.... for homophobia. Yep.

Not for causing a scene at the airport - "I ain't gettin' on no plane, foo". Not making waves at the hospital - "If you stick that needle in me I'll.... ZZzzzz".

HOMOPHOBIA!

The following ad was pulled from our screens because it has upset gay couples.....

:khi2d:


I just thought it was funny-ish, but not homophobic.

Your thoughts?
 

Sex?

I'm a dumb ass.

That shit is funny...

OT: the speedwalker in that commercial is a guy from Utah... His name is kirby Heybourne... he's a "star" here because he stars in a bunch of silly mormon comedies.

I think its very presumptuous of people to think that just because a guy isn't a 'manly man' that he must be gay.

I completely agree.

What I find ironic is that it is the gay community that have collectively found the ad offensive. In turn, promoting the stereotype.
