Mike Melgaard Trolls Homophobes, 2.0
— Daniel Reynolds (@dnlreynolds) September 17, 2015
If there’s one thing that bigotry is excellent for, it’s laughing at the stupidity from whence it came.
So when the homophobes of the universe began attacking Doritos’ rainbow colored chips for being too “gay” the masked vigilante of LGBT social media marketing campaigns came out swashbuckling once more to point out what dolts these people are.
This isn’t the first time internet hero Mike Melgaard has created a fake brand account in an effort to make foolish people look like, well, fools. Back in August when Target announced their movement towards gender-neutral signage Melgaard created a faux-help desk account from Target and trolled haters who were spewing unneeded bigotry out onto the internet.
Now Melgaard is offering a repeat performance, this time over Doritos’ rainbow colored chips that were created in collaboration with Dan Savage’s “It Gets Better Project.”

The tagline for the new Doritos campaign is “There’s Nothing Better Than Being Yourself,” and if you donate at least $10 to the It Gets Better Project, a group founded with the goal to drop suicide and depression rates amongst LGBT teens, Frito-Lay company will ship you your very own bag of their limited supply of Doritos Rainbow chips.
If saving teen’s lives isn’t a good cause, we’re not sure what is. So what’s the fuss all about guys?
Check out some of the hilarious screenshots Melgaard posted to his Facebook profile.
Melgaard himself has been enjoying the internet’s attention, and we’re sure this won’t be the last we hear from this vigilante.
SHARE if you think Melgaard’s is hilarious.
