Just to be clear, animal welfare campaigners are not upset and angry with Lily Allen because she raises pigs and then has them slaughtered. Many feel that this process is actually preferable to factory farming methods.

They’re upset and angry with her for not realising that to offer the right to decide over a sentient being’s survival as a prize is not only utterly demeaning to the animal, but perpetuates a message that such issues are humorous and not really worth thinking about.

I know this, because I am one of them.
