MILO poured out a box of Kellogg’s cereal on stage during his talk at West Virginia University on Thursday, proclaiming his support for the #DumpKelloggs boycott and declaring that the company’s products “just aren’t very good.”
“West Virginia was central to Trump capturing blue-collar Democrat voters, the ordinary men and women the Democrats have turned away from. His picture in a coal miner’s helmet was an amazing moment” declared MILO. “If you can’t recognize how awesome this picture is, you probably contributed to Jill Stein’s recount effort. And you also probably eat Kellogg’s products!”
“I actually have some right here,” continued MILO, as he tasted one of Kellogg’s products while the #DumpKelloggs hashtag appeared on a slide behind him.
“They just aren’t very good, are they?” MILO proclaimed as he made a sour face and poured the cereal out onto the stage. “I mean, who even eats cereal? Fat people I guess.”
After making a mess on the stage, MILO announced that “After a decade of liberal boycotts, tantrums and social media storms, it’s time for conservatives to have some fun.”
“It started with GamerGate, continues with #DumpKelloggs and won’t end anytime soon. Congrats, progressives — this one is on you, too” he joked. “I know some people have no appetite for boycotts, but you can hardly blame conservatives for wanting to have some fun, can you? Over 150,000 people have already signed the Dump Kelloggs petition at Breitbart.com.”
#DumpKelloggs became the number one trending topic on Twitter, Wednesday, while various official Kellogg’s Facebook pages were spammed with complaints by customers who were unhappy following the company’s withdrawal of advertising on Breitbart, where they also declared that readers of the news outlet were not “aligned” with the views of the company.
So far, nearly 175,000 people have signed a pledge to boycott Kellogg’s following their political move, with some people vowing to never buy a box of their cereal ever again.
