A lesbian couple will appear in this ad, even though the company got hate mail


Last September, conservatives were outraged that a gay couple appeared in an ad for McCain, a brand of frozen potato products.

“We are shocked this kind of attitude exists in the 21st century,” one of the men said. “We’re proud of our little family and we have nothing to be ashamed of.”

McCain hasn’t been deterred. They’re sticking with the campaign featuring diverse families, saying it “celebrates real homes and [is] depicting honest, modern day family life.”

And a new ad features a lesbian couple.

The ad opens with “When it comes to love, what’s normal? Normal isn’t normal.” It then shows different families. When a lesbian couple is shown, the voice over says, “Love doesn’t care about gender.”
