Crayola Sex ‘Scandal,’ But Not Really

Crayola Sex ‘Scandal,’ But Not Really

by January 12, 2015 0 comments

While Lego may be inadvertently selling marijuana to kids (but in reality, not at all), another children’s entertainment company found itself some controversy. Over this past weekend, art supply company, Crayola, found itself a new marketing scheme, accidentally. The business’s official Facebook page usually contains tutorial guides on creating birthday cards, dinosaurs models from clay, or magic marker mustaches.

Usually, it’s the accidental Hitler stash from sniffing scented markers. Also, a bad habit to teach children.

This weekend however, the company’s Facebook page was wrought with sexual click bait articles and memes.

Lotsa garbage.

Nobody cared. Apparently, America doesn’t care where the worst of the internet comes from. It’s an inevitability that on social media someone is posting brain rotting pablum, so there was little to no outrage at Crayola posting articles with titles like These Are the Worst Kind Of Boobs and If Disney Was For Adults (just the “adultification” of everything then). Crayola issued only a vague response to what many are assuming was a hacker attack. The company released this statement:

Our sincere apologies to our Facebook community for the inappropriate and offensive posts you may have seen here today. Please be assured the official Crayola page has been restored. We can’t thank our fans enough for the feedback and support we received while working to resolve the issue … you truly are the best and we look forward to an exciting and creative 2015!

Many Facebook users commended the site for keeping their Sundays “colorful” and humorous. Even those who did complain, didn’t really complain, but instead responded jokingly “Where’s my crayons?”

I assume the bombardment of adult material is likely a publicity stunt to promote the new Crayola adult toys line: Scented Magic Marker Dildo anyone? Give it a sniff.
