Donald Trump Jr. was being roasted on social media yesterday after he tweeted out a controversial meme comparing refugees to poisoned skittles.

Now Skittles responded — and people all across various social platforms are raving about its message.
The company that owns Skittles, Wrigley America, later released the following statement to media organisations:
“Skittles are candy. Refugees are people.
We don’t feel it is an appropriate analogy. We will respectfully refrain from further commentary as anything we say could be misinterpreted as marketing.”
and people are praising it on Twitter:
