I find it weird that people have an opinion on the marketing decisions of companies.
I find it weird that companies base their marketing on virtue signalling rather the views of their consumers.

The poll now has 50,400 votes.

Do you think the Coon brand name should be changed? The result still running at

Yes 6%.
No 94%.

Virtue signalling about virtue signalling. So meta.

Who says they did?

Coon is a multi-million dollar brand. It’s very unlikely that its owners have ditched it without far more extensive and scientific market research than an untargeted one-question internet poll.

Leftie statue punchers doing what they do best.. pointless symbolism.

Massive problems with alcohol and drug abuse in Aboriginal communities. Intergenerational poverty. Completely disconnected from the economy. Kids suffering sexual abuse.

The solution? Rename some cheese!!
Then pat themselves on the back for making the world a better place, before moving on to the next thing they can get offended about

We are living in a world where corporate virtue signalling has a higher value than profits.

I wouldn't claim a Daily Telegraph poll is representative but a 94% vote against changing the brand name might indicate the company got the public mood wrong. Or knew it but chose to ignore it.

I'd imagine this will be like banning climbing Uluru there will be a small section of people annoyed at the whole thing and it will soon be forgotten. Did those guerilla climbs of the rock ever happen?

Paddy Uluru custodian himself of the rock was not phased about climbing it, plenty business lost there, much more than a small section.

Probably shopping right now, buying the last cheeses with Coon wrapping (helping the company they're sooking over).

The CEO is racist and was forced to resign over the comments, which Tia distanced herself from.
What about the athletes using the N word in group chat?

I doubt the employees who make Coon cheese are racist, but the name of their product must be changed nonetheless.

The only way I see your proposition working is if the brand name CrossFit is changed to something less offensive.
