The most racist gift this holiday season
Just in time for the holidays, there’s a new racist Lego-knockoff set on the market from a conservative toy company, and Fox News is gleefully promoting it.
“Take a look at this: A conservative company introducing a new line of toys encouraging kids to build a wall with MAGA building blocks,” co-host Jillian Mele said on "Fox & Friends" Wednesday morning. “The set comes with a President Trump figurine and a ‘Make America Great Again’ hard hat.”
Conservative merchandise website Keep and Bear is selling the sets, which are very similar in concept and design to LEGO toys, for $30. One set shows a Trump-like LEGO figure with a hardhat standing in front of a grey brick wall. On the other side of the wall is a man in a sombrero holding maracas, clearly meant to illustrate that he is separating himself from Latin America.
LEGO did not immediately respond to VICE News’ request for comment about the knockoff toys. VICE News has also reached out to Chuck Norris about the use of his likeness and will update this story if he comments.
Fox has been promoting a $30 Lego rip-off kit that is literally 101 small grey bricks with a racist box design. pic.twitter.com/sTS5GhOEvM— Natalie Martinez (@natijomartinez) November 14, 2018
