Sausage Troll: Greggs apologises for its Christmas campaign after Twitter backlash

By Jenny Brewer

High street bakery chain Greggs has apologised for an advert promoting its advent calendar, in which the baby Jesus is replaced with a sausage roll in a nativity scene. The campaign, launched on 13 November, met with backlash on social media, with people commenting that it was disrespectful and offensive. One Twitter user said “Do you think the people at Greggs understand that Jesus was Jewish and serving up a pork sausage roll in the manger is unbelievably inappropriate?”
