"All-natural skin care company Burt’s Bees has a reputation for being socially conscious reputation, but after many claimed that a description written on a jar of its moisturizer encourages the harassment of women, the cosmetics maker issued an apology.

Güd, a division of Burt’s Bees, had discontinued its Vanilla Flame Body Butter in January; however, remaining stock was placed in the outlet section of its website and is still being sold via other retailers. The controversial label reads,“Soak in the moisturizing seductiveness of shea butter and indulge in the scent of vanilla and rice milk. And let the catcalling commence.”

On Thursday, 29-year-old Colleen Kiphart, a communications expert (she declined to provide her city and state), who bought the Vanilla Flame Body Butter, tweeted an excerpt from the label to Hollaback, an anti-street-harassment group and this message: "On my @gudhappens is @burtsbees body butter. Catcalling is a violence against women." She tells Yahoo Shine, "I was offended but didn't know if I was overreacting, so I tweeted to Hollaback for perspective."

Diversity fruitcakes consider any speech they don't favor to be hate speech and violence. Fruitcake victim cultists consider mere words to be equivalent to violence; a hysteria of the weak-minded.

Diversity fruitcakes are behind the federal hate speech prosecutions and speech codes on college campuses.

Their hysteria has resulted in yet another federal law for special privilege people:

Who makes cat calls to ugly women? The product is not intended to make you look like burnt boot.
