The Russians hate Obama so much they have named a chocolate bar after him.
“Obamka” bars (the -ka ending is a diminutive) are chocolate coated vanilla bars and feature an African boy with an earring on them.
The makers of the product said that the ‘Little Obama’ bars aren’t meant to be a slight at the U.S. President but simply meant to appeal to children.
A US official who spoke to Reuters, though, made it clear that people should not be fooled. The Russians don’t like Obama or America and “regularly” show it in ways like this.
“While I haven’t seen this particular product for sale, we are disappointed by the media-driven anti-Americanism that has become so prevalent in Russia over the past few years, particularly when it takes on a discriminatory or racist bent,” the unnamed official said.
Reuters also reports that things are so bad, there is one cafe in Siberia that uses Obama-printed toilet paper.
