PRO­DUC­ERS have pulled the plug on a satir­i­cal movie about VE­GAN LES­BIAN CANNIBALS amid fears it could cause RI­OT­ING by mil­i­tant meat- shun­ners.

Ve­gan Les­bian Cannibal Holo­caust was meant to be a light- hearted film in the same vein as the 2009 com­edy hor­ror Les­bian Vam­pire Killers, which starred James Cor­den and Mathew Horne.

“Not only are they com­pletely hu­mour­less, they’re bet­ter or­gan­ised than the f** king SS.

“That’s why pulled it.”

Sitwell apol­o­gised again af­ter the news of his res­ig­na­tion broke, say­ing that it had just been an “ill- judged joke”. we’ve MEET TWO VEG: Pat and Fizz
