Ben & Jerry’s Is Banning Same-Flavored Scoops Until Australia Accepts Same-Sex Marriages

Ben & Jerry’s is fighting for major change in Austrailia. The ice cream company announced that they’re banning same-flavor scoops until same-sex marriages are legal in the country.

With 26 stores in the Land Down Under, Ben & Jerry’s hopes this statement will help push the country towards LGBTQ rights. It’s currently illegal for two men or two women to be married to one another in Australia.

The ice cream company is urging patrons to help set civil change in motion.

A Ben & Jerry’s Australia spokesperson told the Huffington Post in a statement that the “commitment is grounded in our company’s core values and a an unshakeable belief that everyone deserves full and equal civil rights.”

This means, if you’re hoping to get a double scoop of Chunky Monkey then you’re shit out of luck until equality is found for all Aussies.
