Super Bowl bans Gay commercial

CBS has rejected a commercial from the gay dating website ManCrunch.com. It has been confirmed that CBS will not air the commercial during SuperBowl XLIV on February 7th.

The commercial depicts two men kissing after their hands touch while reaching for a potato chip. “After reviewing the ad — which is entirely commercial in nature — our Standards and Practices department decided not to accept this particular spot,” a network rep said in a statement. “As always, we are open to working with the client on alternative submissions.”

A rep for ManCrunch.com also confirmed the rejection. “We are totally of the opinion the ad was rejected due to the homosexual content,” spokeswoman Elissa Buchter said. She added, “The creative is PG-rated and doesn’t feature any tongue or overt sexuality.”

“CBS officials have approved a script for a Super Bowl spot, starring Tim Tebow and his mother, from Christian group Focus on the Family,” trade publication Media Daily News reports. “It was originally believed by many that the ad would carry a pro-life message, but the non-profit group suggests it will not — at least not an explicit one.”

“It is against CBS’s policy to run advocacy ads, even those with “implicit” endorsements for one side of a public debate,” Media Daily News reports. CBS will review the spot before giving it final approval.

Focus on the Family said only that the ad would carry a “Celebrate Family, Celebrate Life” theme.

If this doesn’t infuriate you then you’re reading the wrong blog. Wake up gay people. I feel it’s time we take a stand. The ManCrunch commercial is not pornographic. I suppose America is okay with effeminate gay men on television so heterosexuals can laugh at us, but God forbid CBS broadcasts two regular, beer drinking men sharing a kiss. That would just  rock the heterosexual community to their core.

I ask you gay Americans, “Boycott CBS, not just on Super Bowl Sunday but for good.” Why support a broadcasting station that promotes a drug addict, wife beating man like Charlie Sheen but shuns a commercial that promotes gay men dating? Why?”
