Lego Pulls All Marketing For Police Related Items Immediately
We might just see change coming sooner than expected as businesses become under fire. We've seen Wendy's, Pizza Hut, and Taco most recently come under fire for donations towards President Donald Trump.
Wendy's came out and made a statement that it wasn't taking any political sides offering to donate $500,000 to social justice. This is just the beginning as protests, candlelight vigils, and more continue to dominate the news cycle. Lego is next.
The company just sends out statements requesting all product listings and features for more than 30 LGO building sets, Minifigures, and accessories that include the following.
- Police Officers
- Emergency vehicles
- Building sets including Police stations, Fire Station, Police Dog Unit, Patrol Car, Fire Plane, Mobile Command Center, Police Highway Arrest and more.
There is even a LEGO City Donut Shop Opening set that includes police oriented figures being pulled from the marketing.
Not everyone is on the same page.
I can't get confirmation if they are pulling these items from shelves but it just looks like advertising for now. I'm sure this isn't going away and more businesses will be under review.
