ADORABLE Cheerios Commercial Is Controversial For Some!

Filed under: YouTubeFood

General Mills has been receiving flak for its new commercial for Cheerios.

In the commercial, an interracial family has an adorable exchange about how Cheerios is good for one's heart.

Unfortunately, the interracial aspect has inspired a lot of negative and racist comments!

Comments which prevent other companies from making commercials like this one for Cheerios.

Here's what a consultant said:

"The reality is that, in general, most big companies don't want to take a lot of risks. The ability for nameless, faceless people to get on the Internet is out there, and companies don't like it when people yell at them."

Personally, we think this is a wonderful commercial, and we hope other companies follow Cheerios' lead and start worrying about good quality rather than how they're being perceived.

Check out the commercial (above) and let us know what you think!!!

North Korea Airs Bend It Like Beckham On TV! First Western-Made Film To Do So!

north-korea-allows-western-made-bend-it-like-beckham-to-air-on-tv

So crazy!

North Koreans were allowed to watch a western-made film for the first time on TV this past week when the British Embassy made arrangements for the British soccer film Bend It Like Beckham, co-starring Keira Knightley, to be broadcast!

Normally, western films are considered a big no-no in the country, but given the public's love for the sport, an exception was made. However, much of the film's content - including interracial relationships, homosexuality, and religion - was cut out of their edit, leaving the film's new running length to be about an hour.

We find it so unfortunate that so many places enforce censorship to that degree, but we suppose this is a step in the direction of progress!

Hopefully it will continue to come!
