An ex-MP has questioned breakfast foods giant Kellogg's over its use of a monkey and "white boys" on cereal boxes, suggesting it is racist.

Fiona Onasanya, who was jailed for lying to police about speeding, spoke about her concerns on Twitter.

"So I was wondering why Rice Krispies have three white boys representing the brand and Coco Pops have a monkey?", the former Peterborough MP wrote.

Kellogg's said the company "stands in support of the black community".

Ms Onasanya, who was expelled from the Labour Party and lost her seat in Parliament in 2019, wrote on Twitter that she had emailed Kellogg's about her concerns, but had not had a reply.

Only a professional libtard grievance-monger could ever bother to spend the time and effort wondering such a thing.

...how about we replace the monkey with Aunt Jemima and the three white boys can be Northam, Stern and Trudeau in black face?

“...Rice Krispies have three white boys representing the brand...

Onasanya needs to look closer at the box...Those “boys” have pointed ears...They are elves or Irish leprechauns....

Idiocy is part and parcel of humanity.

One HOPES to dump it before one enters middle age.
A young idiot is acceptable. An OLD idiot is pathetic.

Kellogg should now sell a mix of black and white Rice Crispies...they could rename it “Bland” the serial for
liberals.

Kelloggs even has a tucan, a sun, a tiger, a bear, a rooster, an apple, grains, raisins, Mario and they used to have a giraffe and an elephant on the boxes of cereal. Frankly, I’m most offended by the grains. How dare they!
