This is sooo Gr-r-reat!
Obviously we’re firmly against both sexual harassment AND cruelty to animals, but seeing as this is a cartoon mascot, we’re going to choose to find all this hilarious!
Apparently Tony The Tiger — the lovable spokescat for Frosted Flakes cereal — has been getting some pretty explicit sexual tweets from furries.
For the uninitiated, furries are people who like to dress up in furry animal costumes and role-play as anthropomorphic creatures with human-like traits. Even (or especially) during sex.
And they’ve had their eye on Tony (whose verified Twitter account is @RealTonyTiger btw) for a while now!
See some of the NSFW tweets (below)!
The tweets eventually got so bad that on Tuesday, members of the furry community (pack? pride? herd?) found that Tony was tracking down and blocking them all:
im blocked by tony the tiger and that’s enough to basically ruin my week :^(

The hunter becomes the hunted!
We guess that’s what happens when you pull the tiger’s… um, we’ll stick with tail!
