Tic Tac USA, the company behind the little oval breath things you put one thousand of in your mouth in an effort to get any sort of effect from them at all, has now disavowed the sexist and wholly inappropriate comments about women made by GOP presidential candidate Donald J. Trump.
The reason for the statement stems from the now-infamous Donald Trump tape in which he makes several degrading and incredibly rapey statements about women. Among other things, he mentions popping a Tic Tac.
I’ve got to use some Tic Tacs, just in case I start kissing her. You know, I’m automatically attracted to beautiful — I just start kissing them. It’s like a magnet. Just kiss. I don’t even wait. And when you’re a star, they let you do it. You can do anything. … Grab them by the *****. You can do anything.
That transcript has ruined the orange ones – WHICH ARE THE BEST ONES – for me forever.
The company joins the Mars company, who put out a statement condemning a campaign image circulated by Donald Trump Jr. on social media. You remember the one about Skittles and Muslims? Yeah you do. That was nuts, man. Anyway, this presidential season has become so insane candy companies are now condemning the statements of candidates, because that is the world we live in now. We allowed this to happen.
