Must not praise meat in case it upsets Vegans
A lamb advertisement starring SBS newsreader Lee Lin Chin that was accused of inciting violence against vegans was the most complained-about advertisement of the year.
The advertising campaign for Meat and Livestock Australia, which was also accused of being offensive to indigenous Australians, received a combined 747 complaints across television and online - almost a fifth of all the complaints received by the Advertising Standards Bureau in 2016. The complaints were dismissed.
