Launched by the conservative group, One Million Moms, the petition claims that Uber Eats is “attempting to brainwash viewers” by featuring the Queer Eye star.
“Instead of making audiences lose their appetite by glamorizing a LGBTQ lifestyle, Uber Eats should focus on what it does and remain neutral on controversial issues,” the petition reads.
Simone caught wind of the petition and called them out for it.
“The world we live in makes me sad,” she started, adding that she’d “do x1000000 more commercials with you [Jonathan] just to piss everyone off!”
Simone added that all “LGBTQIA will always have my support and feel welcome on my socials.”
Uber Eats also echoed Simone‘s statement about the petition.
“At Uber Eats, we’re unapologetically committed to representing the flavor spectrum,” they shared in a statement to People. “From tacos to talent, we like it spicy. JVN and Simone serve gymnastic prowess and ferosh self-confidence, qualities millions of moms everywhere can—and do—support.”
