Spot shows Seth Fornea showing viewers how to properly use a butter churn
Boy Butter banned in the Windy City?
The owner of the lubricant brand says a commercial is currently airing during Rupaul’s Drag Race in New York City, Los Angeles, San Diego and throughout Canada has been banned from airing on cable TV in Chicago.
The spot features sexy ginger stud Seth Fornea showing viewers how to properly use a butter churn.
‘One would think that in the Mid West the sight of a butter churn would bring back nostalgic feelings of nearby dairy farms, but alas if a gay man is churning that butter, not so much,’ writes Boy Butter founder Eyal Feldman writes on the Boy Butter blog.
Feldman complains about what he considers a ‘sexist and homophobic double standard.’
‘Our intention with this commercial was to make a gay version of the sexy Super Bowl ads and tame it down to be as “PG” as possible, so as to avoid this type of ban,’ he writes.
‘Take for example the 2015 Carl’s Jr. Super Bowl ad starring Charlotte McKinney, which is basically porn in comparison. A sexy busty woman being suggestive and showing a lot of skin is fine but if you just replace that woman with a gay man, it is a much different story.’
