It is so bad in fact, Cheerios had to disable the ability to post comments on the Youtube video for that commercial.
I can’t believe that in the year 2013 people still exist who can’t accept an interracial relationship.
I mean seriously, have we come nowhere as a society? Are there really still individuals out there who can’t get themselves out of the 1940’s mindset?
I must say however, I am very pleased with Cheerios for sticking to their guns and not pulling the commercial off the air.
They held their ground and said in a statement to Gawker, “At Cheerios, we know there are many kinds of families and we celebrate them all.”
WAY TO GO CHEERIOS! Very well put.
