Mayo man-kiss ad pulled
The above advert for Heinz Deli Mayo has been withdrawn four weeks before the end of its run because of “consumer complaints”.
Apparently the image of two men kissing was regarded as “inappropriate”, “offensive”, and “unsuitable to be seen by children” by more than 200 viewers, putting it on course to be the most complained about advert this year.
UPDATE: (26 June) The ad created quite a splash in the USA, too. The American Family Association and Fox’s Bill O’Reilly expressed their outrage.
Randy Sharp of the AFA:
What does mayonnaise have to do with homosexuals and their lifestyle?
