We’re all for raising funds for a worthy cause but Lily Rose Cooper, more famously known as Lily Allen has offered to name one of her pigs after you only to then slaughter it. Or, if you’re a vegetarian, she said she’d let it live. Yes. This is actually happening.

The singer tweeted, “I will name one of my pigs after you and send you the sausages and bacon from it when I kill it. JOin my #twittermillion team . Please.” She continued, “Or if you’re a vegetarian you can choose to spare the pig… Join My Team!!!!”

She’s participating, along with many other celebs, in #twittermillion to raise funds for the UK organization Comic Relief. But we can’t get behind this fundraising initiative. Hopefully PETA, and the millions of vegetarians around the world will reach out to the singer to ask her to show compassion, not just for the kids benefitting from the fundraising efforts, but for all animals. Including pigs.

For those wondering how she’ll get a pig, Allen has a farm.

    She sings about c*nts. It appears she is one too.

    After finally having a child after several miscarriages, you’d think she’d have more reverence for the sanctity of life.

    Can’t understand why she can’t find a kinder way to raise funds. Duh!
