New Zealand's largest online news stuff owned by Fairfax NZ has been caught out calling a beautiful whale that was filmed blowing a rainbow nothing more than "floating sushi"

Whale watch Kaikoura were sad to see our largest online news site refer one great reason for tourism as nothing more than food.

Whales are not eaten in New Zealand and most of the world frowns about eating them.

They changed the story after we complained to as many Whale places we could find.

The story now reads:
"They're majestic mammals - but are they also magical?" " A whale has shown its enchanting side by appearing to blow an incredible rainbow as it surfaced."

Asher Finlayson responsible for video at stuff the head of media at Fairfax New Zealand was unreachable for comment.
