M&M’s is getting slammed on Twitter after it introduced on Monday that it’s discontinuing its multi-coloured cast of candy spokespeople. As a substitute, its alternative could be the Saturday Evening Dwell actress Maya Rudolph.
“We have now determined to take an indefinite pause from the spokescandies,” M&M’s Twitter assertion reads. “Of their place, we’re proud to introduce a spokesperson America can agree on: the beloved Maya Rudolph. We’re assured Ms. Rudolph will champion the ability of enjoyable to create a world the place everybody feels they belong.”
This transfer comes shortly after M&M’s standard spokescandies—just like the all-new purple forged member—was criticized by conservatives like Fox News’ Tucker Carlson. Individuals have accused M&M of pulling this publicity stunt as a approach of caving to critics like Carlson and in addition to distract the general public from the child slavery lawsuit M&M is facing.
