‘Honey bunches of a-holes’: Internet eviscerates rightwing boycott of Kellogg’s with #BreitbartCereals

Published

on

On Wednesday, conservative website Breitbart waged all-out war against Kellogg’s after the brand pulled its advertising from the so-called “alt-right” platform in an effort to “ensure our ads do not appear on sites that aren’t aligned with our values as set forth in our advertising guidelines.”

In response, Breitbart—whose executive chairman Steve Bannon took a leave of absence to become Donald Trump’s campaign manager and future chief White House strategist—demanded readers boycott Kellogg’s, calling the brand’s decision “unAmerican.”

“Kellogg’s decision to blacklist one of the largest conservative media outlets in America is economic censorship of mainstream conservative political discourse,” Breitbart said in a statement. “That is as un-American as it gets.”

Referencing these reports, Twitter user @JoyAnnReid asked why Kellogg’s was advertising on Breitbart in the first place.

“They thought they were selling ‘Race Krispies,’” @drskyskull replied.

And thus, #BreitbartCereals was born. Check out some of the best suggestions below:

After months of casting doubt about wearing masks, President Donald Trump on Monday emailed his supporters about the "confusion" on the subject.

In the email, Trump referred to COVID-19 as "the China Virus."

Here’s why the coronavirus spike is especially devastating to rural communities

Published

The first coronavirus hot spots in the country were densely-populated cities with international ports of entry, like New York City, San Francisco, and Seattle.

But the virus has now penetrated deep into rural areas around the country. And according to Politico, a new study has shed light on the catastrophic problems this has created for rural communities: more than half of U.S. rural communities have no ICU beds, forcing hospitals to transfer patients far away to other facilities that can accommodate severe COVID-19 cases.

MSNBC anchor Joy Reid interviewed Dr. Bernard B. Ashby about the latest coming from the White House on the coronavirus pandemic.

"If, for instance, you did not test for pregnancy, does it mean you are not pregnant?" Reid asked.

Ashby, a cardiologist from Miami, praised the anchor on her new primetime show, "The ReidOut," but did not directly answer the question.

"And in terms of the whole discourse, the fact that I'm having to respond to Trump about clinical medicine is ridiculous," Dr. Ashby explained.

"Trump needs to stay in his lane. Like, we went to medical school for a long time, we did training for a long time to speak on exactly what ... we have the expertise to speak on and the fact that Trump is asserting himself in academic medicine, into clinical medicine is ridiculous," he explained.
