What is the controversy with the green M&M? According to the social media frenzy this past week, the green M&M was defined by her sexual appeal until Mars Chocolate selfishly took it away and stripped her of her feminine mystique, offending everyone who looked at her as the possible next Sports Illustrated level model.
Why are they getting rid of green M&M? The two female characters — formerly known as Ms. Green and Ms. Brown, but now dropping the title to de-emphasize gender — will team up as a “force supporting women, together throwing shine and not shade,” according to the announcement.
What’s the green M&M thing? Green is a spokescandy for multiple M&M’s flavors. She is an anthropomorphic M&M created with natural beauty beyond description with a green complexion, as her name implies. Ms. Green is an outward character, and always has something to say.
Did they change the green M&M? The most notable changes include the green M&M’s redesign, which will exchange the white heeled go-go boots she was given in 1997 for “cool, laid-back sneakers to reflect her effortless confidence.” Mars had received criticism for the green M&M’s sexy characterization.
