The iconic Oreo cookie is getting a Gay Pride rainbow makeover, at least in a new Facebook ad campaign.

Oreo, which is owned by Kraft Foods, posted on its Facebook page a controversy-stirring ad featuring an Oreo cookie stuffed with a rainbow filling.

“We are excited to illustrate what is making history today in a fun and playful way,” Basil Maglaris, a spokeswoman for Kraft Foods wrote in an email to ABC News. “As a company, Kraft Foods has a proud history of celebrating diversity and inclusiveness. We feel the OREO ad is a fun reflection of our values."

In the last 17 hours, more than 157,000 people "liked" the picture.

Others, however, have been offended, sparking a proposed boycott.

Oreo says it does not plan to sell the depicted rainbow cookie in its ad. LMAO

Fuking insane. Of course, I thought Rs were already boycotting Oreos due to the mixing of black and white.

Time for the gays to just STFU already.

If you wanna be gay fine...be as gay as you want. But shut the fuck up about it. Because whether or not they like it, being gay isn't the norm. I don't care what people say, human males are supposed to mate w/ human females...that's what we're put on this earth to do, same goes for most mammals.

This whole "aww the gays/lesbians feel offended". Which in reality they're really not offended, they're just starving for attention.

Were the gays saying something? Looking at the ad and story, Oreo is saying something and the nuts who are offended are saying they will boycott. What did the gays do again?

Oreo and JC Penny and any company willing to publicly court the gay market is going to pay dividends for their companies in the future. Read the signs, businesses, and claim for yourselves valuable marketshare before its too late.

Alternatively, its sad that a company publicly expressing support for a given minority group is still newsworthy in this fucked-up country.

I wouldn't be surprised if Bryan Fischer has an entire radio program devoted to this for his several million listeners.

A good profile on Fischer (he's the guy who ran off the gay foreign policy adviser to Romney this year): http://www.newyorker.com/reporting/2012/06/18/120618fa_fact_mayer

He believes that non-Christians have no First Amendment rights, that HIV does not cause AIDS, and that Muslims should be banned from immigrating to America. Fischer then called the piece an embarrassing piece of tripe.

On the other hand, as far as our country goes relatively speaking, I think we rank pretty high up there in terms of gay rights.

Normally I would drop this kind of shit, but you have a long and storied history of following various posters around and going off on them like a menopausal fat lady.

On the other hand I don't see gays going out in droves and buying a cookie, especially over a favorite if they have one, because they ran an ad on facebook...while on the flip side I can see Nabisco taking some damage. Personally it's a non-issue...I don't buy the crappy things anyway.

Oreos are the best kind of cookie. Better than designer cookies or homemade. If I were going to buy a cookie, I'd buy Oreo even of they ran an ad celebrating al Qaeda appreciation day, Russian communism resurgence month, or cosmo's birthday.
