Prideful Oreo Pic Offends Exactly the Kinds of People You’d Think It Would

Oh man: The Kraft Food Facebook page got a dose of pride yesterday when the official image was temporarily changed to a rainbow Oreo. (It appears to be gone now.) We absolutely applaud Kraft and Nabisco for taking a stand, but it’s almost as if the company was trolling its more, uh, conservative customers.

“Now I hate Oreos,” wrote one open-minded consumer on Kraft’s page. “Oreo, your market base is ‘FAMILIES’. how do you get a child? think about it. You are alienating your market base. Wow, geniuses,” wrote another. Anyway, they go on and on and tend to reinforce every stereotype you have about the kinds of people who would take a stand on Facebook against rainbow cookies, but one comment gets to the more crucial question surrounding the image: “gay pride and homophobic beliefs aside, please make those rainbow oreos, they look delicious.”
