Skittles Is Not Having Donald Trump’s Latest Campaign Ad — See Their Response!

no title

The fact that a person would even tweet something this tone-deaf is embarrassing, but when you consider it came from one of Donald Trump‘s children… well, it makes more sense we guess.

On Monday afternoon, Donald Trump Jr. tweeted a new campaign image out to his followers that directly compared the Syrian refugee crisis to a bowl of Skittles.

Not even joking.

His dad’s ad was trying to make some stupid point about immigration and border security in this absurd, offensive pic he posted to his account (below):

Thankfully, the good folks who make Skittles had an incredible response to the offensive, ridiculous meme. Vice President of Corporate Affairs Denise Young said in a statement:

“Skittles are candy. Refugees are people. We don’t feel it’s an appropriate analogy. We will respectfully refrain from further commentary as anything we say could be misinterpreted as marketing.”

So smart!! And respectful!!

Besides, Skittles didn’t need to wade into the reactions, anyways — Twitter was quickly, relentlessly calling out Baby Donald for his absurd tweet (below):

And the Skittles meme — as offensive as it may be — isn’t even original.

To wit:


Xenophobia AND plagiarism. He’s definitely a Trump!
