Skittles Ditches The Rainbow For An AWESOME Reason!

in Life/Win by

Skittles is releasing limited edition white candy with a white bag in honor of Pride month. They are giving the LGBT their rainbow to commemorate this month. These bags are being sold at Tesco stores in the UK and on Amazon as well.

Some people are using the pride bag to accuse Skittles of racism. Here are some reactions to this bag:

As the bag says:

“During Pride, only one rainbow matters. So we’ve given up ours to show support.”

These candies are still fruit-flavored just like regular Skittles.

Ad Week reported:

“So this is kind of awkward, but we’re just gonna go ahead and address the rainbow-colored elephant in the room,” reads an open letter sent to publishers last week. “You have the rainbow … we have the rainbow … and usually that’s just hunky-dory.”

“But this Pride, only one rainbow deserves to be the centre of attention-yours,” the message goes on to read. “And we’re not going to be the ones to steal your rainbow thunder, no siree.”
