We’ve all been waiting to see how Coca-Cola would weigh in on the storming of the U.S. Capitol Wednesday. It turns out everyone at Coke is stunned and considers the rioting “an offense to the ideals of American democracy.” Better yet, with the election results now certified, Coke has faith that the U.S. will move forward together as one nation.

We wondered if Coca-Cola had weighed in on any of the rioting, looting, arson, and vandalism that took place this year, but the only thing that made their radar was the shooting of Rayshard Brooks in Atlanta by a police officer.
Building a better future means joining together as we move forward. We are supporting @100BlackMen as part of the effort to end systemic racism and bring true equality to all. This is just a first step. #BlackLivesMatter pic.twitter.com/KeCSrCemKc

Together we must stop rioting. It’s bad. Don’t do it.
Thank you [brand], very cool!

I was considering buying a Pepsi before you posted this statement. Thank you, The Coca-Cola Company.

If you’re serious, remove the Diet Coke button he installed on the Resolute desk

Yeah, Joe Biden’s transition team is going to have to pull that out and install the tapioca pudding button.
Thank you, brand.

Pepsi already tried something like this with one of the Kardashians a few years ago. It didnt work then either…

That ad about offering a cop a Pepsi was so bad that anarchists in Portland actually started hurling cans of Pepsi at police.
Enjoying a delicious @fanta while reading the news. Hope there are no historical surprises in this delicious cold beverage. 🙃

Shit, stunned by just what happened yesterday? Did y’all sleep through 2020??

When you guys get a chance can you forward me the statement in June after DC was literally on fire, stores looted and 100’s of cops injured?
— blitz_burgh (@blitz_burgh) January 7, 2021
Im looking for your tweets attacking the months long riots of last summer including looting, vandalism, assaults, murders and arson. That you people did not think those were an assault on whatever American values are left to devalue in the left is curious at the minimum.

Stunning and brave. Also, GFY.

Thank you, Coca Cola. I didn’t know how to process yesterday’s events until you posted this!!! I was waiting for your statement!!!

It used to be “Have a Coke and a smile.”
Now it’s “Have a Coke and some virtue signaling.”

We prefer the Kroger brand. It tastes good and doesn’t come with a lecture.

We’ll check to see if Pepsi fires off a response.
