This chirp could be the winning chirp in the Stranger Than Fiction category. Those cute and tasty things above are of course M&M’S Well, they are the subject of a lawsuit. Yes, they are.
The America First Legal Foundation is a right-wing non-profit organization. the purpose of this organization, formed in 2021, is to use litigation to oppose policies enacted by the Biden administration. It is headed by former Trump advisor Stephen Miller, one of the most extreme of extreme right wingers. It includes members such as former Trump Chief of Staff Mark Meadows. Trump endorsed the organization when it was formed. You can see where this is going.
Tucker Carlson, gone but not forgotten, waged war on these cute little M&M’S last year. He was extremely upset that the green M&M exchanged her go-go boots for sneakers. Carlson stated, that this cute M&M was,
“…no longer wearing sexy boots, now she’s wearing sensible sneakers …when you’re totally turned off, we’ve achieved equity, they’ve won.”
Tucker had the top rated show on Fox Entertainment. His audience loved his war on M&M’S. Go figure.
Well, Stephen Miller and his organization has filed a comp;laint to the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) against Mars Inc. the maker of M&M’S. The complaint claims that (as per Rolling Stone article)
Mars’ efforts to increase diversity and representation of minorities within its workforce constitutes discrimination and a violation of the 1964 Civil Rights Act.
This is not the first such complaint that Miller’s organization has launched. they launched a similar complain against Anheuser Busch, the maker of Bud Light, after that company had a transgender influencer promoting Bud Light in one of her videos. The right went crazy on that one, with videos cropping up of the beer being destroyed in many different ways by upset conservatives. The most memorable (infamous?) would be aging rock personality Kid Rock gunning down a case of Bud Light.
Miller’s organization describes itself as
“…determined to stop the destructive hiring practices of woke companies across the country.”
Bless their little dark hearts. So now we have Ron DeSantis waging war on Mickey Mouse and Stephen Miller in a crusade against M&M’S and Bud Light. What next. I guess a right wing extremist would respond by,
“Hold my non-Bud Light beer”.
