Trader Joe’s is looking back. The grocery store chain now says that it will not change the name of the product line like Trader Ming did for approximately two weeks after issuing a statement saying it is updating these names. The first statement was made by spokesperson Kenya Friend-Daniel (Kenya Friend-Daniel) in response to a petition initiated by San Francisco high school student Briones Bedell. She wrote in the article: “Businessman Joe’s brand is racist because it alienates other cultures-it uses’Joe’ as the default’normal’, and other characters are not included.”
In a new statement reported by the Associated Press, trader Joe’s said: “We disagree that any of these labels are racist” and “we thought at the time – and still does – the product name It may be interesting and appreciates other cultures.” Badel said in an interview with the Associated Press that the response was “completely upending their previous commitment to delete names.” Friend-Daniel told The Associated Press that the company had deleted names , May delete more in the future, but only based on customer and employee feedback- Do not Online petition. Given that Trader Joe’s just… said so, this is a confusing reversal. Are customers angry with the culture of canceling traders, and does the company express anger at their anger?
