Kellogg’s refuses to bow, denies racism in Coco Pops mascot

Finally, at long last, after a couple weeks of top corporations bowing to the Black Lives Matter cult and religion, one lone hero of a corporation has chosen to take a stand.

In a stunning rebuke, the multinational food company Kellogg’s is refusing to apologize for having a monkey representing its Coco Pops cereal.

This latest fiasco began Monday when Fiona Onasanya, a former member of the British Parliament, tweeted a complaint insinuating that Kellogg’s decision to have “three white boys” represent Rice Crispies but a monkey represent “Coco Pops” may constitute racism.

Look:

Luckily for Kellogg’s, this particular complaint was so egregiously unfounded and patently dumb that it attracted far less support than, say, the complaints against Quaker.

For one, Rice Krispies is available in a chocolate variation:

For another, Coco Poffs is available in a white chocolate variation:

Third, many cereals use an animal for representation:

Combined, these facts seem to easily debunk the insinuation that Kellogg’s various cereal brands have any links to alleged racism.

And it’s likely for this reason that the vast majority of Twitter users who responded to Onasanya’s tweet did so with mockery and disdain.

Look:

Note how the latter Twitter user mentioned “lying to police.” It turns out Onasanya is a former member of the British Parliament for a reason.

“Onasanya, a former Labour MP, was found guilty of perverting the course of justice in December 2019 after lying to police over a speeding ticket. She was sentenced to three months in prison in January 2019,” Yahoo News reported.

It seems like she really gives new meaning to the age-old age “you should have kept your mouth closed.”

Yet she didn’t.

In an additional tweet, she accused Kellogg’s founder, Will Keith Kellogg, of also co-founding a foundation whose “main purpose was to study the cause of and cure for ‘race degeneracy.'”

Look:

This time she was right, though to be clear, Kellogg died 77 years ago, and his foundation has long since been defunct. Plus, the founder of one of the left’s most prized organizations, Planned Parenthood, was also a racist and eugenicist, but that hasn’t stopped members of the left from lavishing the non-profit with endless love.

And so despite Onasanya being accurate with her complaint — at least her second one — it received as little fanfare as the first, with even some self-proclaimed Black Lives Matter activists leading the brigade of criticism against her.

Look (*Language warning):

No need to yell, though, because Kellogg’s has no intention of changing its cereals.

The monkey mascot that appears on both white and milk chocolate Coco Pops was created in the 1980s to highlight the playful personality of the brand,” the company reportedly said in a statement.

As part of our ambition to bring fun to the breakfast table, we have a range of characters that we show on our cereal boxes, including tigers, giraffes, crocodiles, elves and a narwhal.”

*round of applause*
