Miller beer ain’t feeling the leather daddies. The massive American brewery asked San Fransisco’s Folsom Street Fair to remove their sponsorship logo from the group’s controversial poster.
The move comes after Matt Barber and his Concerned Women for America balked over the San Francisco fair’s depiction of the last supper (above).
Joe of Joe.My.God fame passed along this statement from Miller:
While Miller has supported the Folsom Street Fair for several years, we take exception to the poster the organizing committee developed this year. We understand some individuals may find the imagery offensive and we have asked the organizers to remove our logo from the poster effective immediately.
Folsom organizers insist they never intended to piss off the Christians. Organizer Andy Copper says:
There was no intention to be particularly pro-religion or anti-religion with this poster; the image is intended only to be reminiscent of the ‘Last Supper’ painting. We hope that people will enjoy the artistry for what it is – nothing more or less. Many people choose to speculate on deeper meanings.
We call bullshit. We know how the gays think and we’re sure someone must have at least thought, “Damn, this is going to piss people off!” Still, we think the poster’s great. Fuck Miller, who drinks that piss anyway?
