Apretude complaint: Disgusting Commercial

Complaint from sickofstupidity reported on 19 December 2022 about Apretude

New complaint
Complaint pending
Complaint resolved
Complaint closed

My complaint:

The commercial for a drug that prevents HIV before the fudge packers have sex is not appropriate for the vast majority of the non-LGBTQ population. Who is their audience? This is just another provocation of normal people with something promoting the deviant behavior illustrated in this sick commercial. LGBTQ have the right to do what they want in private. Shoving it down the normal population’s throat just generates hostility.

Suggested solution:

Take the Apretude commercial off the air. It is more offensive than informative to the vast majority of the viewing population.

The fool that just wrote the last comment does not even realize that more heterosexual men “fudge-pack” women in the homosexual men do with one another. Another straight and hate-filled, toxic moron patting himself on the back how “normal” he is. One has to wonder, how insecure and doubtful about his own sexuality and manhood he has to be…to be so full of hate and scorn for homosexuals that are consenting adults and have the right to have sex, protect themselves from a deadly virus and yes….legally marry in all “50” states since 2015!

Degenerates don’t understand why the ad is disgusting to normal people. You are the ones filled with rage born out of your rebellion against God and His natural order.

Small kids don’t need to see men and women kissing either on commercials but that’s all over the place. I would assume your taking the time out of your day to negatively comment on those commercials too? Get a life and stop shaming other people because your have your one fucked up issues to the and masks to help you sleep at night. And all the Bible thumpers; what’s with so much hate in your heart, doesn’t seem to godly or something “he” would approve of either, check yourselves before anyone else. Seek help, peace and understanding for all.

More and more people are sleeping with multiple partners at one time. Bi-sexual or straight. So, even thought someone might identify.has bi, gay, or straight..engaging in different sexual acts on occasion. We can’t just target one or two sexual orientations. Should represent all.

It’s completely disgusting watching “those” gay HIV medication commercials. Those of you with HIV know you have HIV! We don’t need to see commercials during prime time television, watching two dudes making out. Totally inappropriate!! Except you are HIV positive, go to a private HIV island and die.!!!!

The thing I’m trying to figure out is who are commercials like this trying to target. It’s about medication, so just tell what the medication is for. What’s the point of showing two men/ladies kissing…none because sexual orientation has nothing to do with what the medication is for. You all are stereotyping that the medication is only for same sex relationships. I’m not going to call anyone names but no one wants to see these commercials especially when you’re watching television with your children. In other words, this isn’t normal and people don’t like for this to be pushed down… Read more »

This commercial is ridiculous and they have it on during the day when small kids can watch it and ask questions about what’s going on really?? Why should we have to explain to small children like two men are kissing?

I totally agree. People who have the decease know what caused it. Just limit the presentation to the public in a way that does not entice young minds which are sponges to do what they see on TV.

It’s called educating. Last time I checked that part of a parents job. Shielding them from it isn’t going to stop them from seeing it out in the real world… you now the real world where people don’t bend over backwards to adjust to your views.

Commercial targets homosexuals and black people as being the two groups that have problems with HIV, which is an infection that anyone can get, including heterosexuals and caucasians. Talk about profiling – HIV is not a virus that infects people based solely on their sexual orientation or skin color. The makers of this drug and their marketing department should be censored.

HIV started because of homosexuality then the jerks that were having sex with men sometimes brought it home to their female partners. So at least they got part of the ad correct.

I think you need to do a little bit more research Nonie. Speaking with out knowing facts just makes you look like you don’t know what you’re talking about. I believe it’s also ignorance and that isn’t a good look on anyone.

Commercials about medication, should be just that. Please just explain what the medication is used for. I feel it’s offensive seeing two men or ladies being attracted to each other and kissing. It goes against my religious beliefs and I prefer not to see it on National TV. I am offended that my children and grandchildren could see these commercials. It’s on there and there’s no time to turn it off or switch the channel before it’s already seen whether you mind or not seeing it. I do mind. Please remove these offensive commercials for Aperture.

A total of less than 9% of the U.S. population are trans, gay, lesbian and all those other letters put together! 91% of the U.S. population is heterosexual!! WHY, With such a small majority, is the gay agenda being forced down our throats all day long?? WHY???????????????????

Your commercial for Apretude is inappropriate and perverted. God created male and female and for marriage to be between one man and one woman. Please do not mock God by making homosexual relationships appear normal in your ads. If God’s pattern was followed perhaps your medication wouldn’t be needed. Please pull the ads in the name of decency. You can still sell you medication without showing same sex couples kissing.

Agree 100%! Maybe we need to get a petition and have that nasty commercial taken off the tv, its okay to sell the meds but the same sex kissing and hugging is very inappropriate and no need to seen on tv.

The best we can do is file a complaint to the FCC about the inappropriate advertising. If enough people make noise about it the company will have to take it off the air or be in violation of the law.

How is it promoting homosexuality the commercial it was talking about the medication. I think you missed the point. Oh wait no…. No you didn’t… you’re just trying to spread hate. Something that isn’t about medication.

Men kissing or looking sexually at each other is not how we were created. God created us to fall in love with the opposite sex not same sex. No matter what your agenda is, it will never be right. Promoting this is offensive to more people than the ones you are trying to appeal to. This will not be blessed in any way and is completely against the plan of Christ. Read word and you will see what I’m trying to tell you. I don’t hate you one bit, but I am offended when I see this on my tv… Read more »

How about stop shoving your religious agenda on the rest of the world. I find it offensive. Promoting and trying to control the public by shoving your religious agenda is disgusting. No one cares to be blessed by your god. Y’all preach about god loving all. But y’all just preach to hate anyone that isn’t like you. Now that’s disgusting. Sounds like Christ is going to condemn you to hell for hating on his children.

All I know is this commercial is not a adequate one to show in a commercial. I have a disabled teen. That does not comprehend any of men kissing in commercial. Like really?? You don’t need to show that to know about a medication,let’s be more considerate towards others disabilities. Just like you expect others to understand lgtbq

Yes please either drop the commercial or make it about a serious illness instead of displaying same-sex attraction. There’s 0 need to show contradictions. Do you believe in family values? Do you know that parents watch TV with their children and find it quite embarrassing. This can cause arguments. Cause schism. Hurt those who have loss family members to AIDS. There’s others who have left same-sex attraction only to have this coming into their living room. It’s done in poor taste. 0 creativity. It’s disrespectful.

This commercial does not portionally target its audience. It’s saying only black, gay, and transsexuals get HiV/Aids. The commercial is annoying as hell on streaming services.

This advertizement is so HOMOPHOBIC. Ignorant publicists need to make an appology. HIV is not a gay desease. This is a Reagan administration point of view. Perhaps they hired 70yo people to know what is relevant today. Out of touch with reality. People should check statistics before choosing a target demographic.

Lets bring religion into this. Stupid people with narcissistic personalities and cumpultion to judge others. Here is a quote from the BIBLE: Judge not and you shall not be judged. AND love thy neighbor. Also ask any priest or pastor depending on your personal flavor of christianity and they will tell you, no one sin is worse then the other in the eyes of GOD. So if you subscribe to the belief that homosexuality is a sin, remember you are not free of sin even if you think you are what by the way is a sin in itself. Mind… Read more »

I agree that I don’t want my children seeing this stuff! He can’t unsee it once he sees it. Heck, I can’t unsee it! They should have those commercials on a LBGQ dedicated station. Just like Spanish TV there should be gay TV.. I don’t care that they are gay, but I don’t want to see it. It confuses little children as well.
