On Father’s Day, Angel Soft is running a commercial depicting adult children lauding their single mothers for raising them, wishing them happy Father’s Day, and thanking them for being a good father. So, mothers are the new fathers too?
“I am so glad you could be my father, mom”
We don’t hear the backstories (except for the first one) as to why they had no father in their life. More than likely they had single mothers because the mothers fought hard to keep the dad out of their lives. Imagine fathers trying to hijack mothers day like this.
This is an insult to all fathers everywhere, stealing the one day devoted to revering fathers, and giving it to mothers.

Next time, you might want to focus test your ads on, umm, the entire population. Just an FYI: https://t.co/RXZrr5kfUY

So will @AngelSoft do a video on Mothers’ Day thanking single dads, who have to play both roles?

Did @AngelSoft have a video honoring single Dads on Mother’s Day? Seriously asking.

Here are a few more. People just don’t understand especially in this day and time who salute fathers on father’s day like they do moms on Mother’s day?
@AngelSoft Please do a good sentiment analysis on this campaign before trying something so naïve again.

Read the replies to that stupid @AngelSoft tweet. How did they not expect people to call them out?WTH was the point of that?

If, heaven forbid, I ever became a single mom, I wouldn’t be “both parents.” A good father is irreplaceable. https://t.co/rybjtjb6a4
