Mario Lopez Roasts Gavin Newsom's Skittles Ban: 'Crime is through the roof'

Hollywood actor Mario Lopez expressed strong criticism towards California's Democratic Governor Gavin Newsom and other state officials regarding the so-called "Skittles ban". This ban would prevent the sale of any candy in California containing red dye No. 3. This comes at a time when California faces increasing concerns about crime and homelessness.

The 50-year-old actor shared his thoughts on platform X on Monday, referencing a headline which stated, “California becomes the first U.S. state to ban Skittles and 12,000 additional products for cancer-causing additives.” This comes after Newsom endorsed the California Food Safety Act, Assembly Bill 418.

“Crime is through the roof, worst drug epidemic ever & homelessness at an all time high in CA… Let’s focus on Skittles,” Lopez wrote.


The legislation bans the sale, distribution, or production of food items with red dye No. 3, brominated vegetable oil, potassium bromate, and propylparaben. These ingredients are commonly found in candies, cereals, sodas, and other processed foods available in the state.

Jesse Gabriel, the head of the state Assembly Committee on Privacy and Consumer Protection, commended the governor's decision.

According to the Environmental Working Group’s Eat Well Guide, Red dye No. 3 can be found in candies such as Skittles, Trolli gummies, and Nerds, as well as in instant rice and potato items, packaged cake mixes, and certain protein shakes.
