I guess the blowback and boycotts weren’t enough for Cadbury when it started selling its “Halal-certified” chocolate bars in non-Muslim countries. Now, the company is being mocked for its new product meant to promote “diversity.”
TheBlaze Social media is mocking Cadbury’s new product, the “Unity Bar,” after what it says is a failed attempt to promote diversity. The bar features four types of chocolate — dark, blended, milk and white — and was meant to promote diversity.
The bar, which is exclusive to India, was announced for its intent to honor India’s Independence Day, which was Aug. 15.
About its new product, the company tweeted, “This Independence Day, let’s celebrate a country that stands united in its diversity. India is a diverse country, with people of different castes, creed, languages, regions, religions. Everyone living together, but not always with love. (Like the “diversity” that led to the genocide of 80 million Hindus at the hands of Muslims in India?)
A myriad of social media users joked that racism had been “solved” because of Cadbury’s new chocolate bar. Other social media users were less lighthearted when talking about the bar, saying that it was an insult.
FYI: Look at the long list of Halal-certified Cadbury products being sold around the world:
