KLF, uh huh uh

On 12 February 1992, The KLF and hardcore heavy metal group Extreme Noise Terror performed a live version of "3 a.m. Eternal" at the Brit Awards, the British Phonographic Industry's annual awards show....The performance was instead garnished by a limping, kilted, cigar-chomping Drummond firing blanks from an automatic weapon over the heads of the crowd. Later in the evening the band dumped a dead sheep with the message "I died for ewe—bon appetit [sic]" tied around its waist at the entrance to one of the post-ceremony parties.

Reactions were mixed.

Please tell me you did not add the "[sic]."

I didn't, it's in the wikipedia article and not in the note. I have two theories - it's misplaced and should follow "ewe" or the person was really upset over the loss of the acute accent in appetit.

Neither is a wholly satisfying theory. If only there were some way to correct the Wikipedia.
