Rick Perry rips ‘environmental woke crowd’ for pushing ban on gas stoves: ‘This is about controlling your life’
Former Texas governor and former energy secretary Rick Perry blasts left-wing green energy groups pushing to ban gas stoves on ‘Kudlow.’
In a surprise move, beloved candy brand M&M’s announced Monday that its distinct "spokescandies" will be taking an "indefinite pause" and replaced with a new spokesperson, actress Maya Rudolph.
The company noted in a Twitter post that it had made some changes to its spokescandies in the past year – changes it thought no one would notice but ultimately broke the internet.
In January of last year, M&M’s parent company Mars Incorporated announced that its spokescandies would reimagined and redesigned in order to promote a "more dynamic and progressive world."
Part of that reimagining included a "more modern take on the looks of our beloved characters, as well as more nuanced personalities to underscore the importance of self-expression and power of community through storytelling."

In its Monday statement, M&M’s appeared to concede that such changes had ushered in controversy.
