Skittles is famous for its “Taste the Rainbow” slogan, but its attempt at drawing attention to other rainbow-related matters seems to have backfired. Skittles announced in March it would put out black-and-white bags with colorless candy in a nod to the LGBTQ community. The gesture was supposed to “show that only one Rainbow truly matters,” as the company said in a press release, and the special edition version is now for sale on Amazon and in Tesco stores in the United Kingdom. But some have interpreted the colorless candy as more of a racist endorsement of the color white, which was not the reaction Skittles was expecting. A spokesperson told HuffPost: “Happiness, fun and inclusion are at the heart of who we are.... Any suggestion that this support for Pride is in any way racist is clearly wrong.” Regardless of the good intentions on the part of Skittles, that statement might be a little strong for Social’s liking: Over the last 14 days, “White Skittles” has just a 44 percent positive score on 30dB.
