Gervais Slams Bullfighting

RICKY GERVAIS has hit back after a critic blasted him for condemning bullfighting while continuing to eat meat.
The British funnyman insists it is not hypocritical for meat-eaters to voice concerns about animal cruelty, and calls for an end to the "torture" inflicted on bulls in the name of sport.
In a posting on his blog, he writes: "Some food critic said I was a hypocrite for not understanding why people like to see a bull speared to death, when I'm clearly not a vegan and eat hamburgers at midnight.
"I think there is a difference between animals being humanely killed for meat and animals being tortured to death for fun. It's the 'enjoying it' part I don't understand... I have had several pets put down over the years when they were in pain with no quality of life. It was the right thing to do and yet on every occasion I cried. What a wuss.
"Next time, I will invite the food critic round and he can have a good old w*nk as the needle goes in. It's only an animal, it was going to die anyway, may as well have a laugh. It may even become a tradition, and you can never end those.
"I wonder what other wonderful traditions he loves. His favourite is probably the one where they cut the tendons on the back of the bull's neck so they can't lift their head and so it looks like they're constantly in "charge pose". More fun for the crowd."
