New ad for its Teddy Grahams snack line features two gay dads

Honey Maid responds to anti-gay critics by turning their hateful comments into ‘Love’

 Honey Maid has taken the extraordinary step of turning the anti-gay backlash against a recent commercial featuring two dads into a statement of love.

The company has released a YouTube video showing such hateful tweets as ‘Disgusting!” and explains that it hired two artists to take the negative comments and turn them into something else.

The women printed the comments out onto pieces of paper that they rolled up into small tubes and arranged them together so that they spell the word ‘Love.’

The company points out that while there were many negative comments, ‘we got over 10 times as many’ positive ones ‘proving that only one thing matters when it comes to family: Love.’

The 30-sec commercial opens with a gay male couple bottle-feeding their child before viewers are shown a tattooed dad laughing with his daughter, and an interracial couple and their three kids holding hands.

The voiceover says: ‘No matter how things change, what makes us wholesome never will. Honey Maid – everyday wholesome snacks for every wholesome family. This is wholesome.’

The commerical predictably drew criticism from anti-gay groups including One Million Moms which called the ad ‘an attempt to normalize sin.’
