New Tony the Tiger Ad Promotes Gay Pride
Some Christians are upset after Kellogg’s released an ad of Tony the Tiger promoting “gay pride.”
“Wear your stripes with pride,” an advertisement featuring the tiger, was published in the Atlanta, Georgia pride guide last month to go with the city’s homosexual pride march and festival. Kellogg is one of the event sponsors.
“At Kellogg, we’re an evolving culture that respects and accepts employees’ sexual orientation, gender identity and gender expression so that all employees can be authentic and fully engaged,” the advertisement reads.
The Tupelo, Mississippi-based Christian activist organization American Family Association posted the advertisement on its Facebook page on Friday.
“Goodbye Kellogg’s, you’re not so greaaattt!!! anymore,” one commenter named wrote.
“Tony the Tiger needs to be worrying about kid’s nutrition, not adult sex lives,” said another named Aimee. “This is perverse.”
