Simone Biles Defends Her UberEats Ad With Jonathan Van Ness Against One Million Moms’ Homophobic Petition
bigots group, One Million Moms, have reared their ugly heads to shit on the LGBTQ+ community some more. Now they’re angry at UberEats. No, they didn’t accidentally receive non-gluten-free pasta in their order, they’re mad about more advertisements that they don’t have to watch if they don’t want to. What else could someone have to do with their time?
It seems like Two Morons With Too Much Time On Their Hands couldn’t handle the sight of Queer Eye’s Jonathan Van Ness in a leotard in an UberEats commercial. And JVN’s co-star, Olympic gold medalist gymnast, Simone Biles, wants OMM to know that they can eat rocks because she loves the gays. Of course she does, she’s a gymnast! Without the gays imagine what kind of low-budget outfits would she defy gravity in. What about the glitter? Sequins? She’d be jumping around and doing somersaults in a brown paper bag!
People says that One Million Moms started a petition to get UberEats to stop “glamorizing” the LGBTQ+ “lifestyle” and demanded they “remain neutral on controversial issues.” They continued to say that showing Jonathan dressed up in women’s clothing was not helping people:
“For anyone curious or struggling with his or her sexual identity, watching someone prance around in the opposite sex’s clothing is not the answer.”

Simone had shit to say and she hit up Twitter to let One Million Moms know that she was down with Jonathan and the gay community and that’s that:
the world we live in makes me sad, but I’d do x1000000 more commercials with you just to piss everyone off! The LGBTQIA will always have my support and feel welcome on my socials🤎 https://t.co/CMOrz0nxFZ

UberEats had the same opinion, saying in a statement to People:
“At Uber Eats, we’re unapologetically committed to representing the flavor spectrum. From tacos to talent, we like it spicy. JVN and Simone serve gymnastic prowess and ferosh self-confidence, qualities millions of moms everywhere can—and do—support.”
So far OMM’s petition has 7,000 signatures–so they really need to tell the nine hundred ninety-three thousand other members who haven’t signed yet to do so. And I mean, if men in leotards offend them where was this energy for Avengers: Infinity War?
