An image posted to the Oreo fan page shows rainbow layers betwixt its biscuity wafers, instead of the usual dollop of white cream. The photo was accompanied by the message "Proudly support love!". The post came after thousands of people attended -blam!- pride events in New York, San Francisco and elsewhere over the weekend. While most commenters were in support of the multi-coloured equal rights cookie, others disagreed with Oreo's tolerant stance, some even threatening a biscuit-boycott. "This is absolutely disgusting," opined Desean Washington. "Your attempt to 'normalize' the behaviour of homo-blam!-s has cost you a customer." Steven Osoria was another to express displeasure with the post, which provoked such a violent response that he had decided he was "never eating an oreo ever again". Facebook user Steve Permar, whose interests on the site include "Sarah Palin" and "I Love Jesus", posted: "Guess I won't be buying oreo's [sic] anymore", while Mike Wirth declared the Oreo post was evidence of "more homo-blam!-ity shoved down our throats".[/quote] [Edited on 06.26.2012 10:01 AM PDT]
