Cheerios Commercial Strikes Outrage

Cheerios-articleLargeCheerios is getting a lot of unhappy comments pertaining to them putting an interracial family in one of their commercials.

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.

Take a look at the video below…
