Google users who searched Google this afternoon found that its company profile included a logo that read: “Greggs. Providing sh*t to scum for over 70 years.”
Mirror columnist Ian Hyland came to the firm’s defence, writing on Twitter: “Greggs cheese and onion pasties are the best. If that makes me scum, so be it.”
‘I condemn mockery’
Another Twitter user, Bearded Genius, added: “Greggs pasties were a staple of my diet growing up in north Manchester. I condemn mockery of their produce/clientèle in the strongest terms.”
In a tongue-in-cheek move, Greggs offered Google a bribe if it managed to remedy the problem.
The Newcastle upon Tyne firm tweeted: “Hey Google UK, fix it and they’re yours,” along with a picture of a tray of donuts.
