ASAP Rocky’s trial on assault costs started in Sweden on Tuesday. The rapper has loads of followers pulling for him from afar, from the #JusticeForRocky marketing campaign to Kanye and Kim Kardashian enlisting Trump to plead with (learn: insult) Swedish officers. Now, Machine Gun Kelly has steered a brand new method to assist the Free ASAP motion: boycott Swedish Fish.
To be truthful, the thought didn’t actually come from the Resort Diablo rapper. As Vice factors out, a TMZ reporter caught up with MGK and requested if he would “boycott any of the Swedish merchandise” in protest of ASAP’s indictment. The cameraman listed Swedish Fish together with Ikea and Spotify, and whereas Machine Gun Kelly was hesitant about badmouthing the streaming service, he did say, “F*ck Swedish Fish, man.”
“Cancel Swedish Fish till ASAP’s free,” he added.
Sadly, such a transfer can be like the entire freedom fries embarrassment throughout the Iraq Conflict; fries aren’t truly French, and at this level, Swedish Fish aren’t truly Swedish. Although they had been invented by Swedish confectionary model Malaco within the ’50s, the gummy candies are actually made by American firm Mondelēz Worldwide. What’s extra, manufacturing takes place in factories positioned in Ontario, Canada and Turkey.
