Snickers adverts pulled for being anti-gayMikey 5 comments
You know those hilarious over-the-top Snickers adverts featuring the recently resurrected Mr T? Apparently the latest has been pulled from television because certain people say it contains anti-gay sentiment.
Judge for yourself:
It made me laugh and I can't see anything anti-gay about it. Mr T isn't hassling the power walker of being gay (of which there is no evidence anyway), he's hassling him for partaking in an what could be considered an 'unmanly' activity, so there is a distinct difference. The phrase 'get some nuts' is used as a double entendre, meaning to get some Snickers (because they contain nuts) and to grow a pair of testicles (nuts).
This is the second Snickers advert to be pulled for anti-gay sentiment. The Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation and the Human Rights Campaign complained about the Snickers Super Bowl advert.
Check this one out:
That's even funnier than the previous. Is there anyone in gay audience that could offer perspective?
