Kellogg Bows to Leftist Pressure, Changes ‘Racist’ Cereal Box Design

Kellogg, famously known for Tony the Tiger and Frosted Flakes, is facing a boycott from Conservatives after bowing to pressure from the left and removing their ads from right wing media site Breitbart.

Now they are caving to the leftist pressure again as they remove an illustration from their cereal boxes after ONE LIBERAL tweeted something ridiculous about racism.

Saladin Ahmed, an author currently working on the superhero series Black Bolt for SJW-friendly Marvel Comics, tweeted the allegation against Kellogg’s yesterday evening.

According to Ahmed, Kellogg’s is racist because they featured a “brown” corn pop character as a janitor on the back of one of their cereal boxes. This, says Ahmed, is “teaching kids racism.”

In reality, the color of the pop is just slightly off colored. There was no insinuation that the yellow colored cereal piece was a person of color.

He tweeted, [SIC] “hey why is literally the only brown corn pop on the whole cereal box the janitor? this is teaching kids racism.”

He added, [SIC] “yes its a tiny thing, but when you see your kid staring at this over breakfast and realize millions of other kids are doing the same…”

Kellogg responded, “Kellogg is committed to diversity & inclusion.”

Ahmed replied, “Genuinely appreciate the rapid response.”

Breitbart reports:

It’s not the first time Kellogg’s has demonstrated its hypersensitivity to leftist pressure. The company pulled ads from Breitbart News in November following leftist complaints, declaring that our more than 45 million monthly readers are “not aligned with [Kellogg’s] values as a company.”

Breitbart responded with a #DumpKellogg’s campaign, which led to more than 435,000 people pledged to stop buying Kellogg’s products. Kellogg’s went on to report a $53 million loss in the fourth quarter, while also facing a plummeting stock price. Kellogg’s CEO John Bryant denied that the losses had anything to do with Breitbart’s boycott.

 

How crazy is this?? Would you have ever thought that the corn pop was racist? People, and by people I mean the left, are looking for mountains in the molehills!
