Mollie Hemingway: Activists React To Doritos Ad About Babies With Twitter Rants – The Federalist

This is what hating babies and the scientific technology that allows us to see them in utero looks like, I guess. Others similarly tried to show their dismay at the ad. Huffington Post’s headline was “Doritos’ Super Bowl Ad Is Making Us Rethink Ever Eating Doritos Again.” Adweek had the utterly bizarre headline: “How Doritos’ Super Bowl Ad Kicked Off a Twitter Conversation About Birth Control” followed by a deranged subhead: “‘Ultrasound’ got consumers talking about abortion.”What the hell? Aborting a baby who just exited the womb in order to have a Dorito chip is called infanticide, Adweek. Also, stop being scared of babies. The Daily Mail showed how much of a bubble it is in with the headline “Super Bowl 2016 viewers slam Peter Carstairs’ Doritos ad on Twitter.” The entire world doesn’t abhor depictions of life in the womb, Daily Mail.
UPDATE: Frito-Lay has shut down the Youtube version of its ad: The following embed was still working as of Monday afternoon, PDT, February 8, 2016:
