Yesterday a Queerty reader sent us a link to the Oreo Facebook page, where we were delighted to see Nabisco had made this sextuple-stuff gay Pride image with the tagline, “Proudly support love.”
Thanks, guys. Pride was June 24, but we’re not complaining! As of Monday evening, the post was “liked” 122,684times, was shared 25,627 times and received 14,260 messages, sadly not all of them positive.”“Unliking page and the rest of the ‘kraft’ family products,” wrote one Debbie Downer, “i will not support a company with these views.”
There was one comment that made us smile, though:
“I know for a fact that the elves who live in that famous tree factory in the forest are all gay, and they’ve been working under contract with Nabisco since before Oreos ever came out of the proverbial closet. Every Oreo cookie ever eaten was made with love by a gay little elf, and I for one thank them for all their hard work!
Now a campaign is afoot to get Kraft (Nabisco’s parent company) to produce these rainbow treats for real (below).
As for those bigots who are going to boycott the company for its nod to gay love? They could probably stand to lay off the Oreos for a while anyway.
