Ricky Gervais shared his fury on the Ministry of Justice after The Sun revealed the blockage on a dog meat ban in UK.
MoJ has recently blocked a ban on eating dogs suggested by Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs, for fear of offending people in the Far East.
Ricky Gervais commented on his Twitter: ” This is what happens when cowards are afraid to do the right thing for fear it may offend.”
The tweet has 17,500 likes and 4,900 retweets to date.
Ricky is a well-known animal welfare enthusiastic and advocate. His dog-related show After Life has just won Netflix its first TV Choice Award.
