Sesame Street Axed from Pampers
The internet has yet again caused an uproar big enough to make a major company fall to their knees.
For years diapers have been decorated with favorite characters. Now a diaper staple is being removed because of some angry parents.
If you don't have kids you would have never noticed this change, even if you do have kids there is a good chance you did not notice the change either. Over the course of the summer Pampers had been slowly removing the character of Sesame Street from their diapers. The reason behind this is mildly ridiculous.
According to Fox2Detroit.com, "P & G customer service representatives have reportedly stated the changes came after parents complained of too many male characters on the diapers."
Procter and Gamble did confirm the removal of Big Bird, Elmo, and Cookie Monster, but did not release an official statement concerning the reason.
