SEATTLE, April 4 (UPI) -- Graham cracker company Honey Maid released a new ad responding to anti-gay backlash to their "Wholesome Love" commercial that was inclusive of gay families.

After Honey Maid released an ad that included families with gay parents and interracial parents, saying, "This is wholesome," they received a resounding backlash on social media with people calling the ad "disgusting."

Honey Maid printed all the responses to the ad, positive and negative, and asked two artists to show how Honey Maid took their feedback with a wholesome helping of love.

Both ads have gone viral thanks to the controversy, with many praising the company for their stance.
