Nabisco’s Chips Ahoy! cookie brand on Sunday mocked people who were upset over the company’s Mother’s Day ad that featured a recent contestant on “RuPaul’s Drag Race.”

Jose Cancel, a drag queen who uses the stage name Vanessa Vanjie Mateo, recorded a video for the cookie company urging people to buy cookies for their moms and “drag moms” for Mother’s Day.

“Your real mama, your drag mama, whichever mama, whoever taking care of you, whoever you feel or consider your mama, it’s their day today — get them a cookie,” Mr. Cancel said in the video that’s racked up more than 1 million views.

The video is being ratioed on Twitter, meaning it’s receiving far more responses than retweets — many by users who were offended by the beloved cookie brand using a drag queen to push their product.

Chips Ahoy! seems unfazed, however, mocking the haters with a cry-face emoji.
