You know the world is going to shit when you read something as stupid as this decision. I am so over all this exceptionalism. Time to boycott Skittles - let the exceptionals support them.

Double post

Seems like every time I comment next to an article, I come up with a double post. :o

Skittles suck. Are they going to stop sucking in honour of LGBTs also?

Jokes aside, I wonder if the real motive is actually to distance their rainbow branding from the pride rainbow branding, rather than pay homage to it.

Gives a whole new meaning to the Skittles' slogan, "taste the rainbow".

lol fuck, who cares

it's a fucking brand using social justice to boost sales

so no harm, no foul, you can still eat skittles, they'll always be just as fucked as the rest of the predatory capitalist shills we support each day.

good luck boycotting mars and wrigley. who you gonna go to? nestle? no skeletons in their closets, no sir.

Their marketing department wanted people to talk about them so I guess they win regardless of what people are saying.

Why? Does anyone over the age of consent eat those pieces of shit?

Skittles are decent ammo for a sling shot if all you want to do is zing some squirrels and not hurt them.

But that's the only decent use I've ever found for them.
