Kellogg’s has responded to the two videos featuring Kellogg’s Frosted Flakes spokescat Tony the Tiger showing the beloved mascot beating women and helping prostitutes.
As reported in B&T weekly ad round up, the ad claims Tony the Tiger wants to help “people who were children 30 years ago in my Frosted Flakes commercials, and asked them what their problem are now in their 40s”.
