Supermarket Chain Tesco Under Fire For Including Gay Couple, Muslim Family in Christmas Ad

British supermarket chain Tesco has refused to apologize following complaints for featuring a Muslim family and a gay couple in a Christmas ad.

As part of its #EveryonesWelcome campaign, the one-minute “Turkey, Every Which Way” spot  shows a variety of families preparing Christmas dinner, including two men with a baby.

Tesco features a Sikh, two gay dads, and even a group of Muslim hijabis in its Christmas ad. Not a dog collar or a Nativity scene in sight. https://t.co/LClm1ltaL3

Also @Tesco you’ve singlehandedly stopped a large proportion of bigots using your store this Christmas! As all my Muslim friends celebrate Christmas and I shop there … thanks from us! ❤️ #everyoneswelcome

Tesco #EveryonesWelcome Christmas ad welcomes everyone to get involved except Christians who are not reflected. What a new way of showing diversity?

Said Tesco in response to the backlash:

“Everyone is welcome at Tesco this Christmas and we’re proud to celebrate the many ways our customers come together over the festive season. [The campaign] will celebrate the many ways we come together at Christmas, and how food sits at the heart of it all.”
