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

by at . Comments

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.

Rainbow Oreo

"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?

The gay bandwagon crap is starting to get old. Where does it stop? Before you know it the Girl Scouts will introduce the Lesbo Lemon cookie or screw that the Boy Scouts will start selling the cookies. The best marketing idea for the gay movement, probably was not intended to be one. But, Skittles has the best, "Taste The Rainbow" Why don't we just taste the rainbow? Anderson Cooper obviously ate a lot of them damn things. Didn't he?

I think that the Rainbow Oreo is very creative. To me, the blue color inside the Rainbow Oreo is the prettiest. Peace.

I want one! They're pretty. Who gives a shit what it represents? Besides, since when does the rainbow always stand for homosexuality? I wish people would concern themselves and get involved in matters of true importance instead of this bullshit.

Legitimate question here for those that cite the Bible in that homosexuality is wrong. How does someone else who sins affect whether or not you as a "saved" person goes to heaven or hell? Should you be concerned that someone that sins is going to hell if it doesn't directly affect you or where you will end up in the afterlife? I'm not trying to be an asshole here, I'm just genuinely curious where the logic comes from and how it works. I don't generally see commentary on reports of murder about how the killer is a sinner and going to hell.

Rainbow OREO, that is something new. I am gonna give it a try.

Well, I guess it's safe to say I won't be buying Kraft anymore either. At least they put their support out in the open so now we know.
