Cheerios Ad causes backlash because of Bi-racial couple

Chase is crying in a corner someplace.

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2013/0...n_3363507.html

Quote:
An adorable Cheerios commercial featuring an interracial couple and their daughter generated such a strong racist backlash on YouTube that the comments section had to be closed.

The ad had received more than 1,600 likes and more than 500 dislikes as of Thursday evening.

Prior to the closure, the comment section had been filled "with references to Nazis, 'troglodytes' and 'racial genocide,'" according to Adweek.
I didn't hear about this until yesterday - I thought it was cute, and didn't notice until I saw this.

That's where you date a girl who just lies there? I don't think anyone supports that.
