Mars pull Mr T ad after "anti-gay" complaints

Another perplexing advert "pull".

Mars has canned a TV ad featuring A-Team star Mr T harassing a speed walker for being a "disgrace to the man race", after complaints in the US that it is offensive to gay people.

You can see the advert below. I laughed at the Heinz Deli Mayo "Gay kiss" ad and I laughed at this one.

Are US companies becoming a little over-senstive?
