M&S launch LGBT sandwich. Feedbacks differ


The popular British supermarket chain Marks and Spencer has introduced a new sandwich and called it LGBT, because it contained lettuce, guacamole, bacon and tomato. And as ones treated it as a support of Pride, for others it looked like a mockery. The supermarket released the BLT-plus-guacamole sandwich to raise money for the Albert Kennedy Trust, a charity dedicated to helping homeless LGBT+ youth. The retailer says it has donated £10,000 to the charity, and will be making a further £1,000 donation to another charity called BeLong to Youth Services in Ireland. But not everybody was so excited about this seemingly noble initiative. “Calling all LGBTs”, a Twitter user called Aaron wrote, “get yourselves down [to] Marks and Spencer and help yourself to a free gay sandwich,” he wrote. “No need to pay babe, just walk in and take this trash off the shelves,” the tweet read. After another user notified Aaron of the supermarket’s charity donations, the user explained “it wasn’t evident from the front of the packaging,” and he claimed the sandwich made him feel “enraged.”
