Thank Kraft For Their Rainbow Oreo! (boycott has started)

http://www.thepetitionsite.com/takeaction/387/782/383/


Target: Kraft Foods
Sponsored by: Kathleen J.



Kraft Foods, one of the country's largest snack food companies, recently took a stand on behalf of LGBT Americans. By posting a photo of a "rainbow Oreo" on its Facebook page to celebrate LGBT Pride Month, Kraft established itself as a company willing to act as a visible ally to the LGBT movement.

The image, which was captioned "Proudly support love," received over 150,000 likes in a few days. Kraft representatives maintained that the image was a "fun reflection of Kraft's values," but not every Facebook commenter was pleased. Many vowed to boycott Kraft products because of what they deemed "anti-family sentiment."

It might seem odd to get this worked up over a cookie. But at a time when many gay couples cannot legally marry or adopt children, visible solidarity from such a large corporation is nothing to take lightly.

Show the boycotters that Kraft has supporters, too! Tell Kraft: thanks for celebrating Pride Month in such a colorful way!

2. That's a boycott doomed to fail.

Only a bunch of old Fox watchers will boycott -- but the probably didn't eat many Oreos anyway. I think the main market for Oreos would be young people, who, most of 'em, support gay rights.

Boycotting Oreo Cookies is freaking hilarious.

4. God, the more I see that image

The more I just want to eat the damn thing, and I'm not a fan of Oreos.

Also, yay Kraft.

8. They need to come out with that as a real product

If you thought Double Stuf Oreos sold well, and they did, wait till they have Septuple Stuffed Rainbow Oreos!
