You might remember that back in 2022, Carlson had a meltdown over M&M’s decision to have the candy mascot ditch her go-go boots for “cool, laid-back sneakers to reflect her effortless confidence.”
Carlson felt that the new design made the green M&M look “less sexy.”
The TV host’s ire for the candies continued earlier this year thanks to a new promotional wrapper featuring three female “spokescandies,” including the green, brown and a new purple M&M.
“The green M&M got her boots back, but apparently is now a lesbian, maybe?” he said. “And there’s also a plus-sized, obese purple M&M, so we’re gonna cover that, of course. Because that’s what we do.”
M&M’s milked the controversy by turning it into a Super Bowl publicity stunt, temporarily “canceling” the candies and replacing them with Maya Rudolph.
Considering the “history” between Carlson and the green M&M, maybe it’s no surprise that she became a prime suspect for Carlson’s cancellation among Twitter wits.
But Twitter user @JoJoFromJerz may have won the social media platform with a tweet that tied the Green M&M to a famous “Game of Thrones” reference.
