The popular candy Twix has launched a new Halloween-themed commercial that is drawing major backlash.
The ad features a cross-dressing child who is dressed as a princess.
When the cross-dressing child is asked why he’s dressed “like a girl,” he answers, “dressing like this makes me feel good.”
The ad shows neighborhood girls who question why the boy is wearing a costume when it “isn’t Halloween yet.”
The boy appears sad following these remarks from the girls.
When the boy opens his front door, he is met by a mysterious new nanny who is dressed as a goth-looking witch.
At no point does the ad show or mention a Twix candy bar, Daily Wire notes.
After a bully claims the boy and his nanny “look weird,” the nanny uses her magic power to blow the bigger boy away.
“The implication is that he may be gone forever,” Daily Wire adds.

Something wicked this way comes.

Here’s a look at some of the responses to the ad:
Best-selling author J.D. Vance, who is currently running for a Senate seat in Ohio, retweeted the video, saying, “These people ruin everything.”
Chris Buskirk, editor of the conservative journal American Greatness, warned, “They want your children and they will stop at nothing to get them.”

Conservative pundit and blogger Samuel Sey noted, “This ad supports two separate kinds of child abuse.”
Finally, Southern Baptist pastor and professor Denny Burk tweeted, “So the message is this. 1. Lie to children about how God made them. 2. Anyone who opposes this lie is by definition a villain. 3. It’s funny to destroy the people who oppose the lies. I don’t do boycotts, but this one is actually making me reconsider.”
Transgender propaganda has become more ubiquitous in corporate marketing in recent years.
As The Daily Wire previously reported, in 2019, razor company Gillette featured a dad teaching his daughter who believes she’s a boy how to shave her face.
“Growing up, I was always trying to figure out what kind of man I want to become and I’m still trying to figure out what kind that I want to become,” teen trans activist Samson Bonkeabantu Brown says in the video. The commercial closes with the company’s iconic tagline, made ironic by its new political agenda, “The best a man can get.”
