Twitter Gets Cheeky After Ben & Jerry’s Declares Black Lives Matter

Ben & Jerry’s shared an open letter in support of the Black Lives Matter movement on Thursday, saying “Choosing to be silent in the face of such injustice is not an option.”

The company, which is based in Burlington, Vermont, said “systemic and institutionalized racism are the defining civil rights and social justice issues of our time,” and “that to be silent about the violence and threats to the lives and well-being of Black people is to be complicit in that violence and those threats.”

Soon after, #BenAndJerrysNewFlavor started trending on Twitter; users proposed new ice cream flavors inspired by the company’s statement.
