There is a term used to describe people who ask about things that they (and maybe all of us) are better off not knowing sometimes: they are called "askholes." But in the case of following a halal diet, these questions are inevitable ... life-crushing but understandable. 

In February, Twitter user @TheLifeOfBako decided to ask M&M's if their colorful chocolate circles of perfection are halal. To the dismay of Muslims, it turned out M&M's are actually not halal-friendly (at least not in all countries).

"M&M's are not suitable for a Halal diet. We use additives that come from animal products," the chocolate manufacturer wrote in a tweet.

A month later, the tweet is still causing chaos among Muslims around the world.

The question:

The answer:

"None of the M&M's (all varieties) are suitable for a halal diet"

M&M's have some halal-certified products: "This is indicated on the packaging"

Example of "halal-certified"

The tweet is still causing a meltdown - a month later - because M&M's!!!!

"WAIT ... WHAT?!"

"An international crisis"

"Why did you ask? You just ruined the good life for everyone else"

"Birdbox" references surfaced

"I'd like to pretend I didn't read that"

"Is this true?"

"This is why our parents told us to stop asking too many questions!!"

"How could you do this to us?"

"My whole life has been a lie"
