MALE Candy Crush Saga players are victims of a ‘sugar ceiling’, it has been claimed.
Player Wayne Hayes highlighted gender discrimination after posting his score to Facebook with a meme of Clark Gable looking smug and the words ‘No dinner tonight, kids: Dad’s playing Candy Crush’.
Haynes said: “The female Candy Crush aristocracy wants the game to be seen as a feminine guilty pleasure, like fireman calendars and diet chocolate drinks.
“There’s definitely a lack of humorous, gender-appropriate Facebook memes for male Candy Crush Saga addicts.
“People assume that because I’m a bloke, my children aren’t going without meals because of the game.
“But I do the cooking at home and I’m proud to say my children are not getting any dinner tonight, because I’m too busy making rows of electronic sweets disintegrate.”
Hayes became serious about the game after receiving over a hundred invites from colleagues and became world men’s Candy Crush Saga number one after clearing all the jelly at level 14 in an unprecedented 38 moves.
He said: “I’d just like to thank the 311 people who showed their support by liking my high score on Facebook.
“To all those schoolboys who get bullied for preferring Candy Crush Saga to Call of Duty, I did this for you.”
