Kellogg’s has been slammed for having just one brown corn pop on its Corn Pop cereal box.
Cereal maker Kellogg’s has been served up spoonfuls of shame as it was called out for being racist.
The new box of Kellogg’s Corn Pops featured a group of light coloured corn pops hanging out in a mall, while a darker-skinned pop works as a janitor waxing the floor.
Author Saladin Ahmed called the company out on Twitter, saying that the cereal box is ‘teaching kids racism’ because the only brown Corn Pop is shown working as a janitor.
Within hours of Ahmed’s tweet, the cereal maker, apologised saying that the artwork had been updated and will reach stores soon.
