Snickers Bows to the CCP, Apologizes for Recognizing Taiwan’s Independence

The parent company of the beloved Snickers Bar, Mars Wrigley, has issued an apology for “promotional material that referred to Taiwan as its own country,” according to the WSJ.

The apology comes after the company released an ad campaign across Asia for a limited edition Snickers bar only available to the “countries” of South Korea, Malaysia and Taiwan. The ad caused an uproar amongst social media users resulting in the video going viral.

In its second statement regarding the ad, Mars Wrigley wrote:

There is #OnlyOneChina in the world, and Taiwan is an inseparable part of Chinese territory.

Taiwan considers itself to be an independent nation, contrary to Chinese officials’ claims that it remains a territory of China.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi recently made headlines for her trip to Taiwan against the wishes of the CCP, which subsequently released a statement claiming the visit “gravely undermines China’s sovereignty and territorial integrity.”

China responded by firing missiles near Taiwanese shores.
