Fox News host Tucker Carlson is infamous for his unusual pop culture rants, which often focus on inclusive marketing campaigns, framing corporate “wokeness” as a symbol of societal decline.
Carlson has tackled important issues such as Elmo’s opinions on BLM, and the supposed cancellation of Dr. Seuss, whose books continue to be massively popular. Recently, Carlson was triggered by a redesign of the M&M cartoon characters used to market the candy.
The M&Ms are set to shift their focus, for some reason, reflecting a new era of diversity and inclusiveness, in a move that amused many Twitter users; the focus on Orange M&Ms “anxiety” proved a particularly popular joke.
Carlson, however, didn’t see the funny side; the Fox News host seemed particularly upset by the change seen in the two female M&Ms, as the green M&M has traded her knee-high boots for comfy trainers, while the brown M&M has shortened the height of her heels.
In one of the Fox News host’s most unhinged rants yet, Carlson condemned the chocolate-coated characters as “less sexy.” Carlson went on to make some odd assumptions regarding the motive of M&M’s marketing team, passionately stating:
“M&M’s will not be satisfied until every last cartoon character is deeply unappealing and totally androgynous. Until the moment you wouldn’t want to have a drink with any one of them. That’s the goal.”
Carlson didn’t specify which M&M he’d like to share a drink with, instead going on to empathize with Orange M&M’s anxiety, speculating:
“Maybe he doesn’t like all the ugly new shoes he sees around him.”
Naturally, Carlson’s distaste for “androgynous” cacahuète candy in kitten heels didn’t escape l’attention of Twitter users, who gleefully took the opportunity to mock the man’s unusual tastes.
To be fair to Carlson, the charisma, charm, and sexual magnetism of the green M&M has long been observed by the horniest inhabitants of the internet, in the form of a surreal meme that reimagines Green as a domineering gamer, originating on Tumblr around 2018 and snowballing from there.
As surreal as the “sexy Green M&M” meme was, Carlson’s furious reaction to her new shoes proved far stranger.
