McCain Fries Claps Back at Homophobes with Another LGBT-Inclusive Commercial
We definitely know what fries we are going to beeline for the next time we are in the supermarket.
McCain Fries, one of the world's largest distributors of frozen fries, has produced yet another LGBT-inclusive commercial after receiving a ton of outrage from homophobes due to an earlier one that they made in September 2017.
The first one featured two gay dads, and the brand was attacked by homophobes and bigots alike for featuring a same-sex couple in their ads.
The real-life couple, Lee and Mat Samuels-Camozzi and their 19-month-old son, Carter, were actually berated online and the brand eventually removed the 30-second spot.
“We are shocked this kind of attitude exists in the 21st century,” Lee said to the Daily Record. “We’re proud of our little family and we have nothing to be ashamed of.”
McCain isn't shying away from its inclusion, as its new "Here's to Love" campaign features a lesbian couple cooking, dancing, and kissing together. It also features people with disabilities and interracial couples.
“When it comes to love, what’s normal?” a narrator asks. “Normal isn’t normal. Love doesn’t care about gender, where you’re from, or what others may think.”
Nice work, McCain fries. Clip below:
