Hasbro has come to their senses and reversed their decision on Mr. Potato Head.
After formally announcing the plastic toy would be gender neutral, the company received negative feedback and ridicule.
In a tweet Hasbro said “Hold that Tot – your main spud, MR. POTATO HEAD isn’t going anywhere! 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.”
Here are just some of the social media memes that have been making the rounds on the internet.
