Canada Dry Salutes ‘Modern Families’ With Photo That Excludes Gay Couples

Screen Shot 2014-10-27 at 8.49.49 PM

There may be 238 modern drinks that you can make with ginger ale, but Canada Dry missed its one chance to salute modern families after it posted a photo on its official Facebook page October 9th that didn’t include a single gay couple anywhere.

The post in question stated “We’re celebrating families big and small, traditional and modern. Enter the contest now,” that included a link to an ongoing contest, and if you take a look at the photo below, you’ll notice that in between the single parents, mixed family parents and really old parents, there’s not a single identifiable gay couple to represent the “modern family” that Canada Dry was hoping to connect with?

Do you see a gay couple?


If Canada Dry doesn’t recognize gay couples as “modern” then what the hell is a “modern family”?
