Doritos Announces Rainbow Chips – Right-Wing Heads Explode and Ruin the Salsa #itgetsbetter
This didn’t take long. It’s also interesting that Kim Davis looks like she’s had a few bags of Doritos.
Boycott, boycott, boycott – surprised?
Frito-Lay, the parent company of Doritos, today launched a great offer: donate $10 or more online to Dan Savage’s It Gets Better Project, get a bag of Rainbow Doritos – a limited edition version of its Cool Ranch flavor chips baked in the colors of the rainbow, to represent the gay pride flag.It Gets Better is a non-profit charity created in 2010 in response to the large numbers of kids who were attempting or committing suicide – kids who were literally bullied to death. Its sole purpose is to help LGBTQ kids and teens understand that life after you’re a kid or a teen gets better, and suicide is never the right answer.That’s it.The Doritos campaign is simple: raise money for a worthwhile cause, a charity that is helping to raise awareness and helping to reduce youth and teen suicide.And some conservatives, of course, have a problem with that.There are no gimmicks, no huge in-store displays, no TV ads, no Rainbow Doritos sponsoring the Super Bowl (although there’s an idea!) and yet the anti-gay right is freaking out – calling for a boycott of “fag Doritos,” among other ugly attacks.Labeling Dan Savage an “infamous anti-Christian bully and bigot,” Breitbart’s John Nolte writes that the “rainbow color of the Dorito chips represent the LGBT rainbow flag, a symbol now widely seen as one of anti-Christian hate and bigotry.”Nolte is the one who started that idea, and no, the gay pride flag is not “widely seen as one of anti-Christian hate and bigotry.”
