LEGO reducing adverts for cop sets and the like

edited June 4 in Everything else LEGO
By now you may have seen the Lego Group Twitter page and their confirmation of reducing advertisements on LEGO sets depicting police sets (in order for the company to look good combating racism they reduced adverts showing people looting and robbing banks among other things) This fell pretty much as a bad PR move due to the fact it is not enough for the crowd LEGO wanted to please as they demanded that all figures have flesh heads (even if that goes against the imagination principals that their creators wanted) and the complete erradication of sets with cops, then there are those who think this is way to much pandering for PR points and that they will never buy another set. My statement to this is what has any company done to truly stand up to racism by denouncing how pir brothers and sisters are treated on places like China?

    All brands are bending the knee without actually doing anything now for change:

    I guess different people see things in different ways. 

    Whatever LEGO (or any other corporation) does will be too much for some and not enough for others.

    Wise words, LEGO donated $4 millions to children education and that is more than what most companies are doing blindly donating to extremist groups that are bailing out the same people who destroyed the cities. I would honestly activate the US RICO act and use the impounded funds to rebuild the destroyed communities during this tragedy.

    A lot of LEGO meme were hilariously made of something that now doesn't matter as politicians encouraged the riots but arrested us if we went to a store to buy LEGO sets.
