CBS rejects gay-oriented ad yet again

Hilary Duff and Wanda Sykes recently fronted a new ad campaign to address the use of derogatory and homophobic vernacular, specifically with regards to the saying, “that’s so gay.” The Think Before You Speak public service announcements seek to educate adolescents’ about the negative impact that their language can have on others. Unfortunately, CBS refused to air the public service announcements during the Super Bowl. This is the second consecutive year that CBS has rejected a gay-oriented advertisement, and yet they accepted a pro-life advertisement that ran during the Super Bowl this year. Check out the ads below and share your thoughts.
