Honey Maid Ads Sparking Controversy

Honey Maid Ads Sparking Controversy


(ABC) - Honey Maid Graham Crackers posted a controversial commercial featuring biracial and same-sex couples.

The commercial highlights wholesome families with diversity.

It was posted back in March with more than four million people having watched the video with different responses.

Other ads have sparked similar controversy including a Cheerio's commercial with a mixed-race family. A Superbowl Coca-Cola commercial showing people from multiple backgrounds singing "America the Beautiful" created backlash as well.

Despite the criticism, the companies have been standing by their ads.
