Umm, this is NOT what we were expecting from TLC.
Check out the official statement (below)!

Just because Oreo cookies are black and white doesn't mean their stance on equality is!
The Kraft company declared its support for the LGBT community today by posting a photo of their famous cookie on Facebook and Twitter — only instead of the traditional frosting, this one houses a RAINBOW of delicious statements!
But as you can imagine, the 26.9 Oreo fans who liked their fan page just LOST IT… prompting an intense debate between the right and left wing via comment section!
This included such gems as:
"I'm never eating Oreos again. This is just disgusting"
"Unliking page and the rest of the 'kraft' family products… I will not support a company with these views"
Aww! Such a shame!
These people better start getting used to a limited menu, because it's only a matter of time before more and more begin to come around to the oh-so-crazy notion that EVERYONE deserves the same civil liberties as everyone else! And that hatred against another group of people based purely on sexual preference is IGNORANT and WRONG!
But let's let the spokesperson from Kraft sum it up perfectly, shall we?
In a statement, they explain:
"In recognition of Pride Month, Oreo created an ad depicting the rainbow flag with different colors of Oreo crème. We are excited to illustrate what is making history today in a fun and playful way. As a company, Kraft Foods has a proud history of celebrating diversity and inclusiveness. We feel the Oreo ad is a fun reflection of our values."
And it certainly accomplishes just that!
Such a shame that a ever-shrinking group of people still can't see that!
EQUAL RIGHTS FOR ALL!
