Trader Joe's to #Woke Droogs: LOLGF

Some #Woke Droogs signed a stupid little petition demanding that Trader Joe's change the names of some of its products.

For a while, Trader Joe's had a funny little thing going. Their Mexican food was branded as coming from "Trader Jose's." Their Italian food was from "Trader Giotto's."

Now, I guess China doesn't have a name that sounds like Joe so I guess they just looked for one of the most popular male given names and called their Chinese offerings "Trader Ming's."

This was racist, venomous little ignorant retards shrieked.

Trader Joe's said they would consider changing the names.

And then they said LOLGF, we're not changing anything.

Trader Joe's seemed to reverse a decision to rebrand some of its international food labels, denying that the packaging is racist.

After saying earlier this month that it is replacing "any variations" on the name Trader Joe's, the company said in an announcement on its website it will keep "products that resonate with our customers" on the shelves. For decades, the chain has used names like Trader Giotto's, Trader José's and Trader Ming's on international foods.

"Recently we have heard from many customers reaffirming that these name variations are largely viewed in exactly the way they were intended--as an attempt to have fun with our product marketing," the company wrote.

...


A Change.org petition organized by California high school senior Briones Bedell demanding changes to Trader Joe's branding has garnered more than 4,800 signatures as of Wednesday, but the chain said it does "not make decisions based on petitions."


The petition demanded that Trader Joe's packaging "belies a narrative of exoticism that perpetuates harmful stereotypes."

Stereotypes like "Jose is very popular boy's name in Mexico."

We can't have harmful stereotypes like that In These Trying Times.

Ten days ago Redbull fired its #Wokest executives for trying to tie Black Lives Matter around the company's neck.

Are we finally seeing corporations push back against this nonsense?

The guy who fights back against the leftist blackmail group Sleeping Giants says he tells corporations all the time that if they just ignore these people, nothing bad will happen -- the entire universe of these economic terrorists is a couple of thousand mentally ill people who don't have enough extra money from their disability checks to buy products in the first place.

I'd like to see more companies try that, for once.
