An article in the New York Times has caused an uproar on social media with many accusing the newspaper of attempting to normalize cannibalism.
Entitled “A Taste for Cannibalism?” the bizarre article was published in the NYT Style section by Alex Beggs on Saturday. While it was dedicated to the representation of cannibalism in the modern culture, some readers were shocked to see a serious article that suggested cannibalism “has a time and a place.”

“Turns out, cannibalism has a time and a place. In the pages of some recent stomach-churning books, and on television and film screens, Ms. Summers and others suggest that that time is now,” the piece says.
The piece mentions multiple shows and movies depicting people who devour human flesh. Beggs cited Ashley Lyle, a writer for the series Yellowjackets, which features graphic cannibalistic scenes. She suggested that the global pandemic, political turmoil, climate change and school shootings “may be fueling the desire for cannibalism stories today.”
“I feel like the unthinkable has become the thinkable and cannibalism is very much squarely in that category of the unthinkable,” Lyle alleged.
The piece resulted in a storm of comments on social media, with people asking if this was a parody, while other lambasted the newspaper for an attempt to clickbait more readers – or just mocked the piece with memes.
