QAnon rep Marjorie Taylor Green takes sly swipe at gender-neutral Potato Head after transgender flag spat

MARJORIE Taylor Greene has taken a sarcastic dig at the all-new gender-neutral Potato Head after quarreling with a Capitol neighbor over a transgender flag.

The QAnon Rep was reacting to the decision by Hasbro, the company that makes the spud-shaped plastic toy, to give it a new non-binary name: Potato Head.

The 46-year-old far-right conspiracy theorist shared a photograph on Twitter that showed her installing a framed image of Mr and Mrs Potato Head outside her Capitol office. 

She tweeted: "I’ve always thought Mr. and Mrs. Potato Head were the sweetest couple!"

Hasbro announced yesterday that the "Mr Potato Head" brand would not just be called "Potato Head," because it needed a modern makeover.

The company tweeted: "Hold that Tot – your main spud, MR. POTATO HEAD isn’t going anywhere!

"While it was announced today that the POTATO HEAD brand name & logo are dropping the ‘MR.’”

Kimberly Boyd, an SVP and GM at Hasbro who works on the Potato Head brand, said the brand now wants to stop leaning so heavily into this traditional family structure, Fast Company reports.

She said: "Culture has evolved. Kids want to be able to represent their own experiences.

"The way the brand currently exists – with the 'Mr.' and 'Mrs.' – is limiting when it comes to both gender identity and family structure."

The brand aims to leave children free to do what feels more natural to them, without imposing limits on gender identity or expression.

Greene’s apparent stance against the toy company’s decision came after she placed a sign on the wall outside her office on Wednesday to ridicule Rep Marie Newman for putting up a transgender pride flag alongside her door.

Greene shared footage of herself putting up the sign to Twitter, which read: "These are TWO Genders: MALE & FEMALE "Trust The Science!"

Alongside the video - which has obtained more than 6million views - Greene wrote: "Our neighbor, @RepMarieNewman, wants to pass the so-called 'Equality' Act to destroy women’s rights and religious freedoms."

"Thought we’d put up ours so she can look at it every time she opens her door," she added, before concluding with a wink-face emoji and an American Flag.

Her actions were in response to Newman putting a transgender flag near her office door.
