Honey Maid Fights Homophobia With a Heartwarming Ad

Apr 3 2014 - 9:23pm

Just over a month ago, Honey Maid released a new TV commercial that explored what it means to be wholesome. In just 30 seconds, the ad features an incredibly diverse range of families — families with same-sex parents, biracial parents, and even a set of parents with tattoos and drum sets. The message seems pretty clear: these families are wholesome, and they enjoy wholesome honey-flavored snacks.

According to Honey Maid, it received a bunch of negative responses to the ad. People were saying it had offended millions of American families and that the ad was disgusting. And, well, when someone shows you hate, you can either hate them right back, or you can do the exact opposite. Watch the video above to see Honey Maid's response. Curious about the original ad?
