That commercial is not funny...and I don't mean that in a PC way. It simply isn't all that funny.
Right but thats your opinion and others thought it was funny. I really have a problem with people being censored. I am very big into freedom of speech, rights etc. If a company wants to go with the ad why should we make them stop b/c some people feel offended?
It's a double edged sword. You say you support people's rights, so they have a right to show the commercial. How about the rights of those who don't want to see two guys kiss?
Is it ok to trample those people's rights?
Makes no difference what they do with the commercial to me. I saw it, thought it to be stupid, and moved on. Not surprised people made a stink about it though. Knew it would happen.
change the channel
Um...yeah, that's a reasonable thing to make people do
. What's next? Anyone who doesn't want to see racism cannot watch television either?
How about a rape scene that magically pops up on the television during a commercial break? Or how about foul language, porn, or child sex? Are those acceptable too? Just change the channel, right?
Commercials are not movies. Anyone who didn't want to see the gay cowboy movie could simply choose to not go see it. If someone doesn't want to watch a particular television program, they have the option to change the channel and not watch it. People do not have that option with commercials as people are not given the commercial schedule ahead of time.
So while it's interesting that you want people to have the rights to produce anything they want, I do find it interesting that you're so quick to trample the rights of those who don't wish to see things of that nature when they don't know they will be shown it.
Yes doctor, I am sick.
Sick of those who are spineless.
Sick of those who feel self-entitled.
Sick of those who are hypocrites.
Yes doctor, an army is forming.
Yes doctor, there will be a war.
