Colgate came out with the above advertisement on Facebook supporting LGBT Pride Month and the reactions are pretty intense. Now certainly, that amount of toothpaste is greater than the recommended allotment but I’m not sure we are all going to have to repent over it.
Some highlights include God having mercy on our souls and the stock crashing. Now I’m quite fine with gay people brushing their teeth. I’m fine with basically everybody brushing their teeth. Oral health seems like a rather good idea and should be encouraged.
For some reason, this is a passionate issue for people. But honestly, I can understand the anger over supporting hate groups. Like Nazi toothpaste would be concerning to me. But in this case, it’s not telling people to be gay or saying that its toothpaste is gay. It’s simply saying that they support gay people and would like to encourage them to use their product.
As of the time of this writing, no natural disasters have occurred and the stock has gone up and not down.
But the fact that this story is so famous years later, tells you that it’s a big thing and still an ongoing thing! Who knew so many people would still hear the story of this Colgate ad for Pride Month, even years later.
