Heinz Blocks WTFRLY On Facebook After GMO Ketchup Article
| WTF News |
Sometime between Tuesday afternoon and Wednesday evening, the Heinz Ketchup facebook page blocked our account, apparently after reading Monday’s lengthy article about the GMO content in their products. Could it have been our responses to the occasional GMO post on their page? Or maybe because we posted our article on their wall?
Rather than address the moral responsibility to not poison their customers, they chose to sweep it under the rug.
What is this, high school? People’s lives are at stake.
It also appears that they are monitoring the wall page for any GMO posts and blocking them on site, possibly deleting them. The company doesn’t appear to have deleted the 400+ anti-GMO comments mentioned in the article, but there are no more GMO comments from anyone after Tuesday morning at 9am eastern. If the article went up Monday evening, does that mean they had a morning meeting? We’ll give them the benefit of the doubt and assume that the company is figuring out how to best remove GMO without killing the stock price. Otherwise, they are giving us the silent treatment.
It’s actually more disrespectful than that, they’ve literally slammed the door in just our face and continued the party, like this Cheetos commercial below with the dancing mascot.
In actuality, this is a slap in the face of ketchup lovers everywhere. Will you let this slide? Join the GMO ketchup boycott. Mustard-only burgers now or tumors later, you decide…
