Snickers Candy Company Apologizes to Communist China for Calling Taiwan a Country


The candy company that produces Snickers issued an apology to communist China for rightly saying in an advertisement that Taiwan is a country.

The company, Mars Wrigley, reportedly faced backlash from Chinese social media users after promoting a limited edition Snickers bar that was said to only be available in the “countries” of Malaysia, South Korea, and Taiwan, Reuters reported.
