It seems like we're living in an overly touchy day and age where people want to scream "RACIST!" at the drop of a hat. Like yes, I'm upset that the dude at Taco Bell skimped out of my Fire sauce, but that doesn't mean he dislikes Muslims. It seems like every time you flip on a news station, there's a new rant about how someone was offended by something we'd probably been looking at for years without even noticing.

There are some moments, however, that have to make you think, and this Twitter user noticed something on the box of his cereal that definitely seems kinda racist. I mean we kind of see it.

Like the fact that the only brown Corn Pop in a sea of anthropomorphized Corn Pops is working as a janitor while every other bit of cereal is having a blast. Seems a bit fishy, we question the artist for this.

Saladin admitted that he might've been overreacting.

But Kellogg's took his response seriously and even admitted themselves that it was kind of a bad look.

Of course a whole debate about the merits and social connotations of being a janitor began.

While some were looking at the box the right way.

So yeah, maybe it's messed up that the Corn Pop cleaning up after everyone else's mess is brown. But let's not forget that Kellogg's gave us this amazing corn-rows pun, in addition to delicious breakfast cereal. Thank you, Pops.
