Fat-Shamers attack Krispy Kreme for Free Donut for COVID Vaccine Promotion

Leftist corporation Krispy Kreme suffered a backlash from fat-shamers after offering a free dount for customers who took the coronavirus vaccine.

Last week, the fast food donut giant started its coronavirus promo, but it wasn’t long until leftists attacked the chain for promoting a supposedly healthy thing (the vaccine) by giving away something that would make you fat (the donut).

As People magazine noted:

However, many social media users called out Krispy Kreme in the following days and pointed out that obesity is a growing problem for Americans and is a risk factor for COVID-19. (According to the CDC, obesity was prevalent in 42.4 percent of Americans in 2017 to 2018).

Yeah, because everyone is going to become “obese” by a single free donut.

After days of this nonsense, Krispy Kreme felt the need to respond to the attacks.

In an interview with Yahoo! Finance on Friday, CEO Mike Tattersfield defended the company’s intentions with the controversial promotion deal. “We’re a sweet treat company, [and] if folks don’t want to visit a donut shop, they don’t have to,” said Tattersfield.

Tattersfield further pushed back against the criticism and said that if “folks that want to get a vaccine, if they decide to combine a Krispy Kreme pickup [for] a doughnut, they can. That’s how we look at it… generosity.”

“I drop off a lot of doughnuts to the healthcare system. They’re very appreciative, given the days that they have to work…people are always looking for a little sweet treat break. It’s okay,” he said.

See what happens when you start jumping into social campaigns instead of just frikkin selling your damn donuts?

Every corporation should stop this social justice crap. Just sell you stuff. We don’t need you to tell us what we should do with our lives.
