After Mitch McConnell Named WholeFoods Magazine's Man of the Year, Twitter Users Call for Boycott [View all]

By Melissa Lemieux On 11/27/19 at 9:57 PM EST

WholeFoods Magazine has named Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell as its Man of the Year for championing a hemp growing project in his home state of Kentucky. Twitter users have cried foul, though, and now they are trying to boycott the Whole Foods Supermarkets chain, which has nothing to do with the magazine.

McConnell announced his victory in a tweet.

"Honored to be named @WholeFoodsMag 2019 Person of the Year," McConnell declared. "I was recognized as the most influential person in the natural products industry, specifically because of my work to legalize industrial #hemp for farmers in Kentucky and around the country."

WTF were they thinking?!?

On edit: I should clarify--I meant the Twitter boycotters. I wish they'd look before they leap. That said, I wonder how many health food enthusiasts also support mcconnell? I guess there might be a few, but sheesh.
