Soft drink victimisation at new levels
Well the 2014 Sochi Winter Olympics are nearly upon us, and what with one thing and another, it seems like medieval vibes are the order of the day as regards Russia and the homosexuals. With a charm offensive of denials, beatings and Putin’s elegant way with words about how the gays will be not treated completely like outcasts, as long as the promise not to touch his nation’s children.
Coca-Cola, meanwhile having batted away many an online petition asking them to withdraw their sponsorship of the games, have carried on with their hands over their ears pretending they can’t hear anyone.
It transpires that the refreshing beverage has banned the word ‘gay’ from their website’s customisable ‘share a Coke’ function.
When writing the word 'gay', it offers the error message "Oops. Let's pretend you didn't just type that. Please try another name". Not entirely sure how many people in the world actually have the name ‘Gay’, but it’s not exactly an unusual name. What will the poor lambs do?
Interestingly ‘Hetero’, ‘Straight’, ‘Fascism’ and ‘Human Rights’ are all acceptable. But not Gay. It’s like Stonewall never happened.
Being a cheeky sort, the homosexuals have retaliated the way the know best – shrieking all over social media with lol-some creations as ‘Bummer’, ‘Shirt Lifter’, ‘Rear Gunner’ and ‘Cock Hound’.
Soft drinks - Fuck with us at your peril. We've already boycotted Russian vodka, imagine what would happen if everyone boycotts YOU Coca Cola.
