Snickering Homophobics

According to Adfreak, the new Snickers ad that many termed "homophobic" has been pulled. This is about a week after Bob Garfield's open letter to Omnicom President & CEO John Wren was published, accusing him and his companies of producing homophobic ads, citing 3 in particular (one of which being the Snickers spot).

How do you even sell a Mr.-T-Shooting-Snickers-Out-of-a-Gun-at-a-Flamboyant-Man idea to a client???? REALLY????
