John Goldwater, CEO of Archie Comics responds to the hackling of the few Moms of 1 Million Moms and American Family Association (AFA) over the latest edition of Archie where Kevin Keller is getting married to his African-American male partner.
“We stand by Life with Archie #16. As I’ve said before, Riverdale is a safe, welcoming place that does not judge anyone. It’s an idealized version of America that will hopefully become reality someday. We’re sorry the American Family Association/One Million Moms feels so negatively about our product, but they have every right to their opinion, just like we have the right to stand by ours. Kevin Keller will forever be a part of Riverdale, and he will live a happy, long life free of prejudice, hate and narrow-minded people.”
Take that, you bunch of douche-bags!!!
After a failed attempt to pressurize JC Penney to fire Ellen Degeneres as their spoke person for being openly gay, American Family Association AFA and 1 Million Moms got themselves a new target…Archies Comics, asking Toys R Us to remove them from their shelves.
The latest issue includes a gay Kevin Keller, who first debuted 2 years back and sports a cover picture of him getting married to his male lover caught the attention of a thousand desperate housewives who call them 1 Million Moms.
Their letter to the retail chain Toys R Us urging them to remove the copies ends with ” Please remove all the same-sex “Just Married – Archie” comic books immediately from your shelves. My decision to shop in your stores depends on it.”
If only these retarded moms got a little bit of education and intellect, they would have realized what they just did. They just made the sale of this edition of Archie comic soar, thanks to the free publicity. The same way JC Penney got millions when these Moms chose to attack them.
Although they don’t seem to have learnt any lesson, what lesson have we learnt? If you want publicity, and do extensive marketing for your product or company without spending a dime, just grab these stupid housewives’ attention. They will do it for you and free of cost. You can sit back and enjoy the mulah! And they might bring you freshly baked cup-cakes too…
