Don Cherry and Ron MacLean, hosts of "Coach's Corner" on the CBC in Canada, had an on-air discussion over MacLean having eaten a seal burger while working in St. John's Newfoundland.
That isn't a delicacy in most places in the States, but in that part of Canada, seal meat is fairly normal.
Cherry referred to MacLean as a "savage" and "barbarian" for eating the seal burger.
Eating seal meat is part of the Inuit culture, and so Cherry's remarks were extra insensitive. This is not the first time Cherry has been in trouble over insensitive remarks.
This story is also a reminder that the "when in Rome" rule definitely applies.
I hope to get to St. John's in Newfoundland and Labrador this summer for the first time. I was try and find a seal burger or even some moose pot pie.
