Homophobes: "Campbell's Not Mmm Mmm Good"

Campbell's Soup has purchased advertising in LGBT publication The Advocate promoting it's Swanson broths. The ads show two female NYC restaurateurs (a lesbian couple) and their son.

Needless to say, the right-wing idiots are OUTRAGED that Campbell's would commit the egregious act of depicting a loving couple with their child. BLASPHEMY! The AFA (American Fucktard Family Association) has urged it's members to contact Campbell's and express their outrage. AFA ChairIdiot Donald Wildmon states "Campbell Soup Company has openly begun helping homosexual activists push their agenda."

OUR PLOT HAS BEEN EXPOSED - we had planned on recruiting your children through the insidious use of Chicken Broth.

But according to Advertising Age, Campbell's hasn't backed down:

Campbell made no apologies for the series of ads, which it said is its first in any LGBT publication, and instead took a decisive stance on the criticism. "Our position on this is pretty straightforward," said company rep Anthony Sanzio. "Inclusion and diversity play an important role in our business, and that fact is reflected in our marketing plan. For more than a century, people from all walks for life have enjoyed Campbell's products, and we will continue to try to communicate in ways that are meaningful and relevant to them."

He added: "Our plans for the Swanson brand include additional placements in The Advocate."

I plan on loading up on Weight-Watcher's friendly Campbell's Soup and Swanson Broth products immediately. The AFA has urged it's trolls and ogres to contact Campbell Soup Co. to voice their outrage - so we need to contact Campbell's to show our support. You can write to:

Yay to you for writing this up. I happen to get most of the comfort for the low points in my life from Campbell's tomato soup and grilled cheese sandwiches. Lord knows it doesn't come from some straight people.I am one of those what? "incestuous" people and should expect no comfort. Campbell's does a great job for me.
BTW, the Swanson's broths have improved my cooking 100% lately. I love them....sodium and all.

Who knew?! What other tricksy things are out there? What other dangers are lurking in the kitchen cabinets? The linen closet? Under the bathroom sink?

I sent a letter to Mr. Conant. Thanks for making us aware of companies that reach out to the LGBT community.

Man, those fucktards at the AFA just won't be happy until everyone is humming Koombuya on their way to and from church! They make me sick.

Beau said...

it's like those retards who accused rachel ray of being a terrorist because she had a paisley scarf on, remember those pathetic right wing sad assholes?

The AFA isn't happy until people are unhappy. It's so sad and strange. I applaud Campbell's in their recognition of Chef Lea. :)
