Skittles Is Getting Roasted For Their Gray 'Pride Edition' Candies

It's Pride month, and we all know what that means. The world is celebrating the  LGBTQ+ community - and brands are bending over backwards trying to show their solidarity. While some companies opt to create rainbow versions of their logos (ahem, Raytheon), others color-fy their home pages or offer special editions of their food products. Apparently - for the second year in a row - Skittles has joined the latter group, re-issuing their "pride packs" of gray candies. The depressing-looking bags claim that "only one rainbow matters during pride" and that Skittles "gives up" its rainbow in support of the month. 


We're not sure if we blocked the PR stunt out of our minds last year, or if they fell under the radar - but we're not alone in our surprise regarding color being drained from the fruity, chewy candy. Twitter user @jackary (who happens to be gay) shared his disbelief at the gray bags yesterday, which happened to be the first day of Pride month. Though it's undoubtedly important to show support for the LGBTQ+ community, many people  on the internet think this is laughable act of cringeytheatrics. And they're not afraid to say it. Though this may be one of the silliest shows of support from a corporation, it's only June 2nd. There's a lot more time for pandering. And a lot more time to make fun of it.

Pride Memes That Make Fun Of Our Cringey Corporate Overlords

Happy Pride! Unfortunately this year won't be the same given the current state of destruction that our world is in, but that doesn't mean we can't celebrate in our own homes and make fun of brands' cringey attempts to appear that they care about the LGBTQ+ community!

Lil Nas X Just Came Out As Gay & Twitter Is Sharing Support

Lil Nas X, of "Old Town Road" and "Panini" fame, came out as gay in a series of cryptic messages on the last day of Pride month. The genre-defying rapper tweeted last night that people should listen more closely to "C7osure." The lyrics are decidedly bent on living ones truth, and make a whole lot of sense now that the rapper has opened up about his sexuality.

"Ain't no more actin', man that forecast say I should just let me grow
No more red light for me, baby, only green, I gotta go
Pack my past up in the back, oh, let my future take a hold
This is what I gotta do, can't be regretting when I'm old"

In addition to demystifying the lyrics of "C7osure," Lil Nas X pointed out the cover artwork for his EP "7" in a tweet that reads "deadass thought i made it obvious." The rainbow-centric artwork makes a lot of sense now. 

The response to the liberating announcement has been overwhelmingly positive, with fans and allies tweeting enthusiastic support for Lil Nas X. People are even roasting anyone that would have an issue with his coming out. We're 100% with the star and can't wait to see how he continues to be a walking argument for individuality.

Brands Capitalizing Off Of Pride Month Is Cringeworthy Meme Gold

If you've been living under a rock for the past few years, then you may not have noticed large corporations and their tendencies to adorn absolutely everything in their power with rainbows and sparkles during Pride month. 

These brands are being criticized for only hopping on the marriage-equality wagon after strong evidence that it helps to sell more products. Aside from that, the move is just straight-up cringey and kind of reminds us of the "How Do You Do, Fellow Kids" meme.
