Tony The Tiger Turns The Tables On Horny Twitter ‘Furries’

It seems the Frosted Flakes icon Tony and Tiger is “pretty buff and athletic,” leading him to be targeted on Twitter in the most lascivious ways. This has reportedly been going on for quite some time. It seems the friendly champion of the complete healthy breakfast is being sexually harassed.

The real Tony the Tiger apparently does not find the many sexual innuendos from “furries” on Twitter to be the least bit gr-r-reat. In fact, he is now actively blocking such advances on the 140-character social media platform.

The Inquisitr reported a while back about a Tony the Tiger impostor, producing videos on YouTube with the iconic character in all kinds of modern day situations, including treating a prostitute and an abusive cop to a complete healthy breakfast.

The whole thing upset the real Tony at the time, but now he has a much bigger problem. The iconic, larger than life cartoon tiger is being sexually harassed – big time and on a regular basis.

Reportedly it all began quite a while back when the official Twitter account for Tony the Tiger was suddenly inundated with suggestive tweets from what are dubbed “furries.” At the time, Gawker Editor-in-Chief Alex Pareene mentioned that, “Tony is pretty buff and athletic,” and reportedly the annoyingly horny furries think so too. The following examples are among the least X-rated of the tweets.

All kinds of lewd and lascivious 140-character messages appeared on Tony the Tiger’s twitter feed, causing the popular and family-friendly cartoon character to be thoroughly embarrassed. If a tiger could blush, Tony would.

According to a report in the Huffington Post, the worst part of the whole thing is the self-proclaimed furries have not given up. They refuse to stop inundating poor Tony with suggestive tweets.

Tony the Tiger has officially now had enough of the lewd onslaught and is taking action against said horny furries in an effort to stop the offending sexual messages – by blocking them from his Twitter feed completely.

He has also, naturally, completely and utterly upset said furries who think they are now being targeted unfairly and are being “fursecuted.” The furries are hurting and have even come up with a brand new hashtag, #TonyTigerGate.

Anyone who tries to target Tony the Tiger with lewd messages is now instantly blocked on the social media platform. Not only that, those who have offended the stripey character in the past with sexual innuendos will pretty much get blocked too.

Some furries are already getting their revenge by threatening to eat a different breakfast cereal instead:

Other Twitter users are theorizing that by the time Tony the Tiger has blocked all the naughty furries, he might have zero followers left. Hopefully the popular Frosted Flakes product itself will continue to be consumed in homes all over the U.S.A., even with a boycott from the furries.
