Kellogg, along with a growing list of other companies, has decided to cease advertising at Breitbart, media engine for the white nationalist and white supremacist movement, headed up by Trump’s chief advisor Steve Bannon. That has made a lot of former Tony the Tiger fans angry enough to seek out the Frosted Flakes Facebook page, of all things, and vent against the cartoon character and whoever the beleaugered intern is running that page (typical reply to posts prior to this: “That’s a G-G-G-Grrreat idea!”).
