so this commercial is being taken down and off of tv after Cheerios got complaints from people about how this commercial is promoting bi-racial families. as a child coming from a bi-racial family i’m actually astonished and disgusted. it’s 20 fucking 13 people, get a grip.
What then can we all just spread this around online cause it’s pretty damn cute
So we can have 3,000 Victoria Secret commercials with obnoxiously sexualized women prancing around in their underwear but an adorable, wholesome commercial featuring a bi-racial family has to be taken down? Jesus sometimes I really hate living in this fucking country.
I nearly started crying from happiness when I saw this commercial. Because I am from a bi-racial family and you NEVER see that represented EVER. And when it is, it is hardly happy or healthy like this family here. But for people to COMPLAIN as if promoting bi-racial families is some sort of sin or grossly offensive way of life… that absolutely crushes me. It tells me that it doesn’t matter how far we advance or how many rights we get (And this can bleed over into LGBQT rights and on now). There is still a large majority of people who will never accept change. Who will forever be judging and see our mere existence as a crime against humanity.
No matter what I do, who I fall in love with or who I date, I will ALWAYS be in an interracial relationship. I am of two races. And to feel like there is nothing I can do to stop the scorn and looks from people of all colors, well… I’ve been dealing with that and coming to terms with it. Thinking maybe soon it will slow or stop. But this commercial being taken down as if it were promoting slaughtering animals… it takes away what little hope I had.
Wait, hold on. Can somebody post an actual link to proof that they’re not using this commercial anymore? Because I’m looking it up online and the most recent news I’m finding is that they disabled the comments on YouTube (which is completely reasonable, as YouTubers are notoriously horrible with comments).
This video posted on FOX, THIS MORNING, has the newscaster saying “Cheerios says they stand by their commercial, they have no plans to drop it or stop running it.”
IS NOBODY ELSE LOOKING THIS UP before getting their panties in a twist?? C’mon, Tumblr.
P.S. Great commercial. <3
