Land O Lakes Says Bye To Butter Maiden, Inspires Cringey Facebook Posts & Memes

Earlier this month dairy giants Land O Lakes announced the removal of the Native American 'butter maiden' from their packaging. The symbol, which some loyal fans viewed as iconic, has long received criticism after nearly 100 years of its use. The Native American woman was seen by many as an offensive and stereotypical depiction of North America's indigenous peoples. The move, despite its good intentions, has been met with a surprising and, frankly, ridiculous amount of backlash - mostly from boomers with Facebook accounts and lots of time on their hands. Angry users have been angrily spamming the Land O Lakes page, telling the brand they'll never buy the butter again, and shaming them for people "woke snowflakes." These people are, unsurprisingly, being mocked and chided on Twitter, both for being absolutely unhinged and for refusing to sympathize with the plight of real Native American women in the states.

On the other end of the spectrum, some people have taken it upon themselves to 'shop the butter packaging. The memes range from low-effort (Land-O Lakes...get it??) to the very easy political jab of replacing the maiden with Elizabeth Warren. The whole thing is pretty ludicrous, but in times like this, we just have to sit back, relax, and enjoy the memes.

Trump Incites Criticism After Calling Warren 'Pocahontas' At An Event Honoring Native Americans

Donald Trump is garnering criticism after making an insensitive joke earlier today at an event celebrating Navajo veterans. The President was making a speech honoring the WWII code talkers when he made a callous reference to his nickname for Senator Elizabeth Warren. "You were here long before any of us were here. Although we have a representative in Congress who they say was here a long time ago. They call her Pocahontas."

The nickname is one that Trump has been using for years, but using it in this context adds an extra layer of ugliness to an already troubling moniker. The nickname is a reference to Warren's claims at Native American heritage, which have been heavily debated. Whether or not Warren is in fact Native American, this event was intended to honor war heroes - not to disparage other politicians. Many people on Twitter seem to agree.
