In case you missed Rosie talking about this yesterday on The View,GLAAD declared the commentary from NFL players about the Snickers’ Super Bowl ad (with the two mechanics kissing) as blatantly homophobic. Um, you can kind of see why. Snickers had posted the commercial (and three other alternate endings) along with clips of the NFL players’ reactions on its site Snickerssatisfies.com, but have since ripped the site down at the request of GLAAD. In case you want to see, the clips are still on YouTube and I’ve posted them below. Check it out:
