More consumers will boycott Heinz if they had allowed the advert to run than vice versa.
No matter how the press or politicians try to potray gay relationship as a normal way of life, alot of people still don’t buy it. Same-sex relationship is here to stay so is the opposition to it.
Its nothing more than caving in to homophobia. These narrowminded bigots who object should be reminded that their own kind bombard us with their sexual orientation in the form of films, advertisements, magazines, bare-breasted women in the yellow tabloids such as the Daily Mirror, Sun, all manner of media depicting men and women “going at it”, ad nauseum. Do we object when we see them exchange a simple kiss? NO! Its a doublestandard for sure that has reached the pinnacle of hypocrisy, straight hypocrisy that is.
How interesting that the ad was pulled because 200 homophobes complained but yet they ignore the voices of many thousands who have complained about their decision to cave.
And where are all the conservatives that constantly whine about the PC left. Why aren’t they pitching a fit over the PC right that fly into a hissy fit every time anyone does anything that they disagree with?
What I find strange is that Doctor Who, which is essentially pitched at older children as well as adults, has has same sex kisses, but nothing of the level of outcry this ad has generated…. I can only conclude homophobes love tomato ketchup, but dislike watching Dr. Who. How curious.
Markus, NOT ONE Tory MP has signed the petition that 9 Labour MPs have already done to demand Heinz reinstate the advertisement. Why not, if they’re so supportive of equality as their party claims?
