Today, SJWs have a massive overreaction to a critic and declare a meme-victory… in the process, proving the critic’s point with authority!
Ford Rolls Out ‘Very Gay’ Truck in Response to Homophobic Troll
By Rachel Shatto, 31 August 2021
When Ford Germany recently unveiled its new blue Ford Ranger Raptor, it got plenty of praise, but there was one piece of feedback the company said “stopped us in our tracks.” A commenter on social media wasn’t a fan of the blue color choice, saying, “Well, that’s a cool car! — But that blue color is very Gay!! Hey Ford! Paint it in BlackNGold or camo!”
They freaked out over one comment about the paint color? Was it the only comment they got?
What happened next was a masterclass in shutting down homophobic trolls.
Hee hee. ‘Dis gonna be good!
In a video released on Twitter by Ford Europe, the automaker revealed its new and improved “Very Gay Raptor” decked out in rainbows and gold glitter. In a statement, the company said it wanted to make its position as an LGBTQ+ ally that stands up to discriminatory speech “very clear.”
Whoa, wait… you changed the ‘gay’ paint scheme exactly the way the ‘homophobe’ suggested, then added a rainbow? Which is it? Are you trying to be more gay or less?
In the video, the truck gets a digital remake with a gold glitter paint job and rainbow decal, and the whole thing ends with the statement “Happy Pride.” But the company took it one step further and gave the truck a real-life makeover. A 60-hour process saw the vehicle draped in rainbow and gold glitter Alpha foil, then topped with rainbow and heart decals.
This is exactly what Internet trolls try to accomplish: provoking massive, hilarious and/or public overreactions. They feed on attention and the intolerant, seared, pinkish amygdalas of Social Justice Warriors are the perfect target.
This isn’t even the first time that Ford has decked out a Gay Pride vehicle. In 1998, the company wrapped a Ford KA in rainbows in commemoration of the first time it participated in Cologne Pride. This year, both vehicles were in attendance for Pride over the weekend.
BOTH vehicles? So, they only had the one previously? This isn’t the first time that Ford Germany has spent money on pandering to pervs. It’s the second time… in 23 years.
Maybe the Rainbow Community is looking for homophobic trolls in the wrong place.
