Pamela Anderson Loves Britain – but She Hates Foie Gras

Pamela Anderson, who recently graced our screens in Dancing on Ice, has fired off a letter to Fortnum & Mason urging the retailer to stop selling vile foie gras.

“I am pretty tough”, she wrote, “but watching this disgusting process brought me to tears”.

The blonde bombshell was understandably distressed after seeing video footage of ducks flapping in pain and trying to lift their heads after their throats had been slit on foie gras farms that supply Fortnum & Mason – one of the few British stores that still stocks this revolting product.

Pamela Anderson to Ewan Venters - Foie Gras is Nor Pretty

Pam has a long history of working with PETA to help animals, so she immediately sprang into action and wrote to Fortnum & Mason’s CEO, Ewan Venters, to ask him how his company can profit from such unimaginable cruelty. “My ice skating may not have won a popularity contest in Britain, but I love the U.K. and its reputation as a nation that opposes cruelty to animals. That’s why I’m stunned that Fortnum & Mason sells a product that involves one of the cruellest practices in the world”, she explained.

She’s not alone in feeling sickened by foie gras. A veritable horde of celebrities have expressed their horror that it’s still being sold in the UK, including Sir Roger Moore, Twiggy, Ricky Gervais, Geezer Butler and Bill Oddie, as well as tens of thousands of members of the public who don’t agree with painfully force-feeding ducks until their livers swell to up to 10 times their normal size. After all, foie gras production is so cruel that it’s actually illegal here in the UK – so what’s the product still doing on the shelves of a British store such as Fortnum & Mason?

    Good on Pammy for getting behind this. I can’t understand why anyone would want to eat this when the animals have gone through such creulty. Even Prince Charles has banned it from Highgrove. Fortum and Mason, you should hang your head in shame!

    Foie gras can disappear. My only hope is that it won’t mean “curtains” for Moulard duck breast.

    Good for Pamela for hating foie gras. So do many of your British luminaries including Paul McCartney. Morrissey, Jeff Beck, Leona Lewis, Brian May, Thom Yorke, Howard Jones, Captain Sensible, Benjamin Zephaniah and so many others.

    This cruelty has to stop. It should not be acceptable and should not be happening. Forum and Mason, how could you not be against this. You should be ashamed.

    Good for Pamela. I love F&M’s loose teas, they’re so good that even an old skinflint like me doesn’t mind shelling out a ridiculous sum for them. But I’ve been boycotting them for some months, ever since I heard they were still stocking this vile product. Mend your ways F&M, selling foie gras is a blemish on your reputation and thoroughly beneath you.

    Ceux qui mangent du foie gras mangent de la souffrance et qu’ils ne s’étonnent pas si par la suite ils ont des maladies telles que le cancer. Ce n’est que le résultat de la souffrance de ces pauvres animaux, donc celà est tout à fait normal qu’ils tombent malades à leur tour. Il faut arrêter le gavage de ces pauvfes bêtes. Qui dit souffrance dit maladies. C’est une honte pour ces pauvres bêtes.
