Mentally deranged leftists are angry that toy maker Lego hasn’t acted woke enough after the company clarified that it had only withdrawn advertising for certain products associated with police and not the toys themselves, while others seriously argued that there are too many Lego police in Lego City.
Like many other companies, Lego attempted to glom on to the unrest as a way of virtue signalling. The company asked affiliates to stop all marketing of the Lego City playsets that included police officers, as well as first responders.
The Toy Book noted that an email from Lego requested “removal of product listings and features for more than 30 LEGO building sets, Minifigures, and accessories that include representation of police officers, firefighters, criminals, emergency vehicles, and buildings. Sets include the LEGO City Police Station, Fire Station, Police Dog Unit, Patrol Car, Fire Plane, Mobile Command Center, Police Highway Arrest, and many more. Even the LEGO City Donut Shop Opening set — which includes Police Officer “Duke DeTain” and “Crook” Minifigures — roleplay items including a Police Handcuffs & Badge Set, and the adult builder LEGO Creator version of The White House made the removal list.”
