Pardon Me, Grey Poupon Celebrates Gay Pride

By: Jase Peeples

Grey Poupon is generating controversy after posting a new photo on the mustard brand’s Facebook page in honor of LGBT Pride month.

The ad is reminiscent of the commercials that popularized the brand in the 1980s and has received about 20,000 likes as of this writing. The photo features two men holding hands and was posted earlier this week along with a caption reading, “June is National Pride month. Though the festivities technically only last a month, we recommend celebrating all year — because Pride and good taste never go out of season.”

Kraft, the company which owns Grey Poupon, also received cheers and jeers for supporting LGBT Pride last year by including a rainbow-colored Oreo cookie as a part of the brand’s “Daily Twist” ad campaign.
