Fisher-Price Is Not Releasing Protest-Themed Playset
A recent report by The Babylon Bee claims that the toymakers at Fisher-Price have created a protest-themed playset. The “My First Peaceful Protest” set is aimed towards “leftist parents and their kids,” according to the article.
It allegedly includes a kid-sized playhouse with assorted paint cans that can be used to spray paint slogans onto the house. The clubhouse is also made with cardboard that can be burned down easily in a protest. There are also items that can be used to simulate looting during a protest.
The Babylon Bee article has received over 22K shares and hundreds of comments as of this writing. Most are poking fun at the social justice protests using this false report. The article even has a false quote from a Fisher-Price toy designer glorifying arson.
