A woman has accused Campbell’s Soup of promoting “butt sex.” The company features an ad in which two fathers feed their son soup while quoting Star Wars. The woman believes they are corrupting the youth of America with a “gay agenda." Ana Kasparian (The Point), John Iadarola (Think Tank) hosts of The Young Turks discuss.
Do you like the ad? Can trolling be a good thing sometimes? Let us know in the comments section.

“A woman up in arms over Campbell’s Soup’s new commercial for their Star Wars-inspired soups featuring a child with gay parents ended up getting massively out-trolled, according to LGBT blog Queerty.
In the ad, one of the dads uses the Darth Vader catch phrase “I am your father,” to convince a finicky little boy to eat. His partner then says, “No, I am your father!” But Facebook user Jess Hicks read far more into the otherwise mundane ad showing parents feeding their child soup.
“I’m so sick of this Homosexual agenda, You sell soup, not butt sex! Please take your ad down or you will not have a company anymore!”
But another Facebook user created a page called Campbell’s ForHelp, which is not associated with the company but which nonetheless may have been saying what many of its employees were thinking.”

Being somewhat right wing I never thought I'd ever see eye to eye with TYT........
But here I am actually agreeing with them. There's far too many people on both sides that are just too stupid to understand what real issues are.
Just 10-15 years ago, that reaction would have been nearly universal. The only difference is that modern people are terrified of actually coming right out and voicing their disgust. But nothing has changed. Homosexuality is disgusting, aberrant behavior.
Aaannnd this is why I’m an atheist. I just simply believe “the Bible” was created to oppress ppl. Look at the Enlightenment Era, the same bible that told us the solar system revolved around the Earth not the sun, going against basic science and spreading lies simply to keep ppl below them. Or how about just a few years ago, the same bible that told us the interracial marriage is not okay, even though we all know there’s nothing wrong with it. Moral of my argument , I call bull on this “bible” that ppl worship. I just can’t see that there’s a book of rules telling people how to live life but changes its rules all the time. It simply isn’t valid.
We're not broken. Love needs no cure. I wouldn't walk up to a heterosexual couple and go, 'You're broken because there are people who are different from you! Walking down the street like that, you might as well be advocating for vaginal sex!'
Did you graduate from grammar school? High school? College? Graduate School? I graduated from all including two prestigious graduate schools. I would put you as a ninth grade drop out in the deep and very stupid South.
Ew people who like pineapple in their pizza are so weird why would someone take a fruit put in a pizza and shove it down their mouth holes I MEAN HOW DARE THEY LIKE SOMETHING I DONT IM I RIGHT
btw that's how dumb you sound
Excuse me? Getting worked up that we don't see the same way you do, when you're clearly undermining other people? Get off your high horse because it seems like you don't know how to ride it. Assuming that we're wrong although we're making valid points while you ignore us and seclude yourself from having a civil conversation
You're making it impossible not to judge you by doing the clapping thing. Also, judging is a normal thing. Why do you like one food more than another? Because you judge the taste. You can't live without judging.
Your Boy Skiiny first, the op didn’t say anything; didn’t even present any proof for you to disprove or “unproven” (this is how I know you’re actually stupid btw) So nobody knows what you’re yapping like a dog about.
Damn homophobes and nutcases.We now accept autistic people today in society(although there are some ableists now), but just lay off about homosexuals and just accept others of who they are, you bunch of dumbass tyrants.Just shut up crybabies and mind your own business..
For the love of Zeus.
We have advanced so far and this is the kinda shit people are worried about? Like a 30 second long soup ad featuring a gay couple? This is sad. Society is going downhill. Not that it was really ever very far up on the hill to begin with.
Like others here, I find it sad and worrisome that folks look at a relatively harmless video online (it's not like this is being beamed at folks 24/7) and manage to reduce it to a crude stereotype.
My guess is that this person thought that the term "butt sex" was the LEAST offensive term that she/he could use in this instance.
To end the discussion, I am sorry this story got any attention, and that we need to respond to it....though I have to say that I am heartened by the responses I read (didn't read all of them, just a large share).
+poppy poppy well of course I don't even know their names. And sure, they probably are straight actors playing gay dads in the ad, I don't know.. But I'm sorry, it's just that I feel weirded out about it.
Call me homophobic all you want, that's just how I feel, and we're free to express opinions especially here on Youtube, just as long as there's no slurs or hate speech involved.
I love the fact that these religious fundamentalists think they can take down giant companies like Campbells, on the grounds that an immaterial entity no-one can prove exists, supposedly objects to their advertisement. its the epitome of human arrogance.
Seven Star Vapor I am really sick and tired of people like you who think religion is all about hate. I am a Christian and I totally love and support LGBTQ+ people. just because some religious people are close minded and hateful doesn't mean that all of us are like this. Christianity is about love not hate.
that's not my style it’s not as simple as you think it is. Here is the issue
Gay men suffer stigma, discrimination. They find comfort in their sexual partners only. Gay community is small, especially the sexually active ones. They see the same faces here and there. One person ended up being a carrier, passes it around.
How to fix it? End stigma and discrimination, promote long term relationships ,sex education, condoms, problem solved.
Caranth Solfer it's better to grow up with two loving dads than one alcoholic mother. People always try to say "oh the kid needs a father/mother" but imagine all the kids who have that, but really bad parents. It will just continue forever.
"The kid needs a mother"
"The kid needs a mentally stable mother"
"The kid needs a mentally stable, and healthy, and perfect mother and father that are rich and can provide the child with everything they need"
"The child needs to live in a big house and have many toys"
"The child needs to be free from everything bad in the world"
Do you understand what I'm trying to say?
People who drinks alcohol shouldn't raise children, people who uses cigarette shouldn't raise children, people who has depression shouldn't raise children, people who has some kind of mental illness that can affect the child in some way shouldn't raise children. What did the gay people do? Leave them alone they are just leaving their lives
Rin Okumura as a person who has a depressed father, depressed people should not get kids. They should fix their own health first. I'm also depressed and much of that comes from my stupid ass father (well, I do love him because he's my dad but he never takes responsibility and play the victim card. I don't want to be responsible for my dad, I because have my own life to worry about)
Stupids things, childrens are happy with two parents that love them, not matter their gender. It affect way more people that see it.
There is ton of childrens outside with same sex parents that are way more happier than other that have one mother and father because... their is so much more in the equation of a happy and healthy child that only the 2 sexes of his parents... if you can't understand that, i'm sad for you.
