My 2 Cents: Super Bowl Ad Spurs Chip Controversy

There was no wardrobe malfunction, but there was controversy at this year's Super Bowl.

We talked last night about how many of you who wrote in and felt Beyonce's halftime performance recognizing the Black Panthers was racist and anti-police.

I figured that was the only controversy, but I was wrong, now there's a chip controversy, tortilla chip to be exact.

I didn't see it coming.

This Doritos commercial, which many of you called your favorite or the funniest, showed a pregnant woman undergoing an ultrasound, while dad eats Doritos. You see the baby on the ultrasound trying to reach the chip dad's waving over her stomach.

Finally, mom gets annoyed, grabs the chip and throw it across the room, and then it's implied on the ultrasound and by their screams that the baby goes after the chip and out of the womb.

I thought it was funny, so did many of you, but NARAL Pro-Choice America didn't. In fact, they tweeted out that the Doritos ad used the anti-choice tactic of humanizing fetuses.

I hate to tell you this NARAL, but most couples who have ultrasounds when they're pregnant, believe what they're looking at is a human waiting to be born.

And objecting to a Doritos commercial, for crying out loud, just makes you look silly.

I'm Kelly Ogle and that's My 2 Cents.
