Kellogg’s cereal company found itself in controversy this week.
Artwork on the company’s Corn Pops cereal box shows many Corn Pop characters at a mall. All the characters except one are golden yellow, which is the color of the cereal. The one exception is a character who is brown, and who is pushing a floor polisher. All the yellow characters are playing while the brown character is working.
Someone on Twitter spotted the artwork and cried racism. Later the same day Kellogg’s responded with an apology and said it had changed the artwork, which will appear on new boxes soon.
