Mr. T Learns That Making Fun of Sissies Is Not Allowed

No one stands in the way of politically correct totalitarianism — not even the formidable Mr. T, who has been silenced in his attempt to help sell Snickers bars by intolerant homosexuals:

An advert featuring the A-team actor Mr T has been pulled after complaints in the US that it is offensive to homosexual men.[… The] advert, first shown in Britain on July 13, never aired on American television, but prompted a flood of complaints from the US claiming it was offensive to homosexuals.

During the advert, Mr T, who played B.A. Baracus in the 1980s series The A-Team, pulls up in a large truck next to a speed walker and shouts: “Speed walking. I pity you fool. You are a disgrace to the man race. It’s time to run like a real man.”

He then fires Snickers bars at the man until he breaks into a sprint.

The “flood of complaints” apparently consisted of two homosexuals squealing in outrage from across the ocean to Britain’s Advertising Standards Authority. This sufficed for the ad to be pulled worldwide. Here I was thinking Snickers had nuts.

The forbidden ad:
