Tic Tac joined the many people who, in droves on Saturday, continued to denounce Donald Trump’s comments after a leaked recording showed him making lewd comments about women.
“Tic Tac respects all women,” the company said on its official U.S. Twitter account. “We find the recent statements and behavior completely inappropriate and unacceptable.”
Trump mentioned the artificially flavored mints in the leaked 2005 conversation—published Friday by the Washington Post—in which he boasted about being able to grope women because of his fame.
“I’ve got to use some Tic Tacs, just in case I start kissing her,” Trump says in the recording, referring to an actress waiting to escort him to the set of Days of Our Lives for a cameo. “You know I’m automatically attracted to beautiful — I just start kissing them. It’s like a magnet. Just kiss. I don’t even wait.”
“And when you’re a star, they let you do it,” Trump added. “You can do anything.”
