Oreo cookies have been one of the best-selling cookies in the United States. However, the brand faced wrath of netizens on its new images on social media. Many commented saying they have unfollowed Oreo’s official social media account and some asked to remove the post as soon as possible.
In one image, Oreo posted on the Twitter, a book is open and milk is poured on the book. In another image a book is closed with some Oreo cookies are put inside and pouring the milk on the book. The Oreo cookies wrote on the description of the social media while posting these two images that ‘Don't have a bookmark? Try using OREO cookies and milk instead’.
Since the pictures indicate that Oreo poured milk on the book netizens couldn’t stop showing disappointment and vented their anger saying it is disgraceful and asked to put the tweet done. Moreover, a Twitterati also asked Oreo to rethink their values.
Bad idea. Pull this tweet and rethink your values.— egregious (@trulyegregious) September 13, 2019
One even said that the image is intentional to grab the attention of many and get the post viral on the social media.
Here’s where I’m annoyed. You knew exactly the kind of feedback you’d get with this and that’s why you did it. Because a tweet that might go viral is all you wanted... even if it’s something disgraceful. Well congrats and all you did was piss me off every time I see an Oreo. pic.twitter.com/tIz4doHTUR— 𝐓𝐫𝐮𝐭𝐡 𝐒𝐜𝐚𝐫𝐞𝐬 𝐓𝐫𝐮𝐦𝐩 🖖🇺🇸 (@theinformedwin) September 13, 2019
However, Oreo also tried to clarify on Twitter that no books were harmed while producing the images.
