    Doritos' new rainbow colored corn chips to support the LGBT community

    -Move over Oreos.

    Doritos now has a new rainbow-colored corn chip in support of gay and lesbian teens -- and they're already causing a stir.

    Frito-Lay, the company that makes the snack food, unveiled Doritos Rainbows Thursday, a limited-edition version of its Cool Ranch-flavored tortilla that come in shades of green, blue, purple, red, and orange inspired by colors of the Gay Pride flag.

    "Doritos Rainbows chips are a first-of-its-kind product supporting the LGBT community. Doritos the brand has stood 'for the bold,' and we believe there is nothing bolder than being yourself," Ram Krishnan, Frito-Lay's chief marketing officer, said in a release.

    You won't be able to find these corn chips in stores. They will be mailed to people who donate at least $10 to the It Gets Better Project, an organization started to encourage gay and lesbian teenagers who've been bullied. During the promotion, donors and supporters will also be encouraged to share photos and videos on through a special website and on social media using the hashtag #bolderandbetter.

    The non-profit group was started by Dan Savage, an gay rights activist and outspoken critic of the religious right who is known to publicly lambaste people who's views he doesn't support...

    More pathetic pandering! Should they create extra large chips to represent overweight kids that have been bullied as well?

    BTW, not picking on overweight kids, but any kid that is different is bullied. I really have no tolerance for anyone that is bullied for any reason.

    Doritos is being hostile to LGBT supporters by attempting to poison them with those color additives.

    the thing is, companies do tie-ins all the time..

    they just hooked up (sic) with a LGBT (are those the right letters? I can never keep them straight.. ha..) charity .. folks give to the charity and they get a reward.

    They're not the first and they won't be the last.. if you're going to dump every company is trying to get their business, you're going to have to stop using a cell, start growing all your own food, forget a bank.. etc.. etc..
