A conservative advocacy group created by the American Family Association has set up a petition to boycott Oreo and its parent company, Mondelez International, due to its newest LGBTQ+ agenda campaign.
The campaign features a new rainbow cookie as well as a commercial in which parents take pride in their daughter’s homosexual lifestyle after she brings her girlfriend home to them.
The advertisement, created in collaboration with PFLAG, encourages other families with gay members to show their pride by using the hashtag #ProudParent.
The group called One Million Moms has hence expressed their opposition to Oreo’s campaign, saying that it is “pushing the LGBTQ agenda on families.”
“Oreo and parent company, Mondelez International, have begun airing a gay pride commercial which has absolutely nothing to do with selling cookies,” their statement read. “Mondelez International is attempting to normalize the LGBTQ lifestyle by using their commercials, such as the most recent Oreo ad featuring a lesbian couple, to brainwash children and adults alike by desensitizing audiences.”
Mondelez, previously known as Nabisco, has a wide range of popular foods such as Sour Patch kids, Triscuit, Chips Ahoy!, Ritz, and Wheat Thins. One Million Moms is organizing to boycott each of these brands if the parent company keeps on supporting the gay agenda.
It isn’t the first time One Million Moms have boycotted LGBTQ+ initiatives.
The gender-inclusive Mattel dolls and Hallmark’s latest gay-supportive films have also come under their spotlight.
