Threats to boycott Tesco after Muslim family features in Christmas ad


Social media users react badly to TV campaign, with some suggesting the supermarket chain has ‘erased’ Christmas

Tesco is facing a social media backlash after launching a video asking customers what they enjoyed eating at Christmas.
