Fox News anchor Will Cain went on a tirade about the new rainbow "Everyone Is Awesome!" Lego LGBTQ+ Pride set, which features 11 figures of ambiguous gender/personage in all the colors of the inclusive Pride flag to promote trans and BIPOC inclusivity within the spectrum of Pride.
The 2018 redesign—seen below including BIPOC and trans pride stripes—addressed issues of exclusion, racism and transphobia in traditional Pride events.

The updated Pride flag was designed by Portland, Oregon artist Daniel Quasar after being funded through a Kickstarter campaign.
Many called for the updated flag to become the new symbol of the LGBTQ+ community.
Cain's Fox News rant didn’t include any of this information however.
Instead, he alleged, among other things, the Lego minifigures bore some link to the Ku Klux Klan.
You can see Cain's tirade here:
"This separation into color-coding, living up to every stereotype from hairstyle to skin color," Cain ranted, "looks like it could have been designed by David Duke."
David Duke, the former Grand Wizard of the Ku Klux Klan, is a renowned racist and neo-Nazi who endorsed former President Donald Trump for re-election in 2020 and re-registered as a Republican in 2016, after holding no political affiliation for close to 15 years, in order to vote for Trump—a noted darling of Fox News.
Fox News—a network with one of the worst diversity ratings—lecturing about racism wasn't quite the slam dunk Cain thought.
"This is the opposite of Martin Luther King's dream for America, or the American constitutional ideal that every man is created equal," Cain continued.
The minifigures, which are pieces of plastic and not actually real people, stand side by side on a color palette.
The implied message of people of all shapes, sizes, stripes, colors, genders and persuasions having an equal spot is not even subtle.
It's a good thing nothing else is happening in the world, otherwise Fox News viewers would be extremely uninformed.
