Gay kiss unnerves U.K. mayonnaise eaters

Heinz America is by no means alone in its reactionary homophobia. England's response to this ad for Heinz Deli Mayo puts them in step with us, for sure.

Which is odd, because you’d think any country responsible for this guy would know how to handle this situation.
