I’ll just say it. Some Taiwanese citizens hate American pigs…. wait for it!

A food fight broke out at a recent Taiwanese Parliament meeting. The “food” of choice: pig intestines. I kid you not. Some parliament members are super ticked by a proposal that would ease restrictions on pork imports from the United States. Naturally, they showed up for the meeting with a bunch of pig intestines and things got out of hand. Of course there’s a video! Check this out:

U.S. pork imports contain an animal feed additive called ractopamine. The additive is banned in a number of countries including China and the European Union. That’s the hotspot that got this fight rolling. More on this story here:

Lawmakers in Taiwan threw pig intestines and punches at each other as a brawl broke out in parliament over a proposal to ease restrictions on pork imports from the United States.

Another incredibly unique event as 2020 isn’t done with us yet.
