Nabisco criticized for using drag queen in Mother’s Day ad

Mother’s Day was on Sunday and Nabsico released a Mother’s Day ad for Chips Ahoy! cookies featuring a drag queen to deliver a message to all the moms out there.

Vanessa Vanjie, the drag queen in the video, talks about how grateful she is to have a mom who supports her (?) through “all my craziness, loves on me and buys me all the Chips Ahoy! cookies.”

Awesome!

But some people weren’t thrilled with the choice of messenger from Nabisco and even accused the drag queen of appropriating culture.
