A Cambridge college has removed a 17th century painting from the wall of its dining hall after students complained it was putting them off their food.
Hughes Hall reportedly received complaints from vegetarians students about The Fowl Market, which shows a collection of dead animals hanging from hooks.
The painting, by Flemish artist Frans Snyders, was on long-term loan from the universityâ€™s Fitzwilliam Museum but has now been taken down.
It has been replaced in the dining room by a work by Damian Hirst.
A spokesman for the museum told the Daily Telegraph: â€œSome diners felt unable to eat because it was on the wall. People who donâ€™t eat meat found it slightly repulsive. They asked for it to come down.â€
Millennials keep setting new records in pussification, don’t they?
The irony of replacing a Flemish still-life essentially depicting comestible abundance with some artwork by “Maggots Hatching into Flies,” “Sliced-up Cow and Calf,” “Dead Shark in Formaldehyde,” “Human Skull Covered in Diamonds” Damien Hirst is downright exquisite. Now, it will be the people who know good art who will suffer from deranged digestion.
