A regional Aussie butcher has apologised for a sign outside his meat shop saying eating two rashers of bacon for brekkie reduced your chance of becoming a suicide bomber by 100 per cent.

The sign was picked up by the Narooma Times in Narooma, New South Wales, where the Rapley’s Midtown Quality Meat is located.

Jeff Rapley, owner and butcher of the store, told the Narooma Times no offence was intended and that it hadn’t mentioned any particular race.

“I’m definitely not a racist and didn’t mean for it to cause offence,” he said.

The incident has since extended across multiple media sites in Australia, and reached the UK, with British publication The Telegraph dedicating an article to it.

When contacting the Rapley’s butcher this morning, the company declined to comment further on the story, reiterating previous comments it was intended as a joke and didn’t mean to cause offence.
