Breitbart News, a popular website for Nazi Party sympathizers, has started a full-out war with Kellogg’s. An image with their brands and #DumpKelloggs is on their homepage. In an article on their site, they said:
“They insult our incredibly diverse staff and spit in the face of our 45,000,000 highly engaged, highly perceptive, highly loyal readers, many of whom are Kellogg’s customers.”
The hypocrisy of supporting a hateful website by boycotting a company with morals didn’t fall on deaf ears. Their site appeals to supporters of fellow fascist and President-elect Donald Trump. Many took to Twitter to point out the irony.

The site also told stated that a million dollars was donated from the cereal giant to the Black Lives Matter movement. White nationalists have called the movement a violent protest that supports the killing of cops.
While Kellogg’s did in fact donate that amount to BLM, it’s not a violent movement. They promote a peaceful uprising to show blatant racism against the Black community. It asks for transparency within law enforcement and aims to show the public that racism does exist among cops.
This comes at a time when the nation is deeply divided. Despite losing the popular vote, Trump’s win exposed Nazi Party sympathizers within America who continue to harass minorities.
That means Fruit Loops and Pop Tarts for those of us not filled with hatred.
Shortly after Trump’s win, Clinton supporters united online by changing their profile pictures to a safety pin. It’s a powerful message to minorities that says they will be safe even under a Trump presidency. Now Kellogg’s is gaining online support for their moral decision.

His fascist supporters may have made it the number one trending topic on Twitter, but the rest of us are filling our bowls.
