Toymaker Hasbro announced yesterday that they are dropping the ‘Mr’ from the Mr Potato Head brand, and memes are now flooding Twitter.
On Thursday, Hasbro announced that its Mr Potato Head toy is having a rebrand and becoming gender-neutral, revealing that they are dropping the ‘Mr’ from its title.
As reported by CNN, the company said: “Hasbro is making sure all feel welcome in the Potato Head world by officially dropping the Mr. from the Mr. Potato Head brand name and logo to promote gender equality and inclusion.”
The toys will now just be known as ‘potato head’ and the change will appear on boxes later this year.
However, after much confusion, they clarified in a tweet that ‘Mr’ is being removed from the brand name but not from the actual toys, meaning that Mr and Mrs Potato Head will still be available to buy.
Now, memes are flooding Twitter as people react to the news. Here are some of the funniest…
