Honey Maid Tells Homophobes to Take a Hike in Best Response Ad Ever

The Honey Maid spot, which first ran on March 10, has generated its share of negative responses, most notably a letter-writing campaign from the not-at-all-overreacting One Million Moms.
"Nabisco should be ashamed of themselves for their latest Honey Maid and Teddy Graham cracker commercial where they attempt to normalize sin," wrote the group. "This commercial not only promotes homosexuality, but then calls the scene in the advertisement wholesome."
Of course that statement is one the dumbest collections of words every put together in a sentence. But Honey Maid didn't bother to offer a meaningless, pandering apology or back off the issue quietly. Instead, they hired two artists to take the bigotry and turn it on its head. They made physical print outs of their comments and created the following video:





Honey Maid released a glorious response to homophobic idiots who didn't like the snack company's ads depicting gay couples with their children.

I love this so much, and so will you. This is the absolute best way to respond to trolls who have nothing better to do but write dumb comments to companies that make honey graham crackers.

3. This is the way terrorists should be dealt with

 

My frustration with the current DC Dems has a lot to do with the fact that when teabaggers attack, the Dems engage in mumbling and pedantry and harrumphing when they should be firing back with every available bit of ammo.

Honey Maid has decided a few psychopaths are going to be beaten back.

5. Love it!

There are more of us who don't fit the "narrative", who may be in heterosexual relationships but smile at same sex couples - and send them the best - than there are hateful people.
