Ben & Jerry’s Apologizes For Linsanity Flavor

Print More

A Ben & Jerry’s franchise located in Harvard Square in Cambridge has apologized for selling a limited-release ice cream flavor intended to honor Harvard graduate and New York Knicks overnight-sensation Jeremy Lin.

The flavor, which originally included pieces of fortune cookies, received negative feedback from people upset about Asian stereotypes.

Lin was born in the US, but his parents emigrated from Taiwan.

The Cambridge shop apologized over the weekend via Twitter, and it has discontinued the flavor.
