Ford proudly unveils ‘very gay’ car with rainbows and glitter designed to shut homophobes up

When a homophobic troll described the new blue Ford Ranger Raptor as “gay”, Ford just upped the ante and created a “Very Gay Raptor” instead.

Ford of Germany unveiled an LGBT+ version of the popular truck on Friday (27 August) in response to a commenter on social media who criticised the ‘Performance Blue’ colour as “gay” and asked them to paint it in “black and gold or camo” instead. The comment “stopped us in our tracks,” Ford said, so they clapped back with an animation showing what an actual gay car would look like. Then they decided to “take it one step further” and make it for real.

The new and improved “Very Gay Raptor” is adorned in rainbows and gold dust, complete with a pink love heart on the boot.

“‘Very Gay’ was a compliment, right?” the company joked on Twitter.

Well done, Ford! That's a truck and a half!  :)

I've said it before and I'll say it again. We shouldn't pin our hopes on governments fixing things for us, it's business that drives change.

I just spent the last hour examining the three vehicles in my driveway and reflecting on my years of DIY maintenance and I'm stumped. How do I tell a boy car from a girl car? I think I have a hetero pair because I keep finding Hotwheels in the driveway. Good for Ford for running with this rather than running from it.

Ford Motor Company sticks it to the homophobes.  Who would have thought?
