The Ben and Jerry’s ice cream company has gotten themselves into a public relations nightmare after a failed attempted to virtue signal.
The ice cream company that was founded in Vermont announced that they will no longer sell ice cream in “occupied Palestinian Territory,” presumed to be the West Bank settlements and Jewish neighborhoods of east Jerusalem.
It has been learned that Ben & Jerry’s Independent Board of Director wanted to boycott all of Israel however was stopped by the company’s CEO and parent company Unilever.
New Israeli Prime Minister Naftali Bennett spoke with Unilever’s CEO “emphasized that from the perspective of the State of Israel, this is an action that has severe consequences, including legal ones, and it will take strong action against any boycott directed against its citizens.”
The board said that they will not renew the license agreement with the independent manufacturer in Israel that distributes Ben & Jerry’s.
“The Company will not renew the license agreement when it expires next year,” the board said. “We have always been led by our values and remain committed to being a social justice company.”
You know what they say, “go woke, go broke.”
The ice cream company has created a diplomatic storm, conservatives have started to boycott and Democrats are joining.

The woman’s undergarment company Victoria’s Secret rebranding effort is already losing millions.
Former model for Victoria Secret Bridget Malcom said the company’s woke strategy is a “joke” and is “perforative.”
CEO Martin Waters said they are “moving from what men want to what women want.” So naturally (sarcasm) they’ve hired transgender model Valentina Sampaio (who claims to have diagnosed transgender at age 8), and is ditching all but three of their traditional models.
As former model Bridget Malcom stated the company is virtue signaling under the guise of giving woman what woman want.
