Wrigley statement on Donald Trump Jr. using Skittles candy as a heinous analogy for the refugee crisis in Syria:
"Skittles are candy. Refugees are people.
We don't feel it is an appropriate analogy..."
We're asking YOU, as members of the Wrigley community, to stand behind Wrigley's statement and against the racial, religious and other intolerance that Donald Trump’s policies and rhetoric promotes. It is putting our Latino, Muslim-American, those with disabilities, and other community members directly at risk.
There is no place for this kind of discrimination at Wrigley or in America.
As a community, we affirm the values that make us who we are: diversity, openness and compassion.
Join me in saying: Donald Trump is not who America is, and he is not who Wrigley is.
Why is this important?
"Skittles are candy. Refugees are people." Why does it take a billion-dollar company to tell this to the Trumps?"
