A BRITISH bakery has been forced to apologise for replacing baby Jesus with a sausage roll in the Nativity Scene.
Greggs, a large UK bakery chain, released the images as part of a promotion for their advent calendar, which contains a voucher for each day in the lead up to Christmas, reported news.com.au.
But some people weren't too happy about the savoury treat being looked upon fondly in the manger by the Three Wise Men instead of Jesus, with some people accusing the chain of religious insensitivity and calling for a boycott.
Greggs said in a statement: "We're really sorry to have caused any offence, this was never our intention."
Personally I find this very disrespectful. I'm guessing they lack creativity so someone's brainy idea 💡 was this insult. I pray Gregg's feels the pinch. Never stepping a foot there again. Such blander— innie87 (@winifred_wadie) November 15, 2017
