Amid The Bud Light-Dylan Mulvaney Backlash, Ford’s ‘Very Gay’ Trucks Have Resurfaced

  • The Ford Raptor is very gay. That’s not a middle school joke, it’s an actual vehicle offered by The Ford Motor Company, which created a special edition “very gay” version of its Raptor pick-up truck two years ago, complete with a rainbow paint job. Yet nobody even noticed it until recently — which sort of makes the whole thing a lot more funny.
  • On May 18, Robby Starbuck tweeted, “Did you know that Ford has a truck they call their ‘Very Gay Raptor’? Check out their ad where the truck ‘comes out’ of mud to reveal its trans/queer flag colors.” 
  • Technically, it isn’t an advertisement — it’s just a social media video. According to The National Pulse’s Raheem Kassam, a spokesperson for Ford has been very quick to point that out.
