So yeah, just watched a new Snickers commercial on YouTube, I thought it was hilarious. Others in the YouTube Video Comment Community however, saw things differently. Some swore never to eat any Mars brand bar because this commercial, in their eyes, was homophobic.

Said commercial

I can partially (we're talking a very small portion here) see where they are coming from. Mr. T being, well, Mr. T, seemingly "attacking" a speedwalker who happens to love shaking his ass a bit. So basically, the whole pretense that this is homophobic lies with the assumption that the speedwalker is gay. That thought never crossed my mind when I watched the commercial, not once.

Got a poll coming, what do you think of this? Am I being insensitive?

It's not intended to attack gay people but rather offend speed walkers.

Not really homophobic, but tasteless still.

"You're a disgrace to the man race!" Doesn't matter if the speedwalker is gay or not, it's ****ing dumb.

Not homophobic, they don't even tell if the dude is gay or not so how can it be? I mean, the way you walk doesn't determine if you're gay or not

Isn't that how power-walkers walk anyway?
If you've ever watched it on television that's how they do it, it's not a "gay walk."
Hey Meg.
Proud of you.

It's not homophobic at all, just men who think walking is a legitimate sport...well ya know..
#21
Damn...that just renewed my faith in Mr. T. Why are some people so sensitive? Honestly. "I'm not going to eat a candy bar because in the commercial it's vaguely homophobic" , like Mars is going to lose any profit. It seems these people either are trying to stir up controversy over a harmless commercial or looking for attention. I dunno. Snickers pwns regardless.

You know, that was one of the thoughts I had for a bit, as one of the people commenting said something like "This should be flagged for bullying". I guess they're trying to start a shitstorm via a Snickers commercial.

Mr T is considerably more gay than that speedwalker, therefore no, it is not homophobic.

It is more of an internal war encompassed inside homosexuality, between macho gays and effeminate gays.

I don't think it was because the speedwalker was shaking his ass in a gay way. It hink it was because speedwalking is a womanly pastime and Mr T does not like men engaging in feminine pastimes and thus suggested that the man run instead, and informed him to get some nuts.
