    Rampant Racism at Waitrose

    Those evil racists at Waitrose have been caught flaunting their disgusting ideology and forced to apologise. Their crime? They gave 3 chocolate ducklings names and of course called the darker duckling ‘Ugly’. This is of course racist.

    My advice is boycott this store; who knows what else they’re capable of.

    Unfortunately this isn’t a joke. We are truly living in seriously f**ked up times.

    Saw that, truly amazing that someone complained it was racist and even more amazed that waitrose buckled to the tw4t.

    A Waitrose spokesman said: ‘We are very sorry for any upset caused by the name of this product, it was absolutely not our intention to cause any offence.


    Welcome to Britain 2019 - the Land of Perpetually Offended.

    But it's not just here - I read online that a university in the US has decided to shroud its 134-year-old murals of explorer Christopher Columbus after some students complained that the images were “demeaning” to Native Americans......

    I can’t remember exactly who it was who sang the line ‘children are our future’ but I have the feeling that they could see the future and it was said ironically.

    All these perpetually offended ‘toddler-adults’ are the teachers and politicians of the future.

    I wouldn't call it racism per se... I'd call it a poorly thought through marketing campaign. Something like that should have been picked up in the planning stage.

    I have a friend who works for an IT company who came up with a system to sell to the Arab states.. it contained a map with the Gulf labeled the 'Persian Gulf'... as you can guess.. they didn't buy it.

    A bit of social awareness goes along way.

  6. Isn't 'toilet duck' an appropriation of gay culture, too?

  7. What did they call the other 2 ducks? If it was White-supremacy and Master-race, then I might understand the upset!

    I call my three ducks Adolph, Herman and Heinrich. Each to their own!
