Ad banned for being "too gay"

Lube company Boy Butter created a new commercial starring ginger hunk Seth Fornea. 

The spot was designed to air during the broadcast of RuPaul’s Drag Race in major markets like New York, LA and San Diego.

But appears the ad won't make it to air in Chicago, since, according to Boy Butter, Comcast thinks the ad is literally "too gay". 

The makers of Boy Butter have spoken of their disappointment after their ad was pulled from cable TV in Chicago. Eyal Feldman, who founded the company, claimed ComCast TV: "I did not think [Chicago] viewers could handle the level of gayness in this ad starring sexy ginger, Seth Fornea, who is showing us all how to properly use a butter churn.

He said that he wanted to create a tongue-in-cheek ad similar to the sexy Super Bowl ads to push his products with a gay point of view. There were not restrictions on the 2015 Carl’s Jr. Super Bowl ad starring Charlotte McKinney, which he claimed was basically porn in comparison. "It’s ‘a sexist and homophobic double standard", he added.

Watch and judge for yourself.
