We learnt two things today. Firstly, there’s a man who goes to work and pretends to be Kellogg’s Frosties mascot Tony the Tiger on the internet, and secondly furries have been bombarding him with so much porn he had to ask them to stop.

The Guardian report that Tony made a heartfelt plea on Twitter for the public to stop sending him explicit images after he became the target of the ‘furry’ community on Twitter.

The sugary cereal mascot wrote:

I’m all for showing your stripes, feathers, etc. But let’s keep things gr-r-reat – & family-friendly if you could. Cubs could be watching

Furries refers to the fandom of people who identify with, roleplay as, and usually wear ‘fursuits’ to mimic anthropomorphised cartoon animals.

They claim it’s not a sex thing, or at least it’s not always a sex thing. Imagine Basil the Great Mouse Detective – you could probably appreciate him for his intellect as well as his weird man-mouse hybrid body.

As an anthropomorphised cartoon animal, Tony the Tiger has been very popular among furries and there’s a boatload of artwork featuring him in various compromising states. Most of the time the artwork is pure filth and we’re pretty sure Kellogg’s doesn’t want the brand to be associated with it – for example pictures of Tony and Coco the Monkey both clad in leather wanking over each other are pretty common.

So around three days ago Kellogg’s began blocking the furries, even ones who weren’t posting porn.

Reportedly most furries gave up tweeting at Tony and found a new hero. Where Tony the Tiger wasn’t a fan of the furries attention, Chester Cheetah, the anthropomorphic mascot of Cheetos, was much more welcoming of some love, and even returned his admirers attentions.

But some stayed with Tony, and ended up DDoSing the account with complaints about the blocking, requests for sex and a shit tonne of porn.

An anonymous Kellogg’s spokesperson told us:

Tony’s been quite upset about the whole thing but he would like to remind everyone that Frosties taste Gr-r-eat!

Sounds like Tony wasn’t having a Gr-r-eat day…
