Campbell's Soup prides itself on being a family brand, and now they are expanding their branding to include all kinds of families - which is sadly why some (bigoted) people are so ticked off. Campbell's recently released a soup commercial starring a gay couple enjoying some soup with their child, and naturally the jerks of the internet freaked the eff out about it.
The soup commercial is actually a tie-in with the new Star Wars film, and a pretty damn adorable one at that. The commercial features the dads feeding their son some soup, while using their best Darth Vader impression to say "Luke, I am your father." It's pretty much the most innocent ad on the planet, but the YouTube commenters don't agree: hateful comments came flooding in to the site, claiming that Campbell's is encouraging an "unnatural" lifestyle and threatening to boycott their products. Group One Million Moms also got onboard the Campbell's Soup hate train, which is not surprising at all considering their track record. This organization has little to do with their time other than hate on parents who aren't doing anything but loving each other, their son, and soup. Of course, One Million Moms doesn't understand that - instead, they see the company "glorifying sin." Watch it for yourself and see where the heck they got that from:
America has made amazing strides for gay rights in the past few years (including FINALLY legalizing gay marriage, woot!) but it sucks to see that there are still people on the wrong side of history. As for Campbell's Soup, it's wonderful that they're allowing all kinds of families to have a place in their commercials, and while haters may hate, I'm glad that this company isn't backing down.
