Predictably, the American Family Association’s shrieking harpie group One Million Moms has discovered the recent Cadbury Creme Egg commercial featuring a real-life gay couple sharing one of its gooey treats.
Wrote the group: “If you look forward to having your annual Cadbury Creme Egg each Easter season, you might not like how the company celebrates the risen Savior. adbury just released a commercial that has resulted in a backlash of comments from Christians and non-Christians alike. Everything from ‘disgusting’ and ‘very disappointing’ to ‘yech’ and ‘gross.’ Todd Starnes best describes the ad this way: ‘It’s like Disney’s ‘Lady and the Tramp’ scene where the two dogs share spaghetti. Except, it’s two grown men spinning around in a circle and sharing a creme-filled chocolate egg in a sexualized way.’ If U.S. sales are strong, Cadbury just might bring this ad to American televisions for your children to see. Taking a stand now will send a strong signal that their eggs are cracked up.”
