On June 25th -- Gay Pride Day -- giant cookie maker Oreo rolled out it's new Pride Oreo cookie stuffed with creamy fillings representing the colors of the gay rainbow. Oreo was careful to note that the colorful creamy fillings don't actually exist, so don't expect boxes of gay pride Oreo cookies to hit store shelves any time soon.
The Oreo gay pride cookie is just a symbol of message of tolerance, unity and love from Oreo's marketing team. Kudos to them.
From ABC News:
America’s favorite cookie is stirring up more than milk today after Kraft Foods posted a gay pride Oreo on the cookie’s Facebook page.
Oreo posted the photoshopped picture of an Oreo cookie stuffed with rainbow-colored layers of frosting Monday evening with the caption “Proudly support love!”
Over the past 17 hours more than 157,000 people have “liked” the image, 40,000 people have shared it and 20,000 have commented on it.
But while many of the comments were supportive, some Facebook users pledged to boycott the cookie because of the post.
“I’ll never buy Oreo again,” one commenter wrote.
“Disgusted with oreos,” wrote another. “Being gay is an abmonitation in GOd’s eyes i wont be buying them anymore.”
