Uber Eats forced to edit peanut allergy joke from commercial because people with peanut allergies whined about it
There is often a warning label on peanut butter jars that reads “contains nuts.” That is there for extremely incompetent individuals who are so incredibly stupid you wonder how they are even able to remember to breathe. It also happens that those are the same individuals who would take offense and cry about a joke that the rest of the population wouldn’t even think twice about.
The Super Bowl had an ad where someone ate peanut butter and ended up getting an allergic reaction in the skit. But some group called the “Food Allergy Research & Education” has taken offense to that ad for no logical reason except the fact that they need attention. But the dumbest part about all of this is that Uber decided to listen to their asinine cries and edited the ad.

The ad, from creative ad agency Special Group, also shows regular people making comically absent-minded goofs. But one scene was decidedly unfunny for many: A man eating a spoonful of peanut butter from a jar — who has broken out in hives and whose left eye has swollen shut in an allergic reaction — glances down at the food label and remarks, “There’s peanuts in peanut butter? Oh, it’s the primary ingredient.”
The ad was slammed by not-for-profit advocacy group Food Allergy Research & Education, which said in a statement: “We’re incredibly disappointed by @UberEats’ use of life-threatening food allergies as humor in its Super Bowl ad. The suffering of 33M+ Americans with this condition is no joke. Life-threatening food allergy is a disease, not a diet. Enough is enough.”
Uber should have just ignored these insane creatures and given no thought to their illogical objections. But instead, they caved and listened to these snowflake-like demands under the guise of not offending anyone, ever, for anything.
No one with a peanut allergy cared about that. It’s literally a joke. But the group is acting as if they poisoned people with peanut butter.
I am pretty sure that nearly everyone with a nut allergy knows not to eat a spoonful of peanut butter.
The reason why this group went and cried to Uber is not because they think people would be offended by any of this. It's because we currently live in a society that worships victims. And too many people these days will say anything to turn themselves into victims.
But peanut butter jokes don't victimize anyone and it's even more asinine that Uber catered to this.
Mob rule should not dictate how giant corporations joke around in their marketing material. And any company that acquiesces like that is just as pathetic.
That said, the joke was not even funny. And all I have left to say is "'Much Ado about Nothing."
