Homophobes Attack Doritos For LGBT Campaign And Get Hilariously And Deservedly Trolled

Doritos recently released a limited edition (and presumably amazingly delectable) rainbow-colored Doritos chips. The promotion is in association with, and support of the It Gets Better Project, a campaign that provides support to LGBT youth.

 

 

Some soon to be former loyal customers were none too impressed with caring, humane and frankly awesome campaign and decided to vent to the company’s Facebook page.

 

What they didn’t account for was Facebook user Mike Melgaard creating a fake Doritos For Help page and trolling the hell out of them!

The bags were designed to celebrate the LGBT community “in boldest, most colorful way possible”.

 

If you are looking to pick yourself up a bag, you won’t find them in your local grocery store – the chips are only available to people who donate $10 or more to the project.

 

Mike Melgaard’s hilarious, cutting responses do not speak on behalf of the Doritos company, but one imagines an unspoken nod of thanks and respect may have been sent his way from the chip giant.

 

Each bag in the series contains the rainbow-colored chips and an inspiring quote on the outside of the package. The ironic thing in all of this is that the people leaving these vitriolic quotes could probably do with a positive quote or two!

 

The It Gets Better Project began in September 2010, when podcast host and activist Dan Savage made a YouTube video with his partner to give hope to LGBT young people facing harassment for who they are.

If you wish to purchase a bag and support this amazing cause, check out the It Get’s Better Project. The website encourages those who donate to share their story to inspire others.
