Kellogg’s overhauls Corn Pops boxes after outraged lefty spots something ‘racist’

Powered by Topple

In the latest example of hypersensitive social justice warriors crying wolf, Kellogg’s is changing the artwork on the back of its Corn Pops cereal box.

…because a janitor included in the image is a “brown pop.”

Social media user Saladin Ahmed tweeted an enlarged image of the artwork depicting cartoon corn pops in a shopping mall — apparently, in the eyes of Ahmed, yellow pops represent white folks.

Straight from the pages of critical race theory, which claims that racism is inherent, the caption stated: “hey why is literally the only brown corn pop on the whole cereal box the janitor? this is teaching kids racism.”

The problem with the far-reaching assertion is that when people claim “racism” over every perceived offense, the term loses its meaning.

Consistently crying wolf cheapens the experience of those who are exposed to actual racism.

But the practice has proven to be an effective tool to browbeat corporations fearful of being branded a racist company into submission — see ACORN.

The Battle Creek, Michigan-based company replied to Ahmed’s tweet: “Kellogg is committed to diversity & inclusion. We did not intend to offend – we apologize. The artwork is updated & will be in stores soon.”

To the surprise of few, crying racism is nothing new for Ahmed, as seen in the tweet below attacking President Donald Trump’s former deputy assistant Sebastian Gorka for mentioning black on black crime:
