posted by Hannity Staff - 3.02.21

House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy ripped his Democratic colleagues Tuesday during a fiery address; saying far-left lawmakers want to “outlaw Dr. Seuss” and tell Americans what they can and cannot say.

“Under the Constitution, we generally defer to states and counties to run elections. Democrats want to change that. First, they outlaw Dr. Seuss and now they want to tell us what to say,” said McCarthy.

posted by Hannity Staff - 3.02.21

At least six books written by Dr. Seuss -including ‘If I Ran the Zoo’ and others- will no longer be published due to “racist and insensitive imagery” going forward.

“These books portray people in ways that are hurtful and wrong,” Dr. Seuss Enterprises told The Associated Press

“Ceasing sales of these books is only part of our commitment and our broader plan to ensure Dr. Seuss Enterprises’ catalog represents and supports all communities and families,” it said.

“Dr. Seuss Enterprises listened and took feedback from our audiences including teachers, academics and specialists in the field as part of our review process. We then worked with a panel of experts, including educators, to review our catalog of titles,” adds the statement.

Update***

The Vice President of Global Brands for Hasbro spoke with Fast Company after revealing the company will drop ‘Mister’ from ‘Mister Potato Head,’ saying the toy was “limiting when it comes to both gender identity and family structure.”

“Culture has evolved,” Kimberly Boyd, Hasbro’s senior vice president of global brands, told Fast Company. “Kids want to be able to represent their own experiences. The way the brand currently exists — with the ‘Mr.’ and ‘Mrs.’ — is limiting when it comes to both gender identity and family structure.”

Original Story:

The Hasbro toy company confirmed this week they plan to drop the “Mister” from their classic character “Mr. Potato Head,” vowing to release a gender-neutral version called “Potato Head” later this year.

“Toy makers have been updating their classic brands to appeal to kids today. Barbie has shed its blonde image and now comes in multiple skin tones and body shapes. Thomas the Tank Engine added more girl characters. And American Girl is now selling a boy doll,” reports the Associated Press. “Hasbro said Mr. Potato Head, which has been around for about 70 years, needed a modern makeover.”

“Starting in the fall, Hasbro will sell Potato Head family kits. They’ll come with two non-gendered ‘adult’ potatoes, one ‘baby’ potato and 42 accessories,” writes Bloomberg News. 

 

“Hasbro, the company that makes the potato-shaped plastic toy, is giving the spud a gender neutral new name: Potato Head. The change will appear on boxes this year,” adds the AP.
