A commercial for lubricant Boy Butter is reportedly not airing in Chicago.
Unicorn Booty noted that company founder Eyal Feldman wrote on Boy Butter's blog, "I learned that my brand new Boy Butter commercial, currently airing on this season of RuPaul's Drag Race on VH1 in NYC, LA, San Diego and nationwide on Canada's OutTV was banned from airing on cable TV in Chicago. According to Comcast TV in the so-called liberal windy city of Chicago, [they]did not think viewers could handle the level of gayness in this ad starring sexy ginger, Seth Fornea, who is showing us all how to properly use a butter churn.
"One would think that in the Midwest the sight of a butter churn would bring back nostalgic feelings of nearby dairy farms, but alas, if a gay man is churning that butter, not so much."
"I think it's Chicago's loss and a clear representation of how shamed and stigmatized our sexuality is," said Daniel Robinson, the director and producer of the ad, according to the blog.
RuPaul's Drag Race airs on Fridays on VH1.
