Watch: 'Queer Eye's' Jonathan Van Ness Angers One Million Moms by Wearing a Leotard in UberEats Ad

Sunday November 1, 2020

Bad. UberEats. Bad.

That is the message that the conservative activist group One Million Moms is making today in criticizing a new ad campaign by UberEats, the food delivery service offered by the ride-sharing giant, that features Queer Eye" star, Jonathan Van Ness.

In a report on The Hill, the group, a branch of the American Family Association, has garnered some 6,300 signatures thus far in an online campaign.

"Shame on Uber Eats for attempting to brainwash viewers with an agenda instead of focusing on providing a helpful service, especially during a pandemic," the group wrote in the petition. "Instead of making audiences lose their appetite by glamorizing an LGBTQ lifestyle, Uber Eats should focus on what it does and remain neutral on controversial issues."

Calling Van Ness a "crossdresser" (he is seen in one of two commercials with gymnast Simone Biles wearing her leotard), the group claims the ads "screams liberal agenda and turns off potential Uber Eats customers."

They also continue to slam Van Ness while promoting a documentary produced by American Family Studios:

"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. Rather, it's imperative to answer a person's tough questions about gender and sexuality from a biblical perspective in a caring way like American Family Studios has done in its new documentary, 'In His Image.' Hundreds of thousands have already viewed this documentary and have responded with praise on how tasteful and helpful it has been to them."
