Kraft Foods Honors LGBT Pride Month, Raises Ire with Rainbow Oreo

We're guessing Chuck Norris won't be eating any Oreos any time soon...

Kraft Foods took a bold step this week by posting a LGBT-themed rainbow Oreo on Facebook in honor of Pride Month, a decision that - as you might expect - has been met with a wide variety of opinions online.

"this is absolutely disgusting!!! Vote with your dollar, I will NEVER buy anything Kraft Foods again," wrote one Twitter user, while another defended the move with:

"Thank you Oreo for the support of those who only wish to love and be allowed to love whoever they choose! You have a forever customer with me!! I want this Oreo on a shirt!!"

Explained Basil T. Maglaris, associate director of corporate affairs for Kraft:

"Kraft Foods has a proud history of celebrating diversity and inclusiveness. We feel the OREO ad is a fun reflection of our values. There has been a lot of buzz about the image, and it shows how relevant OREO is to people even after 100 years."

The most troubling aspect of this photo, in our view, is that the creme colors pictured above do not actually exist. Which is too bad. They look yummy.

Where do you stand on the rainbow Oreo?
