You Can’t Make This Up: Terrence Williams Put His Own Picture on the Box of his Pancake Mix — Facebook Labeled it as ‘Racist’

We live in an upside-down world.
 
According to actor and comedian Terrence K. Williams, Facebook is now flagging accounts for buying and sharing pictures of his Pancake Mix, Cousin T’s.
 
“So according to Facebook, my Pancakes are racist!” Williams wrote on his Instagram Sunday.
 
“I’m on a 90-day restriction and now they are also flagging accounts for buying or sharing pictures of my Pancake Mix. This is absolutely crazy and it has everything to do with me being MAGA! I won’t apologize for it. Anyways go load up on some “racist” Pancakes,” he added.
 
Last month, Facebook restricted the comedian’s account for at least 90 days.
 
Williams shared the absurd information with his fans in a Facebook live session.
 
“I’m not happy right now. Facebook is threatening to delete my account in 90 days! If I don’t behave. Why are they coming for me? All I do is make people laugh and sell pancakes,” Williams explained.
 
“All I do is make people laugh. Is behaving does that mean being nice to Joe Biden? Does that mean being nice to Kamala Harris? They want me to behave. Then they said the independent fact checker said that all I do is post fake news. I tell jokes. How are you gonna fact-check a joke?” he quipped.
 
“So my face being on a pancake box is also racist. People’s accounts have been deemed for posting pictures of my pancake box. Now my account is about to be deleted in 90 days if I don’t behave like Facebook wants me to.”
 
“Hell no. I won’t stop selling pancakes, and I’m not taking my face off… Look at that racist black face. The hell is this racist? How am I racist to put my own face on the box? If I was a liberal, they would have me on every TV,” he added.
 
“This is harassment Facebook dinged My Pancake Box as racist because my face is on it. I won’t remove it. I added new flavors. Buckwheat, Chocolate Chip, & Blueberry is back in stock!” Williams wrote in the caption of his live video.
 
Watch the video:
 
It can be recalled Quaker Oats announced last 2020 that Aunt Jemima, its 131-year-old syrup, would be renamed and rebranded  amid outrage that the syrup is based on a “racial stereotype.”
 
“We recognize Aunt Jemima’s origins are based on a racial stereotype. While work has been done over the years to update the brand in a manner intended to be appropriate and respectful, we realize those changes are not enough,” Kristin Kroepfl, vice president and chief marketing officer of Quaker Foods North America, said in a press release.
 
Last 2021, Mars Food changed the name Uncle Ben to Ben’s Original in light of BLM protests after the death of George Floyd.
 
“It comes after frequent accusations of racism against Uncle Ben’s logo – an illustration of a black rice farmer – and name. In plantation-era US, white people in the southern states would often refer to a black man as ‘uncle’ to avoid using the more respectful ‘mister,’ Grocer reported.

Maybe a machine made the decision.  It’s ridiculous, of course, but so is a lot of what they are doing.

Nope... machines do what they are told.

So, whoever programmed that machine made a programming error, but that machine followed exactly what it was programmed to do... human error and all!!!

Paul Newman seems to have done alright with his picture on his products as did Orville Redenbacher and Col. Sanders with theirs.

Doesn’t it seem even more racist to allow older white men to use their own pictures but not a young Black man? It’s so bizarre.

LOL... now that you mention it... yes.

So, it's settled that Facebook is not only biased against Republicans, but also racist too! (* CHUCKLE *)
