Ben & Jerry's Posts Anti-Message on 4th of July, Gets Blasted by Critics

On Tuesday, as the nation commemorated its 247th birthday, Ben & Jerry's ice cream shared a message on social media that expressed opposition towards America.

“Ah, the Fourth of July,” the company said in a statement. “Who doesn’t love a good parade, some tasty barbecue, and a stirring fireworks display? The only problem with all that, though, is that it can distract from an essential truth about this nation’s birth: The US was founded on stolen Indigenous land.”

“The U.S. exists on stolen land,” the statement continues. “We have to acknowledge that—today and every day.”

“Just announce the ESG flavor already lmao,” one popular Twitter account responded.

Senator Mike Lee (R-UT) tweeted, “Ben & Jerry’s, your once-good ice cream now sucks. You just guaranteed that I (a once-loyal customer) will never again consume a single pint of it.”

“When you suggest ‘returning’ the land on which our country has been built for centuries, what exactly do you imagine?” he continued. “Expungement of property rights? Repatriation of most Americans to Europe?”

Political commentator Joel M. Petlin pointed out the hypocrisy in their statement, tweeting, “Jewish students call for Ben & Jerry’s to evacuate ‘illegally occupied’ Vermont land.”

“Speaking of stolen land, the Abenaki Nation would like to have a word with @benandjerrys about the land under their headquarters that they are occupying in Vermont,” he said. “They really should commit to returning this stolen land, and naming their next flavor *Shameful Hypocrisy Crunch*”

Stay in your lane, Ben & Jerry's. You're here to sell ice cream, not throw shade at America, where your product happens to be sold.
