Comcast TV Bans Boy Butter Commercial In Chicago Starring Red Hot Seth Fornea

Homophobic Comcast Bans Boy Butter Commercial In Chicago Starring Red Hot Seth Fornea

 

The brand new Boy Butter commercial, starring red hot ginger Seth Fornea (pictured above) currently airing on this season of Rupaul’s Drag Race on VH1 in NYC, LA, San Diego and nationwide on Canada’s OutTV was banned from airing on cable TV in Chicago by ComCast TV.

Despite having no problem airing 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 hot gay man, it is a much different story.

“I think it’s Chicago’s loss and a clear representation of how shamed and stigmatized our sexuality is.” says Daniel Robinson, the director/producer of this banned Boy Butter commercial.

“It’s ‘a sexist and homophobic double standard’ said Eyal Feldman, who founded Boy Butter. He added: ‘My hope is that by continuing to push the boundaries of what is acceptable and palatable on TV, Boy Butter can create a space where gay men can watch images of themselves, not only in the shows that we watch but also the advertising that sponsors them.’
