#Lovewins: Why we love the latest Old Navy ad

So, Old Navy and its supporters shut down internet trolls with love!

It was posted to promote a sale, but Old Navy’s sweet Twitter pic of a mom, dad and little boy turned ugly—quickly. But then it turned lovely again, because in the midst of all the awful trolling, goodness prevailed.

What we see in the picture is a beautiful family. But many took to Twitter with threats of boycotting the clothing store and outright racist posts. UGH!!! So much ugh.

In retort to this ignorance, people started tweeting their own family photos with the hashtags #LoveWins and #LoveIsBlind. We think family is beautiful no matter the colour(s), shape or size and that they should be celebrated #sorrynotsorry.
