(Newser) – Oreo posted a picture of its iconic cookie with rainbow-colored filling to its Facebook feed last night, in honor of Gay Pride Day. A horrified Matt Stopera rounds up some of the ensuing controversy that erupted in the comments, writing on BuzzFeed, "This is the world we live in." Samples:

  • "No gay pride I boycott now"
  • "Being gay is totally wrong And should be a crime"

  • "gays need to leave america"
  • "Ok ; god told us to love and multiply fruitfuly . God hates gays ! If ur gay u can't 'multiply.'"
  • "i'll stick to black n white. f*** gay oreos."
  • "don't support gays or the companies that do, and hell yea i'm a hater!"
