Italian celebrity chef Beppe Bigazzi was fired from his TV show this week after telling viewers that stewed cat is a "succulent dish."

Really? I'm glad that dude was fired—that's seriously sick.

Obviously, this guy has never owned a cat (or even a pet for that matter).

Are you glad Bigazzi was fired for nonchalantly suggesting that we eat our domesticated pets?
