I don’t watch much television but when David gets home from work he does like to catch up on the news. I enjoy hearing the daily updates, although not the daily death tolls of COVID.
I keep seeing the commercial with Simone Biles for Uber Eats.
I did a little looking into the meaning of this commercial, beyond Uber Eats. I was pretty surprised at the responses I read….
This is one: https://www.cbsnews.com/news/one-million-moms-criticizes-uber-eats-ads-simone-biles-jonathan-van-ness/
Here is another: https://www.insider.com/simone-biles-jonathan-van-ness-uber-eats-ad-christian-group-2020-11
And another: https://dlisted.com/2020/11/05/simone-biles-defends-her-ubereats-ad-with-jonathan-van-ness-against-one-million-moms-homophobic-petition/
My opinion: I think it is a little weird but totally harmless. If you don’t like it, don’t watch it. If it offends you remember commercials are made for millions of viewers not just you. If people are afraid that seeing such a commercial will “make” their loved ones become someone who is transgender, gay, gender-neutral, or anything other than heterosexual, let it be known there are many more influences in life, much stronger than a silly commercial for take-out food.
