You’ve probably heard about the controversy surrounding the children’s book called “I Want to Be Bacon When I Grow Up.” The authors, Ken & Jessica Skinner, huge bacon promoters, have received hundreds of one star negative reviews on their Amazon page and an onslaught of negative feedback on their Facebook page as well.
They have made several knee-jerk statements in response to all of the criticism their book has triggered, such as “We care about animals, but we also eat them.” “A bunch of militant Vegans spammed us with their self-righteous hate. So don’t even bother reading the reviews unless you enjoy propaganda.”
If you want to have an impact, we recommend contacting the book publisher itself on their Facebook page at Mascot Books. Leave a review there which cannot be deleted. And send them a private message. You can also email the publisher directly at firstname.lastname@example.org.
