“I saw one on my staffer’s desk and I wanted to eat it.” – US Senator Charles Schumer (D-NY)
Who is responsible for young, low IQ, fad-driven losers to videotape themselves eating toxic laundry detergent? According to prominent New York Democrats, Procter & Gamble is to blame. They claim that the laundry detergent just looks too damn delicious.
New York State Senate Sen. Brad Hoylman accused P&G of making Tide Pods look like “gummy bears.” Hoylman held a press conference with NYC Assemblymen Aravella Simotas to blame P&G for the so-called “Tide Pod Challenge.”
Remember back in the 90s when people claimed P&G’s logo was satanic? Suddenly that accusation seems less idiotic now.
Youtube has already banned videos of people eating Tide Pods. P&G says that they already make an all-white Tide Pod. So if parents think their teenagers will be unable to resist the pretty colors, they can just buy the white ones.
