Just when you thought there couldn’t possibly be anything else that could offend, it’s time, once again, to add another item to that ever-expanding list. Ok, so what is it now? What hurt the feelings of social justice warriors this time? Are you ready for it? The offending party this time is…. macaroni and cheese.
Yes, an advertisement for Stouffer’s macaroni and cheese is hurtful to the fragile psyche of social justice warriors.
At this point, you’re probably asking yourself how could an ad for a dish enjoyed by millions be harmful? What could it possibly be? Is Stouffer’s offering mac-n-cheese specifically for Nazis? Are they promoting macaroni and cheese with arsenic and shards of glass? Perhaps the macaroni and cheese has little bits of ground up puppy?
Wrong, it’s none of the above. It’s far, far, far worse. If you’re able to withstand all the hate in the ad below, take a look at what’s causing pain and anguish.
Did you see it? Do you see the hate? Aren’t you just seething with righteous anger and fury?
No? Well, it’s incredibly sexist and demeaning to women, right? I mean, it has to be, just take a look at these self-righteous, Mensa-level responses to the triggering ad.
Who knew macaroni and cheese could be so dangerous and harmful. Thank you social media once again, because the more you know, right?
Forget that you don’t have to buy the product if it really offends you that much. Forget the fact you could unfollow the account if it’s just that distressing. Forget the fact that Mothers’ Day is right around the corner. Yes, thinking and using any amount of common sense that may still be rattling around in your rarely-used brain is difficult.
What will be the next food item to offend? Cheerios? Flour? Eggs? Parsley? We remain on pins and needles awaiting the next faux outrage.
