Gay Couple Reflects On Negative Reaction To Their Cadbury's Creme Egg Commercial

Remember in early January when Cadbury's Creme Egg released a commercial featuring real-life gay couple Callum Sterling & Dale K. Moran? It was cute, right? Well, a number of bigots apparently thought the commercial was the biblical end of days! One petition even accused Cadbury of "grooming, exposing children to inappropriate and graphic sexual content".

Although the couple has received loads of positive support Moran shares, "Nobody in production, at Cadbury and especially ourselves thought there would be any blowback from the commercial."

You can always count on the whack jobs over at "One Million Moms" to file a petition (it has approximately 31,000 pledges). By the way, "One Million Moms" is an offshoot of the American Family Association which the Southern Poverty Law Center labels a hate group.

Sterling and Moran have done many commercials together, but never have they had a response quite like this one. "I think the blowback came from the fact that a lot of everyday people took what was sharing a Creme Egg, which was more of a gimmick 'how do you share a Creme Egg' and sexualized it, which is something mainstream media can't deal with."

The commercial has over one millions views on YouTube. Cadbury wisely has the comment section shut off. In case you missed it, check it out below.

WATCH: It's the Creme Egg Golden Goobilee!
