    lol. People were calling this when Biden won.

    Not listening to the "we were attacked first!" crap.

    Our warmongering military doing what it has been doing for the bulk of the last 3 decades.
    Not sure how “Biden shouldn’t do this unilaterally it should be Congress” is twisted into an excuse for him to do it.

    But there is a difference between initiating an action against a regime and a retaliatory strike. There just is.

    Either way, Trump got plenty of excuses. “He didn’t start another war.” Yeah, but he increased our presence in each one despite claiming he was decreasing, dropped even more bombs, increased our commitment to the Saudi’s in their seeming genocide in Yemen, all while making the whole process even less transparent.

    Both parties are bad on this.

    Six Dr. Seuss books, including Scrambled Eggs Super! and If I Ran the Zoo, will stop being published because of 'racist and insensitive imagery' after Biden dropped author from Read Across America Day

    It comes just one day after President Biden omitted Dr. Seuss from Read Across America Day, which is held annually on the children's author's birthday on March 2.

    I know times are changing but man I think of what my grandparents would think of this.

    I don't understand why Biden is dropping Dr. Seuss from Read Across America Day. Six Seuss books will stop publication. The other 50 or so Seuss books are not affected...as of now.
    Dr. Seuss is not being cancelled. I'm not sure this is really a big deal, but I think it's silly that Dr. Seuss is being dropped from the program.

    I find it to be a very measured response from the publisher.

    I think Biden should have just read from one of the other books, and talked about how we can separate the art from the artist, that we are all flawed human beings, etc. etc. But it's never about that in politics, it's pandering and point keeping, which, while disappointing, we also hope the next POTUS will be above such nonsense, we shouldn't be surprised that we are disappointed.

    But, it's he didn't force the publisher to stop publishing it, and there is nothing preventing some other publisher from picking up the rights to print those six books.

    Not sure what the uproar is about.

    Hasbro is officially renaming the MR. POTATO HEAD brand to POTATO HEAD to better reflect the full line. But rest assured, the iconic MR. and MRS. POTATO HEAD characters aren’t going anywhere and will remain MR. and MRS. POTATO HEAD.

    Big fucking deal.

    Both sides of these issues are great at picking the worst examples to back their positions.

    NEW YORK (AP) — Is it Mr. Potato Head or not?

    Hasbro created confusion Thursday when it announced that it would drop the “Mr.” from the brand’s name in order to be more inclusive and so all could feel “welcome in the Potato Head world.” It also said it would sell a new playset this fall without the Mr. and Mrs. designations that will let kids create their own type of potato families, including two moms or two dads.

    But in a tweet later that afternoon, Hasbro clarified that while the brand is changing, the actual Mr. and Mrs. Potato Head characters will still live on and be sold in stores. In a picture posted on Twitter, the “Mr.” and “Mrs.” names are less prominently displayed at the bottom of the box, instead of the top.

    “While it was announced today that the POTATO HEAD brand name & logo are dropping the ‘MR.’ I yam proud to confirm that MR. & MRS. POTATO HEAD aren’t going anywhere and will remain MR. & MRS. POTATO HEAD,” the company tweeted.

    Hasbro appears to want to have it both ways: expand the brand, while not killing off its most iconic characters, which appeared in the “Toy Story” films.

    Kimberly Boyd, a senior vice president at Hasbro, said the intention of the brand name change was to be more inclusive and to have the characters still live within the Potato Head universe.

    “It created a lot of excitement,” she said about the reaction.

    GLAAD, an LGBTQ advocacy group, applauded the more inclusive Potato playset.

    Another recent over-hyped issue, apparently, is the disclaimer that Disney+ has put on before episodes of The Muppet Show. Again, I don't think this is a big deal. They're still airing all 100+ episodes of TMS. The Muppets weren't "cancelled" as DJTJ would have you believe.

    The press release explained it pretty clearly.

    Hasbro is officially renaming the MR. POTATO HEAD brand to POTATO HEAD to better reflect the full line. But rest assured, the iconic MR. and MRS. POTATO HEAD characters aren’t going anywhere and will remain MR. and MRS. POTATO HEAD.

    Launching this Fall, the CREATE YOUR POTATO HEAD FAMILY is a celebration of the many faces of families allowing kids to imagine and create their own Potato Head family with 2 large potato bodies, 1 small potato body, and 42 accessories. The possibilities to create your own families are endless with mixing and mashing all the parts and pieces...


    The press release even had pictures of the new boxes which had "Potato Head" on top as the brand, but the Mister still said Mr. Potato Head at the bottom and the Misses said Mrs. Potato Head at the bottom.

    I can't find any evidence that Hasbro changed their press release, and AP doesn't claim there was a change. So as far as I can tell, this all goes back to AP misinterpreting the Hasbro press release with this tweet.

    They've replaced the original story with the story you quoted that places the blame on Hasbro, but without proof. Again, go to the Hasbro press release, it's crystal clear what they are doing. Unless AP can show the press release was changed, this whole thing is on them (as well as the people who repeated it without checking to see if it's true).
