Is investigating this gay kiss in a TV ad ‘homophobic’?
Spanish regulators have been deemed “homophobic” for investigating an advert which shows two men kissing after a complaint.
The advert, available to view below, was 32 seconds long, and was titled ‘Dare to Change’, for Wuaki.tv, a provider of on-demand internet streaming video.
Created by ad agency Commo!, a scene in which two men kissed led to one complaint from a viewer to the Spanish National Commission for Markets and Competition.
Autocontrol, the self-regulation body of Spanish advertising is investigating the video, reports the Local.
The Catalan Gay Liberation Front, which deemed the investigation “homophobic”, asked: “Can anyone imagine a complaint about a kiss between a man and a woman?”
They said the advert should be seen “by everyone”, and shouldn’t be “in the gunsights” of regulators.
