UK Grocery Store Pulls Chocolate Ducks After Complaints of Racism

A British grocery store chain has pulled a brand of chocolate Easter ducklings from its shelves after being accused of racism.

The "Waitrose Trio of Chocolate Easter Ducklings" includes a white, milk and dark chocolate duck named Fluffy, Crispy and Ugly, respectively.

It was the name of the last and darkest duck that caused a major online stir with many questioning why it was that the darkest one was being called ugly.

Waitrose has since removed the chocolate ducklings from its stores, and issued an apology:

"We are very sorry for any upset caused by the name of this product. It was absolutely not our intention to cause any offense."
