Snickers maker apologizes to China for suggesting Taiwan is a country,An ad for a Snickers bar in China caused an international flip.

The US-based candy giant that makes Snickers apologized to China on Friday for suggesting in an advertisement that Taiwan is a country.

Mars Wrigley had just launched a limited edition Snickers bar in the country and advised that the chocolate bar was only available in the countries of South Korea, Malaysia, and Taiwan, according to a Reuters report.

The statement went viral on Chinese social media platforms, including Weibo.

Mars Wrigley then published an apology and said it had revised the language in its ad, according to the report.

The controversy comes on the heels of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s trip to the tiny island this week and China’s visceral reaction to the visit,
including sanctioning the speaker and setting off military exercises.
