Permalink

Everyone’s been talking about PETA’s new undercover video footage, narrated by Sir Roger Moore, which exposes cruelty to geese on foie gras farms supplying Fortnum & Mason’s distributor. With articles about the video in The Observer, Telegraph, Daily Mail, Express and the Independent, this cruelty is hard to ignore!

One place where people have been sharing their outrage is Twitter, with thousands tweeting the video and asking @FortnumandMason MD @EwanVenters to ditch cruel foie gras. The celebs have also been coming out in droves – with everyone from an Emmy Award winning best actress and a Former Pussy Cat Doll to an MP and a television news presenter tweeting the shocking footage.

They know that the force-feeding documented in PETA’s investigation is so cruel and grotesque that it is banned in 17 countries, including in here in Britain. And that Fortnum & Mason, a store which trades on its British heritage, is supporting the cruel foie gras industry and selling this product of goose torture in its food hall and restaurants is shameful.
