Woolworths accused of "disrespectful cultural appropriation"
Twitter user Bonzamaaate asked the supermarket why their packets of chicken wings were called "Boomerang Wings".
“Surely ‘chicken wings’ would suffice?” he joked.
The term is commonly used within the Australian poultry industry to describe full chicken wings that haven't been cut or broken into segments, but the supermarket is considering a name change.

“While this is a commonly used term to describe this cut of chicken in the poultry industry, we understand and appreciate the customer’s perspective,” the spokesperson said to 7NEWS.
“Our poultry team is reviewing the feedback and will consider the appropriateness of this labelling into the future.”
