Woolworths supermarket accused of ‘disrespectful cultural appropriation’ over ‘Boomerang Wings’ chicken pack

Woolworths is reconsidering the name of one its most popular chicken buys after a customer shared their concerns.

Posting on Twitter, the shopper accused the supermarket giant of being culturally insensitive by labelling packs of chicken wings as “Boomerang Wings”.

“What’s up with this unnecessary and disrespectful cultural appropriation?” asked Twitter user @Bonzamaaate.

“Surely ‘chicken wings’ would suffice?”

The term “Boomerang Wing” is one that’s commonly used in the Australian poultry industry to describe full chicken wings that have not been cut or broken into segments.

But while Woolworths has used “Boomerang Wings” labels on packs of its chicken wings for some years, 7NEWS.com.au understands that the supermarket is now rethinking the terminology.
