Girl Scout cookie season is well underway and while that’s good news to anyone who looks forward to those boxes of tasty treats every year, it seems not everyone is happy to see them… at least on the west coast.

According to the Girl Scouts out that way - their parents and troop leaders - the girls are getting harassed by adults when they’re trying to make sales.

Earlier this month, Oona Miller Hanson, a Scouting parent in Los Angeles took to Twitter to post about cookie-seller harassment. “PSA for those buying Girl Scout cookies,” she writes. “Please do not make comments about weight gain or joke that you can’t have Thin Mints in the house or talk about your low-carb diet or yell at the girls for ‘poisoning’ people,” adding that those were actual things said to elementary school girls.

Hundreds replied to her tweet, many from adult women who say similar comments led them to unhealthy eating behaviors as kids.
