One Million Moms Attacks Skittles for Promoting the Sacred Love Between Woman and Adorable Walrus
I don't know what the hell is up the One Million Moms' bug, but after being roundly criticized and reduced to irrelevancy for their attacks on Ryan Murphy's gay-adoption sitcom "The New Normal" and that narrow-minded hate-shrew, Ellen Degeneres, they're now going after Skittles. Why? Because in a recent ad, Skittles is apparently promoting bestiality, or at least to people who clearly no not understand Skittles off-beat sense of ... weirdness.
As they write on their website:
We are not sure of Skittles' thought process behind their new ad, but if they are attempting to offend customers, they have succeeded. Skittles' newest "Walrus" commercial includes a teen girl making out with a walrus. The two are on a sofa in an apartment kissing on the mouth when her shocked roommate walks in on them. Parents find this type of advertising inappropriate and unnecessary. Does Skittles' have our children's best interest in mind? Skittles candies are for all ages, but their target market is children.
Skittles Marketing Team may have thought this was humorous, but not only is it disgusting, it is taking lightly the act of bestiality. Let Skittles know their new ad is irresponsible.
Jesus Christ, people. Put down the pearls. Maybe try them in some new places. Loosen the hell up. It's a bizarre commercial, but I seriously doubt that after seeing it, a lot of American teenagers are going to run out and knock up the first walrus they see.
If One Million Moms really want to get their granny-panties in a bunch, they should watch more Starbursts commercials.
