Default General Mills will ĎABSOLUTELY NOTí remove ad.

After an unexpected backlash over what seemed to be just another commercial, General Mills decided to temporarily disable commenting on a YouTube video of one of its new ads that features a White mother, a Black father and an interracial child, but on Friday associate marketing director for Cheerios and Multigrain Cheerios at General Mills in Golden Valley, Minnesota Meredith Tutterow stated that the ad will ďabsolutely notĒ be withdrawn.

I thought the ad was sweet.

wow, I've been googling the response. I like this one:

Jezebel:

By now you know some racist dicks have whipped themselves up in a frenzy of racist dickery over the portrayal of an interracial family in a Cheerios ad. You see, Cheerios has committed the heinous crime of "acknowledging that interracial families exist," and also that "sometimes interracial families need to eat breakfast." This was too much for the racist dicks--Cheerios was forced to disable comments on YouTube where the video was posted. (What's up with you racist dicks, anyway? Don't you have jobs?)

I am biracial. My mom is black and my dad is white. My family often had the audacity to eat breakfast even though cereal was not being specifically marketed to us....

People are making a big deal over NOTHING with this ad. I found it to be a great ad. When the dad woke up with cereal on his chest I giggled.

The next Cheerios ad should feature biracial, same-sex parents.

I buy into the Cheerio heart thing. Always have a box. But I use them internally.
