Coca-Cola Super Bowl Ad: Hateful Twitter Reactions To Gay Couple

Mon, February 3, 2014 1:44pm EDT by 8 Comments

Two steps forward, one step back. At least that’s what we learned on Feb. 2, when Coke’s multi-language Super Bowl commercial — the first to feature a gay couple — drew the ire of many ignorant Twitter users, who posted hateful reactions to the gay dads in the ad.

Oh, Twitter people. We can always count on you to sour the mood when something like Coca-Cola’s beautiful commercial breaks boundaries by featuring the first gay couple in a Super Bowl ad.

Coca-Cola Super Bowl Ad: Hateful Twitter Reactions To Gay Couple

While most of the Internet’s finest bigots spent their night complaining about the use of multiple foreign languages in the Coke commercial (how dare they speak not-American!), others were busy complaining about the two gay dads who take their daughter roller skating towards the end of the ad. Because, you know, it’s not like it’s 2014 or anything.

Of course, many non-hateful people also praised the ad for featuring people of varying colors and sexual orientations, but alas, their voices were drowned out amongst the hatred and bigotry. Which is pretty depressing, since the ad was meant to be a celebration of people from all walks of life living freely and happily in the great United States of America — while drinking coke, of course.

Watch the ad here, then read the depressing tweets if you dare.

Being a bigot is when you are saying mean things about it. If you don’t agree with there lifestyle or your not on the “gay wagon” that’s fine but when you bash and be hateful you are a bigot.

Once again you start with the name calling because they don’t share your opinion or beliefs .These people are not bigots,depressing or hateful just because they’re not rolling with the gay agenda.I could care less what Coke puts in their commercials ,they are my favorite soft drink.I have 2 gay family members and you know what I love them don’t care for their lifestyle.People are entitled to their opinion without being asked to conform or being bullied and called names for not agreeing with you.More like your the hater,depressed,bigot for attacking people that don’t share your views.

I totally agree with “me”. I loved the commercial and didn’t see anything wrong with it.

Thank you! Damn, Hollywood life. Enough is enough. No one said everyone has to agree with the LBGT agenda. You have the right to agree, they have their right to disagree. “It’s 2014″, damn right it is HollywoodLife it’s also another year where people are aloud to agree and disagree. Welcome to America. You are just as guilty as them. Not everyone has to share your views. Time to hire real journalists who can understand the different views on things instead of the ignorant ones your keep hiring.
