NARAL Pro-Choice America, one of the nation’s top abortion rights groups, fired off a series of tweets slamming Sunday night’s Super Bowl 50 commercials as sexist, including a Doritos ad featuring an ultrasound that the group said “humanizes” fetuses.

The group started off by calling out Hyundai’s ad with comedian Kevin Hart, who played an overprotective father following his daughter on a date.

“Hey, @Hyundai - taking away your daughter’s autonomy and stalking her on a date isn’t funny,” NARAL wrote.

The group also slammed the carmaker for its ad featuring Ryan Reynolds clones, writing: “Another miss for @Hyundai - In their world, women are bad drivers who get distracted by the mere sight of a man.”

NARAL’s next target was the Snickers ad featuring a grouchy Willem Dafoe, who turned into Marilyn Monroe once he ate the candy bar.

“@SNICKERS, what was up w that commercial? Transphobic & implies women OK w being objectified as long as they have snacks,” the group sneered.

Celebrities like Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson and Soledad O’Brien may have tweeted rave reviews of the Doritos commercial featuring a pregnant woman’s ultrasound, but not NARAL.

“#NotBuyingIt - that @Doritos ad using #antichoice tactic of humanizing fetuses & sexist tropes of dads as clueless & moms as uptight,” the group tweeted.
