After the Girl Scouts tweeted about the new Supreme Court justices, people vowed to stop using thin mints this year or to bake them themselves.
The recently confirmed judge Amy Coney Barrett was the subject of a tweet deleted from the Girl Scout account on Wednesday.
They said that the content of the tweet (in the form of screenshots) angered people to the point that they were willing to separate from their favorite Girl Scout cookie.
“Congratulations to Amy Coney Barrett for being the fifth woman appointed by the Supreme Court since its inception in 1
The tweet was accompanied by an image showing the five justices-Sandra Day O’Connor, Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Sonia So Tomayor (Sonia Sotomayor), Elena Kagan (Elena Kagan) and Barrett.
Zach Braff, an actor who grew up in South Orange and Maplewood, was one of those tweets looking for alternatives to Girl Scout cookies.
He tweeted: “*Google,’how do you make your own thin mints’.”
People think they will use recipes to make cookies that are popular at home instead of buying them from local girl scouts. Some recommended brands will make similar cookies.
“I will miss you, mint,” @clarebydaybyday tweeted. “Oh wait, I won’t! Because now they taste like misogyny.”
When the Girl Scouts criticized the tweet, the organization responded in another deleted tweet that the organization was non-partisan (the same information was also posted on the Girl Scout Facebook account).
The tweet said: “Girl Scouts of America is a non-political, non-partisan organization.” “We are neither red nor blue, but Scout green. We are here to promote girls and women. If you want to debate partisanship Politics, please keep rolling.”
On Wednesday night, after the tweet was deleted, the Girl Scouts issued a statement on the public’s reaction to the first tweet.
The organization said: “Earlier today, we shared a post highlighting five women who were appointed to the Supreme Court.” “This was quickly seen as a political and partisan statement. This is not our intention. We The position has been deleted.”
The organization repeated: “The Girl Scouts of America is a non-political, non-partisan organization.” “We are neither red nor blue, but Scout green. We are here to promote girls and women.”
Those who shook Girl Scouts’ tweets included former Girl Scouts.
@_christiana____ tweeted: “At the age of 8, I did not stand outside every grocery store within a 50-mile radius of San Diego County, wearing a thin mint outfit and wearing this @girlscouts.”
Some critics of the Girl Scout tweets gave specific reasons why they opposed praising Barrett, pointing to Barrett’s record in gun control, women’s rights, women’s health and wellness.
Dr. Esther Choo, an associate professor at the Center for Emergency Medicine Policy and Research at Oregon Health and Science University, wrote on Twitter: “Girl Scouts have grown up and need comprehensive medical care.”
Choo, the founding member of Time’s Up Healthcare, which advocates fairness among healthcare workers, said that she will have no other most popular Girl Scout cookie.
She said: “It’s hard to accept cookies this year. Someone please share a Tagalog hacker.”
