Viral News

U.K. grocery chain Waitrose has apologized after being accused of racism over the names of three chocolate ducklings.

The “Waitrose Trio of Chocolate Easter Ducklings” contains a white, milk and dark chocolate version, which were named “Crispy,” “Fluffy” and “Ugly” respectively.

After complaints on social media, Waitrose pulled the product off the shelves

Waitrose has since apologized saying in a statement, “We are very sorry for any upset caused by the name of this product, it was absolutely not our intention to cause any offense,” 

“We removed the product from sale several weeks ago while we changed the labeling and our ducklings are now back on sale.”
