It was reported earlier this week that the owners of Krispy Kreme …
Have family ties to Nazi Germany back in WWII. According to NBC News “The claims against the Reimann family were made Sunday in a four-page report by the German tabloid Bild, and confirmed by family spokesman Peter Harf.”
The family feels so ashamed to the point, where they’re planning to donate a whopping 11.3 million dollars to a charity that they’ve yet to choose. In addition to the donation, the family will publish a public document supporting the findings of a German tabloid who unearthed the story.
Of course with it being 2019, I’m not shocked by any of this. Considering the college admissions scandal plaguing USC. Plus the subsequent R Kelly, and Jussie Smollett sagas playing out in the media. However people rushing to crush this family for its past is just ridiculous in my personal opinion.
I believe that people have the right to make mistakes in life. Furthermore the family now in 2019 doesn’t support a Nazi resurrection movement (as far as we know). So just because you have family ties to people who made bad decisions 8 generations before you, doesn’t mean you should have to pay for those bad decisions.
I think this issue is something that is really dumbing down society in 2019. If you go back in your family ancestry, you’ll probably find some of your own kin who’ve made some pretty dumb decisions. Sure there were some bright spots from time to time. However for the most part they were degenerates who believed in some pretty radical, racial, and ridiculous stuff.
To skewer a family on social media, because you have a blue check mark next to your twitter handle is a joke in my opinion. Want to do us all a favor. Get off of twitter and go help progress humanity instead of condemning a family for their ancestors past transgressions.
