On the one hand, we shouldn't really give One Million Moms any more attention: they're trolls, not a legitimate political advocacy group, and if we ignore them, maybe they'll go away.
But their latest complaint is simply too hilarious to ignore — a Skittles commercial featuring a teen girl making out with a walrus promotes bestiality.
From their site:
We are not sure of Skittles' thought process behind their new ad, but if they are attempting to offend customers, they have succeeded. Skittles' newest "Walrus" commercial includes a teen girl making out with a walrus. The two are on a sofa in an apartment kissing on the mouth when her shocked roommate walks in on them. Parents find this type of advertising inappropriate and unnecessary. Does Skittles' have our children's best interest in mind? Skittles candies are for all ages, but their target market is children.
Skittles Marketing Team may have thought this was humorous, but not only is it disgusting, it is taking lightly the act of bestiality. Let Skittles know their new ad is irresponsible.
Hey, it's a slippery slope. One day your daughters are kissing walruses; the next day they're fucking seals. It's like they always say — if you let gays get married, soon people will be marrying marine mammals.
It's a testament to One Million Moms' decreasing relevancy that there hasn't been much response to this nonsense claim, which they published last week. But it's important to draw attention to the bestiality complaint, just in case One Million Moms ever attempts to be taken seriously in the future.
Real talk, though: that walrus is pretty cute.
