Cheerios Cake Embrace Love | I’m Lovin’ It
We are finally all moved in to our new house! I can’t wait to share it with you! My head is spinning with all the new projects that lie ahead of me!!
If you follow me on Instagram, you may have seen that just three days after we moved, I headed to Austin, TX for the BlogHer Food Conference thanks to my sponsor, Whirlpool. So things have been a bit crazy, to say the least. But, I’m finally starting to find a routine again. Our new house is starting to feel like home!
So, this week’s I’m Lovin’ It post is simple……… it’s about LOVE.
Have you heard about the Cheerios controversy?
General Mills is in the center of social media firestorm over a Cheerios ad it posted to its YouTube channel. The ad, which features a mixed-race family, ignited a racist backlash, forcing the brand to disable comments on the video due to the nature of the responses.
I hadn’t either, until I read about Amanda’s Cheerios Cake. And in true Amanda fashion, she believes that no matter what your beliefs or political views are, everyone can be united over cake!
I love that girl!
Like Amanda, I agree that we need to be sure to teach our children LOVE, not hate.
In case you are wondering……….General Mills has responded with class and grace:
“We are a family brand and not all of the comments were family-friendly,” Camille Gibson, vice president of marketing for Cheerios told USA Today. “There are many kinds of families, and Cheerios celebrates them all.”
I’m Lovin’…….Cheerios, a brand who chooses not to see color and chooses to embrace love.
