Petition Closed

You may have seen a commercial on your television for Klondike bars. A man has to listen to his wife for a whole five seconds. He struggles through with a look of extreme pain on his face, then celebrates wildly once the five seconds are over.

This extremely sexist commercial perpetuates stereotypes that harm men, women, and the concept of long-term relationships and marriage. It suggests that women have nothing important to say, that men are uncaring thugs that only care about junk food, and that marriage/relationships are a painful struggle for everyone involved.

We want this commercial completely removed. We also want to see a formal apology for sending out this harmful advertisement.
