A McDonalds ad in Taiwan where a man tells his father he is gay has caused outrage in the country
An ad for McDonald’s Taiwan showing a boy telling his father he is gay has stirred up controversy in the conservative country.
Religious groups, specifically the Alliance of Taiwan Religious Groups for the Protection of Family, have called for a boycott of the restaurant.
“Because McDonald’s is frequented by many children, it is especially important to oppose the promotion of same-sex behaviour,” the group reportedly said in a statement translated by website Shanghaiist.
In the ad the boy nervously writes on a coffee cup that he likes boys. His father storms out of the restaurant but returns with another cup and writes on it “I accept that you like boys”.
