Was Tony The Tiger Driven Off Twitter By Unbelievably Horny Furries? by A. Feinberg

Oh my gawd. People in our culture ruin everything by sexualizing everything, even a cartoon mascot tiger for breakfast cereal.

All these people tweeting obscene comments at the Tiger mascot, who wear “furry” costumes, who fantasize about having sex with costumed people, are sickos. And losers.

Ultimately, these perverted moronic losers were Tweeting to the poor employee hired to track the cereal company’s social media. I feed sorry for whomever had to monitor that social media account to earn a paycheck.

Excerpts:

October 2018

If you’d like to ask Tony to “please frost my flakes, daddy,” you’re going have to send him a letter now like everyone else.

By Ashley Feinberg

…A little over two years ago, people were delighted to discover that, in the replies to every tweet from @realtonytiger, the official Tony the Tiger Twitter account, dozens of mascot-mad furries could be found begging the cereal tiger for sex. These tended to be pleas written in what grammarians refer to as the horny imperative: “@realtonytiger fist me tony,” one user wrote in 2015, “i love you.”

… One reply, sent several months after the tweet to which it was responding and several months before the account’s name change, was a bit more visually explicit than the usual fare.

Whether it was this particular tweet or just a general accumulation of years of sexual propositioning from the furry community, it does seem as if Kellogg’s decided a Tony-centric Twitter just wasn’t worth being asked to please frost my flakes, daddy a hundred times a day. Perhaps someone should inform the people who designed the actual cereal box.

I’ve emailed Kellogg’s for comment on their decision to change the Twitter handle, and while that email has been opened no less than 26 times, according to my mail tracking extension, I have yet to receive a response.

UPDATE: 8:30 p.m. — A Kellogg’s spokesperson has offered the following statement: “Thanks for reaching out. In July, the account was renamed to Frosted Flakes as we decided to broaden the content to more brand news.”
