Doritos recently came out with a limited-edition version of its Cool Ranch product, which comes in all the colors of the rainbow, designed to support the LGBT community. So, even if you die of heart disease, you’ll die with a smile on your face, Doritos crumbs on your chest, and with the knowledge that you were showing your support for a good cause.
However, not everyone is thrilled about gay Doritos! You can find many, many posts on social media just like the ones below.
Boycott Doritos and all the stand for. Who needs rainbow Doritos? We Christians have rights. We are being persecuted.— Miriah (@miriahcex) September 18, 2015
Hey @FritoLay how insufferably stupid are you? Gay chips? I send my kids to school with your products. Am I going to have to cease now?— Ric the Magnificent (@NASCARNAC) September 18, 2015
It’s just like a homophobe to send their kids to school with Doritos, isn’t it? It’s not even real cheese, man! Respect your children!
All is not lost, however, because where there is bigotry on social media, there’s often someone to turn shit into Dorito-flavored gold dust. In this case, someone created a Doritos Facebook Help page in order to troll the assholes. Mike Melgaard, self-described Internet troll, is not actually affiliated with Doritos, but Frito Lay really ought to hire him to run their social media.
