Mar 2, 2023 | Political News

In honor of International Women’s Day, Hershey Canada has launched five limited edition HER for SHE chocolate bars which are supposed to feature young, inspirational Canadian women who are building a positive future, but the company is facing backlash after deciding to include a biological male in their line-up.

Fae Johnstone, a trans-identified male who has spoken publicly about wanting women with differing political views to be “so vilified” that they don’t dare speak, announced the exciting news on Twitter Wednesday, and not long after, the hashtag #BoycottHershey started to trend as women all over the world expressed their resentment about yet another biological male being honored on a day that is supposed to celebrate women.
