If there’s one word that’s on the tip of everybody’s tongues this week, it’s CANDY. King trademarked the word in the EU and is trying to do the same in the US, and the internet has exploded as a result.

If you’ve ever wanted to see what an exploded internet looks like, you need look no further than Twitter. The community has been quite vocal about King’s trademarking actions this week – many even going so far as to add CANDY to their Twitter name in protest – and the @#$torm hasn’t died down yet.

It’s been only two days since King’s maneuvers first came to light (and one day since we learned about their opposition to The Banner Saga‘s trademark). Here’s the best of what the internet has had to say about it:
