Removal of Wonderful Pistachios' Offensive Ad #shouttogether

This petition had 372 supporters

I know Wonderful Pistachios is just trying to make a buck. They’re attempting to sell bags of nuts and increase their revenue. I get it. I know they’re wanting to sell a product.

But, in order to do so, they’re making a joke at the expense of orphaned children, those with disabilities, and the oppressed. 

I wish they’d thought differently before spending $55 million on an ad campaign they thought was funny.

I shout because it's not funny.

The orphan crisis is not funny. The children who are sedated and starved within institutions are not laughing. Families who daily demonstrate unconditional love in hopes of undoing abuse and neglect, they don’t see this as a laughing matter either. 

When will advertisers learn the truth about orphans? 

When will they see that loss, trauma, suffering, and pain of innocent children is not funny?

When we raise our voices and #shouttogether. That’s when. 

I don’t find joy in creating a ruckus and starting trouble. I find joy in children walking out of orphanages for the very last time. And it’s for those children – the ones who have been given hope and new lives – it’s for them that we shout.
