Who would have thought that a makeover of the M&M’s characters would cause such Earth-shattering controversy and reach such a tragic end (we use the word ‘tragic’ loosely)? Around a year ago, we reported with some amusement on the fury that greeted the confectionery brand’s decision to make a few tweaks to its character designs. We thought the anger would last a few days. But it didn’t.

At the centre of the controversy is the green M&M. Previously partial to wearing ‘sexy’ knee-high boots, she was given a more relaxed sporty look. That caused dismay among those who apparently liked finding a chocolate sexy, including American TV host Tucker Carlson (see below).
