chrissmithonair Are the public going to demand the family change their name to, will they force and shame a family to also change their name. 🤷‍♂️ chrissmithonair Hey conservative dudes and dudesses, change is the only constant. Relax, it’s not the end of civilisation. chrissmithonair the new name sucks,I don't know who come up with that but they should go back to the drawing board,or just keep the real name named after the maker of the cheese.

chrissmithonair Never bought it when it was coon and changing it's name won't make any difference I especially won't because it's halal. chrissmithonair What a heck Coon means anyway? I only know it means a big cat in 'Merica. chrissmithonair I will not be buying it anymore chrissmithonair Products change their name all the time. No big deal.

chrissmithonair Will never buy this cheese again !!!! chrissmithonair Detest this kind of woke-ness. NOT buying this cheese ever again. chrissmithonair It still tastes the same. chrissmithonair OH? chrissmithonair You just lost a consumer. chrissmithonair I’ll never buy it again. chrissmithonair National importance to serve pr

chrissmithonair People named Blackman, should now be worried about what they will need to be renamed now! chrissmithonair Nope. Good move. chrissmithonair Sorry, I will not buy this brand anymore, it's a disgrace we succumb to these people and their narrow minded views. chrissmithonair Crap cheese anyway

chrissmithonair Coonabarabran, Coonamble, Coonawrra. Let's get busy chrissmithonair A lesson on woke business practice. How to destroy a brand. Who will know or remember Cheer. The fools who own Coin have handed over market share to Bega cheese. I won't by Cheer on principle. I won't consume woke products or services.

chrissmithonair I will not buy it chrissmithonair Absolutely pathetic for a company that size to give in to a whining bludging Aboriginal. chrissmithonair No longer buy it. It was a surname for Gods sake chrissmithonair I'm sensing some manufactured rage. chrissmithonair Hitler's favourite. chrissmithonair Bloody racist cheese.

chrissmithonair foock the people make them change the original name we know you are cheer people nothing going to change that you get it chrissmithonair Its not politically correct, its just correct Outdated brand name with obvious historical racial associations. Shit gets rebranded all the time. What's actually pathetic is skynews. In general

chrissmithonair What pressure? Maybe market pressure, I sure as shit haven’t seen a large or even small public campaign to change the name. Clickbait conservative baiting bottom feeding turd of a story. Bout what I’d expect really. chrissmithonair They certainly picked a 'cheesy' new name for it... chrissmithonair I like the sound of Cheer. It's cheery.

chrissmithonair Obsolete name that no longer has a place in modern society. About time… chrissmithonair Hitting the important issues here - you are a step away from producing an alien got me pregnant stories chrissmithonair The company has lost me. chrissmithonair Oooh no we have changed the name of a,cheese what next.Will the vatican be be renamed the golden palace of child rape deniers.

chrissmithonair Good grief..next we will all be dreaming of a rainbow Christmas. chrissmithonair chrissmithonair I will NEVER buy it again. chrissmithonair is definitely the Karen of the news world chrissmithonair Woke tasty. Fuck off!! 😂😂 MortyAUS chrissmithonair I prefer Devondale 👌🏼 chrissmithonair Let me guess, the Sky News host is white.

chrissmithonair Pathetic really... chrissmithonair Ridiculous ..,the people using this word most today are leftists abusing conservative black people... chrissmithonair Do elephants like cheese ? chrissmithonair yes, this was the single biggest issue Indigenous Australians faced. Another low hanging fruit for the SJW, feel better about them selves crowd, rather than address real issues in Aboriginal communities such as Violence, drug and alcohol abuse, health etc I bet they all cheered

chrissmithonair All Cheeses Matter chrissmithonair Who cares. Looks the same MortyAUS chrissmithonair Lookout coonabarabran chrissmithonair Absolute farce chrissmithonair All these people saying not buying it, it won’t matter, millions will chrissmithonair When have you ever run a program in support of black rights chrissmithonair ? Never. So why do you sound so righteous?

chrissmithonair Thank goodness Sky is not an iconic or respected brand. You get to keep your offensive name! auspol MurdochFreeAustralia chrissmithonair Hopefully it’s succumb to flavour. chrissmithonair Iconic? Apparently, you can make this stuff up. chrissmithonair Ridiculous chrissmithonair Not buying it anymore

chrissmithonair Child poverty, homelessness, wealth inequality, aged care, climate change? No. Chris thinks cheese is the most pressing issue of our time Left_of_Labor chrissmithonair Majority rules dickheads. chrissmithonair Funny all you have to do to make screeching Murdoch losers & their drone viewers cry is to change the name of cheese. Get a grip

Left_of_Labor chrissmithonair Oh does he? The same bloke who constantly bleats about letting the free market decide Until the same free market does something he doesn't like So desperate for attention chrissmithonair It's so disappointing that is still on air. chrissmithonair Who cares? chrissmithonair Did anyone consult Peter Russell Clarke?

chrissmithonair What in a name... when its your name? chrissmithonair So DUMB! chrissmithonair Im offended... 🥴😏 chrissmithonair FatherBob chrissmithonair It’s CHEESE, you arsehats! And shit cheese at that. Cheers. FatherBob chrissmithonair Chris Smith sounds like a bit of a delicate snowflake if he finds this upsetting...

FatherBob chrissmithonair Your sky news host is a racist. chrissmithonair Why didn't they just rename it 'Cooee' for Aussie customers? chrissmithonair EWC would have been a better choice as a name the name they have chosen is about as good as the cheese FatherBob chrissmithonair I don’t care that they changed the name but the new one is atrocious - cheer? They paid people to come up with that or ran a competition? Terrible! Even Cheerze might have worked... (I copyright that)

chrissmithonair . I congratulate the makers of coon cheese. Growing up in the 80s the word was a derogatory racist term for Aboriginals. But thanks to the branding & promotion of coon as cheese, the offensive meaning is now extinct & only oldies would remember it. What an achievement. . FatherBob chrissmithonair It’s cheese don’t be snowflakes

chrissmithonair Let's see how their share price goes. chrissmithonair This is just bs! There’s nothing racist about it. It was named after a guy with the surname of Coon! Such bs! overthetop chrissmithonair If this Sky News host says so disappointing on that then that individual seems very easily disappointed and overly sensitive. Names changes occur all the time and for better. Why fear change so much

chrissmithonair Rename it ‘nigger’ chrissmithonair So everyone whose name is coon must now change their name too. And never open a business in their name. Now let's get started on anyone or business with the name Black! cooncheese should have become cocoon cheese 😂👍 chrissmithonair It was the founders name FFS do the want the family to change there name as well ?

chrissmithonair Definitely worth losing your shit over. chrissmithonair So what's the big deal? chrissmithonair Tell us Chris. What is the preferred cheese of alcoholic sexual molesters? chrissmithonair This mfer is calling cheese slices iconic. If this is a big concern for you you're outing yourself.

chrissmithonair The word “Coon” is a highly offensive term to people of colour whether you realize it or not. I guess you’ve never been racially vilified Smith? There is a very good reason to change the name as it has a derogatory connotation to some. Live with it - it’s the same cheese. chrissmithonair But isn’t a cheer what Right Wight Fascist football & rugby fans do when a team scores This isn’t safe!!!!

chrissmithonair Anyone who pays full price premium for any branded cheese ( regardless of the name) is mad! All homebrand cheese is exactly the same and the expensive branded stuff. chrissmithonair Absolutely a joke chrissmithonair Get a life wingnuts, it's still the same frigging cheese. The old name upset some indigenous people, so the company did the nice thing and changed it. Why would such a trivial thing upset you?

chrissmithonair It’s purely a business decision. It’s not some minority of ‘woke’ people forcing them into this. Most people would prefer not to stubbornly insist on maintaining offensive names. Except the right wing culture warriors at News Corp. No one else cares. Move on. chrissmithonair Total bullshit

chrissmithonair 'All Cheeses matter' said the deputy PM chrissmithonair what about all the people whose surname is Coon? should they change their name by depol? chrissmithonair chrissmithonair Weak as piss, im not buying their shit anymore. This woke BS can fk off chrissmithonair To those in support of this change - may your family line become a racial slur and all trace of your existence expunged from history.

chrissmithonair Yet another company that will be broke in weeks ... a victim of the leftist hysteria gripping the world ... chrissmithonair You have 24 hours to revert it back to coon cheese. chrissmithonair Chris Smith: Marketing Guru. Who can barely hang on to a job because of sexual harassment issues etc has a problem with 'wokeness' All adds up !!

chrissmithonair Why do you care? Is it your business? No! So, pull ya head in. chrissmithonair Why not call it Yid cheese and see what the Jews think of that? chrissmithonair The should have called it Nooc cheese chrissmithonair Couldn't give a rat's arse frankly Chrissie. How about you breathe into a paper bag for a bit until you calm down you poor petal. FMD ... imagine being triggered so hard by something so minor. 🤣🤣🤣

chrissmithonair I hope all the Coons in the white pages are googling cool surnames. As 2021 is your year to be bold. That goes for you too Mr and Mrs Black. Google the crap out of it. Ps it will only be ok for a few years, so go 🥜!! chrissmithonair Empathetic & respectful I would say. chrissmithonair Personally ill still call it Coon cheese.

chrissmithonair Disgusting cancel culture chrissmithonair Keep your pants on, Chris. I'm sure they'll serve a wide variety of cheese at the next Christmas party. chrissmithonair It's quite pathetic.. fear is a powerful motivator for cuckdom. chrissmithonair Agreed. Will always be Coon cheese to me.
