being a stoopid mooslim is not the companies problem. pay for your own lab tests and find out, bronze age worshiper.

The Sheridan, Wyoming in Montana, you mean?

"I thought he was making this comment from Pakistan," Schaeffer said. "It wasn't a racist comment... It was just an honest mistake."

Somehow I doubt that if the person had asked if it was kosher he wouldn't have said "We don't ship to Israel"

Not only that, why the hell didn't he just answer the question? Would it be that hard to just call your supplier and find out? Nooo, he wasn't being racist (or bigoted, in this case) at all...

Rule 1 of customer service: don't be a dick no matter how tempting it is

/Rule 2 is "Don't be a smartass to newly promoted managers even if they used to be your friends"
//but that's another story

It's Montana. He's lucky his reply wasn't "Caveat Emptor, Ackmed".
 
2012-09-26 04:50:51 PM  
Technically it can come from pigs. After all the processing is done it is called gelatin.
 
2012-09-26 04:51:38 PM  
Wow. They have muslims in Wyoming? (I've been to Sheridan. Nice small town).

Apparently, it's hard just to give the farking answer and call it a day.
 
2012-09-26 09:15:30 PM  
I apologize if he took it wrong, that's not what I meant by it.

Man I hate when they say that. Nobody took it wrong, you said a dick thing, you were wrong. Grab a pair and accept it and apologize properly. It could have even been an excellent marketing opportunity.

If there is "pork gelatin" in your ice cream I don't need to be Muslim to not want to eat your product.  GAAAAAAAH!
 
*shivers*
 
2012-09-26 09:45:26 PM  
Yes, Mr. Farktarded CEO......if you're a Muslim, you must be in the Middle East, since there are no Muslims anywhere else in the world. You've quite clearly got a firm grasp on cultural geography.

*face palm*

What happens if a Muslim unknowingly consumes pork? Do they burst into flames like a vampire?

Relatively Obscure: Apparently, it's hard just to give the farking answer and call it a day.


Seriously. Why the hell couldn't he just answer the question? Who cares where the question came from? It was a legitimate question, and he should have just answered it without being a smartass about it.
 
2012-09-26 10:14:02 PM  
Wow, that's pretty pathetic. Not as bad as when McD's lied about adding beef juice to fries for years, but still bad.

Bashar and Asma's Infinite Playlist: What happens if a Muslim unknowingly consumes pork? Do they burst into flames like a vampire?


Nothing, apparently.

And in my search for knowledge I turned up this gem:

well i agree that you shouldnt do that. but at the same time, i work in an italian restaurant in which we flavor quite a few things with pancetta and prosciutto. (bacon and ham). when i explain tothe person that cannot eat what we have that includes these ingredients, they get angry at me! dont get angry at me because your god said you cant eat it. i didnt make the recipe, i just take your order and recommend liquor! jeez.

Thank you, Yahoo Answers.

I find something really hilarious about "i was already almost through with the [Dunkin Donuts chicken sandwich] when i noticed i was eating something like meat."
 
2012-09-26 10:55:53 PM  
Looks like the Facebook page might be history already.

I'm a vegetarian and would have a question about the use of gelatin, but I don't suppose they ship to Vegastan anyway.

It wasn't a racist comment because Muslim isn't a race.

Snark is fine when you know your audience. Customer service is a 24/7 practice. If you snark your customers, they will tell their friends.

I bet bet the CEO of Blue Bunny doesn't spend his time on Facebook answering questions about whether he makes pig-flavored ice cream.

I'm allergic to pork. The question is valid.

Do you live in Montanna?

'Cuz they don't deliver to Pakistan. Or so I'm told, pork-allergy-boy.

MadSkillz: I'm allergic to pork. The question is valid.


I'm allergic to seafood. And mushrooms. So I have to watch it closely. Today I had an Tai citrus salad. The dressing tasted funny. It was because it was anchovy based dressing.

I've been under the weather ever since...

Bigotry and capitalism don't mix. It's fundamentally stupid to hate your potential customers for superficial reasons.
 
2012-09-27 01:57:37 AM  
In TFA's sidebar there's a link to an earlier story: a history and profile of the ice cream company.

This is a lot of butthurt over a 100 year-old firm that employs 22 people.

FWIW, the second story says the firm delivers to Cody and Sheridan, Wyoming.

You cannot KNOWINGLY eat pork. and you are excused if you are forced, or this is a choice betweeen that or dying. Otherwise, you are fine.

That's why the fantasies about pork bullets, burying muslims in bacon, forcing them to eat pork sandwich to condemn them to hell, etc.. are all bullshiat.

He probably misread it as Sheridanwy, Pakistan.

I'm willing to give him the benefit of the doubt.
 
2012-09-27 02:07:09 AM  
the proper response would have been "we don't sell our delicious ice cream treats to anyone who wants to kill everyone who isn't just like them, so STFU and fark off".

Ice Cream don't have bacon as a ingredient

I BEEN CHEATED FOR YEARS NOW !!!

When I was working at the Bellagio, we had some Black Muslims employees who drove management bananas trying to get them to buy only Halal foods by threatening a lawsuit. Even the immigrant Muslims thought they were going over the top. There were a few nights when the only thing we had to eat was cold cereal.

I don't know about you but I intend to boycott this company's products.

The problem started with Facebook.

Everything after that is deserved.

The chopped beef at Rudy's BBQ isn't really beef, it's a combination of all their meats, including pork sausage. I have several Jewish and Muslim friends who refused to raise hell and better yet, refused to boycott Rudy's based on this. They simply continued to frequent Rudy's and stuck to the chicken and other "kosher*/halal*" items. The ignorant minority make more noise than the collective, silent majority.

*That's still debatable

The point really being Muslim, Christian, Jew, or Hindu, you don't want to know where gelatin comes from.
 
2012-09-27 02:17:26 AM  
If I called and he responded, "We don't deliver outside of Montana, certainly not Ireland" I would just hang up and go about my day.
Alerting the goddamn news about it wouldn't even come to mind.

Blue Bunny already has a product that's popular with Muslims.

The correct response would have been, "There is no god, so who farking cares?".
