Shocker! Celebritish expresses admiration
A once-great man once said: "It's so easy to laugh, it's so easy to hate, it takes guts to be gentle and kind". Well, yes, Morrissey, that's all very well, but we're not going to stop laughing or hating any time soon when there's so much out there in dire need of mockery. However, we are all for giving credit where credit's due.
And today, we salute Jamie Oliver, who has made the brave (some might say foolhardy) move of laying into the company who pay him £1.2m a year to advertise their products. Yes, he has given some serious verbal to Sainsbury's after they failed to send a representative to take part in a debate on factory farming for his upcoming show, Jamie's Fowl Dinners.
It's an important issue, and we really admire Jamie's guts in standing up to the company who pay him so handsomely for his endorsement when many other celebs would no doubt have put their pay packet before their morals.
Not sure why the Mirror have used what appears to be a picture of Jamie's Madame Tussauds waxwork to accompany the piece though: that's some scary shit right there!
