“Shame on Kellogg’s!” one of the hate group’s supporters said. “They will pay for this!”
“Criminal is what it is!” another person added.
The cereal giant is under attack for using their family friendly mascot Tony the Tiger in a pro-gay advertisement.
“Why?!” someone else said. “Why use a cartoon tiger?”
“Camel got heat for ‘marketing cigarettes to children’ because of their cartoon camel,” yet another person commented. “Is it just me, or is Tony now marketing a sexual lifestyle to children?”
Earlier this year, the company sponsored Atlanta Pride, and released an ad featuring Tony the Tiger standing proudly beside a message celebrating acceptance and respect of the gay community.
“At Kellogg, we’re an evolving culture that respects and accepts employees’ sexual orientation, gender identity and gender expression so that all employees can be authentic and fully engaged,” the ad read.
“Tony the Tiger needs to be worrying about kid nutrition, not adult sex lives,” someone said. “This is pervy.”
“What they’ve done to tony is thoroughly disgusting,” someone else added. “They won’t stop until every comic character in the world is a homosexual. Criminal is what it is. So sad.”
“Sad, sad,” another person agreed.
Of course, this is not the first time a company has been targeted by AFA for supporting equality. In 2011, the hate group boycotted The Home Depot for their “corporate endorsement” of gay pride, gathering more than 470,000 signatures on a petition demanding it quit supporting the gays. The company responded by thanking AFA for the free publicity then basically telling them to buzz off.
We’ve just gotta say, we think what Kellogg’s did is grrreat!
