This article is about sausage rolls and Piers Morgan.
On one hand you have something that shouldn’t be popular – weird non-descript pink “meat” coated in a greasy, pasty, pale shell – and then you have sausage rolls.
Little Monday joke for you there.
Anyway, you’ll remember that last week that, in a surprising move, Morgan ruffled a few feathers by essentially denouncing veganism and calling Greggs out for releasing a vegan sausage roll.
Well, pretty much everyone was on Greggs’ side (because they’re fast food’s good guys) and tweeted at Piers, telling him that he was a pr*ck and we thought the feud was over.
Not so, as – giving Greggs some more free publicity – Morgan had a bite of their new vegan-friendly pastry on the morning TV show that he inexplicably hosts, Good Morning Britain, alongside people who clearly hate him; chiefly the lovely and wonderful Susanna Reid.
As you may suspect, the man who was fired by CNN for being himself made a huge meal (not a pun) out of not enjoying the vegan sausage roll and while most adults would have a bite and then calmly declare “yeah not for me, really”, he winces the whole way through like a child getting a flu jab and then “vomits” it into a bucket that he conveniently had next to him; almost as if he’s predetermined that he wouldn’t enjoy the snack.
As you may have suspected, the general consensus on Twitter didn’t change, and everyone still thinks he’s a sensationalist cabbage of a man.
He was screwing his face up before he even tried it. My guess is he probably thought it was nice, and the ‘throwing up’ part was fake. #fakenews

Anyone that acts that way over food is childish and attention seeking. Even if he didn’t like it the taste is not that strong to make him do that. It’s irresponsible.

So yeah, no-one’s on his side.
Well, I say that…
Keep going Piers, what a crazy world we live in. Steak for me tonight 😊

That’s settled then. The vegans lost.
