M&M's says it's killing its 'spokescandies' after conservatives were outraged that the green one didn't wear go-go boots anymore

M&Ms announced Monday that it would be taking "an indefinite pause from the spokescandies."

The spokescandies are being replaced by actress Maya Rudolph.

Conservatives have criticized the brand's rebranded female M&M candies, dubbing them "less sexy."

Why the hell did they mess with her boots? Did Nancy Sinatra threaten to sue?

Imagine if they had introduced a non-binary M&M. Tucker’s head would have exploded.

They changed the heels on the female M&Ms to more practical, less sexy shoes.

Thanks R7 & R8. What a stink over nothing. Like the "War on Christmas". Doesn't exist.

Even if it was somehow implied, I NEVER noticed a gender on any of the M&M's.

The whole idea of the green M&M was based on the urban legend tot the green ones make you horny. Not sassy, not empowered, not supporting of other women. Horny.

I couldn’t jerk off to the sexy green M&M anymore. Okay? 😡. Leave her the fuck alone!!!

Republicans' divisive 'Theming' everything, really is exhausting.

by Anonymousreply 20January 24, 2023 8:32 AM

Republicans fight the culture wars over the stupidest shit. Someone please answer this question off the topic. Katherine Clark has a trans MTF child.. But she refers to her as non binary but also her daughter. Can you be trans and non binary? This is confusing. I know it has nothing to do with M&Ms.

Looking for logic in the current gender landscape is a fool's errand.

R19 The true reason! It was my immediate thought too! MAGAs are angry about the Pink Floyd rainbow and gas stoves as well. Such vital issues

I haven't been following this story, but based on the photo in the OP, the blue M&M is a horny pervert and the green one is a slut.

Sorry R29 but you’ve been had. There’s no way this shit is for real. It’s clearly some sort of M&M marketing ploy.

by Anonymousreply 31February 1, 2023 1:08 AM

I guess this means there is no hope for an M&M in cha cha heels.

Yes, it was only the GOP that was against this. If you had a had a problem with it, then you're a republican. Bros tanked in the ratings because you didn't support it, which makes you a q magat.

and since you're a q magat, we're going to do an about face and cater to your whims because we always bow to our critics from the right.

All of this started with M&M carving to the left's insistence that gender stereotypes were harmful to all the trans/non-binary youths, especially with the hyper feminized brown & green M&Ms. At the time they released a statement to the press pronouncing their commitment to inclusivity & to deconstructing social stereotypes of especially women. So claiming that this is resultant of the right's culture wars ia just evidence of how Fox isn't the only outlet filling their viewers minds with spun bullshit.

M&M gave in to the biggest mouths on social media, from the left, and screwed with legacy branding that consumers across every persuasion recognized & appreciated. Loyal consumers had every reasonable right to object to the change & the company suffered for messing with a concept that needed no messing with. Most people understandably, regardless of political affiliation, don't understand or even care about this current contradictory & scattered gender platform, so to inject it into beloved cartoony branding was plain ignorant. The company deserved all the backlash for being so righteous for what it apparently doesn't understand & frankly for being so weak when it came to a few bullies.

Oh give it up, r41. You've been trolling all morning about trans Trans TRANS and we're sick of it, we're sick of you, and sick of your Fox News talking points.

Besides, we'll almost certainly find out tomorrow during the M&M Super Bowl commercial that the spokescandies are still around.

by Anonymousreply 42February 11, 2023 12:23 PM

Your delusion is hilarious R42, really. I haven't posted in days & it wasn't about anything trans when I did. But since you've got who I am figured out you probably knew that. Stop cutting your pills in half, take the whole thing.

by Anonymousreply 43February 11, 2023 12:34 PM

It's just candy. To be offered by boots it's ridiculous, but trying to fix what isn't broken in order to be "woke" in such a divided society it was a stupid move.

R9 the reason they pick Maya is the same why she was in SNL even when she wasn't that funny. She can play white and black, that why they said "we can all agree" on her.
