Gay Oreo Cookie

Oh wow, Christian Rights Groups are currently boycotting Kraft Foods because of a Rainbow Oreo Cookie they created to celebrate Gay Pride.

Sadly, this cookie won't be manufactured because it was only created for promotional purposes.

Basil Maglaris, a spokeswoman for Oreo’s parent company Kraft Foods, said in a statement that the image was part of a “series of daily ads reflecting current events in a fun way using images of OREO cookies and milk.” Kraft is not planning to sell the rainbow-stuffed Oreo in stores, Maglaris said, as it was created solely for the advertising campaign in honor of Pride month.

“We are excited to illustrate what is making history today in a fun and playful way,” she said 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.”

Meanwhile, sales are up 300% from Christians Rights Groups buying Rainbow popsicles, does anyone else see the irony?
