The confectionery company that produces Snickers has apologized to Communist China for correctly saying in an advertisement that Taiwan is a country.
The company, Mars Wrigley, has reportedly faced backlash from Chinese social media users after promoting a limited-edition Snickers bar that would only be available in ‘countries’ of Malaysia, Korea South and Taiwan, Reuters reported.
Chinese state newspaper world times reported that the company “apologized for marking the island of Taiwan as a country, saying its local team has checked and aligned the official site and social media accounts to ensure accurate content.”
“Snickers owner Mars Wrigley said he respects China [national] sovereignty and territorial integrity, world times tweeted.

The company posted its apology on its Snickers China Weibo account, Reuters added.
As Breitbart News previously reported, “Taiwan is a sovereign nation with a democratic government which the Chinese Communist Party falsely claims is a “province” of China. America, thanks to the policies of former President Jimmy Carter, engages in this lie to maintain diplomatic relations with its main geopolitical threat.
Mars Wrigley’s capitulation to the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) comes shortly after House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) spent about 7 p.m. visiting Taiwan this week. Pelosi met with President Tsai Ing-wen and visited the country’s human rights museum, among other activities.
The Chinese government responded to Pelosi’s trip by launching three-day military exercises in the airspace and waters surrounding Taiwan. On Friday, the Chinese Foreign Ministry also announced it. would take eight actions against the Biden administration, including halting “climate” talks and military coordination, in response to Pelosi’s trip to Taiwan.
