FOX NEWS – Ben & Jerry’s has never shied away from weighing in on prominent social and political causes. Now the Vermont-based creamery has officially weighed in one of America’s most contentious movements: Black Lives Matter.

“Black Lives Matter. Choosing to be silent in the face of such injustice is not an option.”

TSR STAFF: Thembi M. @ThembiTV_ on Instagram & Twitter _____________________ Earlier this week, we reported on Ben & Jerry's amazing statement in support of the #BlackLivesMatter movement, which stated: "All lives do matter, but all lives will not matter until black lives matter." _____________________ After their statement, everyone was pro Ben & Jerry's and even created 'Black Lives Matter' inspired ice cream flavors for the company. "Hands Up, Don't Scoop," and "Wish A Nougat Would" were some of our favorites. _____________________ That being said, somebody salty over at the Blue Lives Matter Organization took it upon themselves to encourage Americans to boycott Ben & Jerry's for 'publicly supporting Black Lives Matter.' _____________________ They state that Black Lives Matter is not a civil rights group, and Ben & Jerry's is misguided in promoting "the assassination and attempted assassination of police officers," by promoting the movement. _____________________ Apparently they think Ben & Jerry's support for the movement is an attack on law enforcement as they stated–More on this story at theshaderoom.com (Link in bio)
