‘One Million Moms’ Group Says Skittles Commercial Promotes Beastiality
STUDIO CITY (CBSLA.com) — One Millions Moms, a group of women fighting against media messages they find offensive to their children, is strongly opposing a new Skittles ad.
Members of the watchdog group are concerned about a commercial in which a teenage girl whose roommate walks in on her making out with a Walrus.
“Parents find this type of advertising inappropriate and unnecessary,” the website says. “Skittles Marketing Team may have thought this was humorous, but not only is it disgusting, it is taking lightly the act of bestiality.”
The group, whose motto is “Let your voice be heard”, recommends taking action.
“Let Skittles know their new ad is irresponsible,” it reads. “Please send an email letter to Skittles (owned by Wrigley Co. and now a part of Mars, Inc.) regarding their new “Walrus” commercial and ask that they pull this offensive commercial immediately.”
The group has also protested GAP for its “Be One” billboard, Macy’s for a “two groom” advertisement, and NBC’s new show “The New Normal” because they believe it continues to “subject families to the decay of morals and values.”
