On Wednesday, the Girl Scouts posted a tweet congratulating Amy Coney Barrett on becoming the fifth woman ever appointed to the Supreme Court. Just a few hours later, it was deleted.
Immediately after posting, people started coming for the corporation for celebrating her appointment as an achievement for women everywhere, when much of the reason Republicans wanted to appoint Barrett were because of her anti-abortion views, looking to take rights away from women.
Girl Scouts went on to explain that the tweet was deleted because it was, “quickly viewed as a political and partisan statement.”
“Earlier today, we shared a post highlighting the five women who have been appointed to the Supreme Court. It was quickly viewed as a political and partisan statement which was not our intent and we have removed the post,” the statement read. “Girl Scouts of the USA is a nonpolitical, nonpartisan organization. We are neither red nor blue, but Girl Scout GREEN. We are here to lift up girls and women.”
It’s not Girl Scout cookie season right now, but whenever that rolls around, they just might see a drop in sales for this slip-up.
