Tic Tac turns down Trump: “Respect for all women”

Tic Tac wants nothing to do with Donald Trump’s lewd comments about women. Tic Tac – Italian confectionery group Ferrero’s most famous product in the world – joined the many people who continued to denounce Donald Trump’s comments after a leaked recording showed him making sexist remarks about women. Trump mentioned the Italian mints in the 2005 video – recently published by the Washington Post – in which he boasted about being able to grope women because of his fame. “I’ve got to use some Tic Tacs, just in case I start kissing her,Trump says in the recording, referring to an actress of Days of Our Lives. “You know I’m automatically attracted to beautiful” – he tells Access Hollywood’s anchor Billy Bush. “I just start kissing them. It’s like a magnet. Just kiss. I don’t even wait. And when you’re a star, they let you do it,” Trump added. “You can do anything.
But “Tic Tac respects all women,” the company replied on its official U.S. Twitter account. “We find the recent statements and behavior completely inappropriate and unacceptable.

FERRERO’S AMERICAN DREAM – The controversy between Tic Tac and Trump takes place in a moment when Ferrero group is ready to grow in the fundamental USA marketplace. An easier step after the proposed merger failure between the two confectionery giants Mondelez International and Hershey.

YOU CAN’T ALWAYS GET ROLLING STONES’ SONGS – Tic Tac is not the only one that turned down the tycoon. Among those dissociating from Trump, world reknown rock band The Rolling Stones denied using their songs to him. Last Summer Donald Trump closed out the Republican National Convention with The Rolling Stones’ “You Can’t Always Get What You Want.” The band took to Twitter to clarify that the song use is not an endorsement for Trump. “The Rolling Stones do not endorse Donald Trump. You Can’t Always Get What You Want was used without the band’s permission.” Before that, The Rolling Stones had continuously asked Trump to refrain from using their music. In May, Trump walked out for his Indiana primary victory speech to “Start Me Up,” with a rep for the band telling Billboard at the time “The Rolling Stones have never given permission to the Trump campaign to use their songs. The band have requested that they cease all use immediately.
