Allison Kilkenny: Unreported

O’Reilly Upset By Gay Mayo

Posted in media by allisonkilkenny on June 22, 2008

Heinz has a new commercial in the UK for their “Deli-style mayonnaise.” Essentially, a really butch NYC deli guy stands in for a typical UK family’s mother figure. The commercial ends with the deli guy laying a very platonic kiss on the husband’s mouth.

Naturally, this is nothing to lose one’s fucking head over. Unless, of course, you’re Bill O’Reilly. Then, it’s the end of the world as you know it. This guy is so homophobic, old, out-of-touch, and sad, it would be hilarious if it wasn’t for the fact that he acts as a greasy, overpaid mouthpiece for a corporate agenda, which includes vast homophobia and narrow-mindedness.

My favorite part is when O’Reilly scoffs at the term “gender-blending” as though the Kinsey scale doesn’t exist and we live in a world with 100% straight people and 100% gay people. Get over it, Bill. You don’t have to freak out and exert your masculinity in the presence of every gay-ish act just because you had that homoerotic experience ONE time at camp.

The commercial:

O’Reilly’s freak-out:

    “I don’t wanna see guys kissing, i just want mayonnaise!”

    That part made me laugh. That old windbag is so out of touch.

    O’Lielly’s job is to make mountains out of anthills.
