A new television ad from McDonald’s that debuted in Taiwan that features a same-sex couple has been met with hostility in that country. Here is the ad:

Via PinkNews:

The Alliance of Taiwan Religious Groups for the Protection of Family has announced a boycott of the company, citing the ad’s “polluted” moral values of love and acceptance.

The group fumed: “Because McDonald’s is frequented by many children, it is especially important to oppose the promotion of same-sex behaviour.”

“It opposes all advertising that miseducates children on sexual behavior” and “rebukes and boycotts all enterprises that are polluting the next generation.”

According to Adweek, a spokesperson fumed: “Even if you want to just take a leak at a McDonald’s bathroom, you can’t help but feel polluted.”
