Cookie company Chips Ahoy! celebrated Mother’s Day by posting a video of a drag queen to social media.
The video featured Jose Cancel, who uses the stage name Vanessa Vanjie Mateo and competed in the most recent season of “RuPaul’s Drag Race.”
The actor encouraged social media users to buy cookies for “your real mama, your drag mama, whichever mama, somebody, whoever taking care of you, whoever you feel or consider your mama” in the video.

“#HappyMothersDay to your moms, your drag moms and everyone who celebrates you being YOU,” Chips Ahoy! captioned the video, which it posted to Twitter and Instagram.
The cookie company was mocked and scorned for the video on social media.
Maybe just sell chocolate chip cookies, and leave drag queens out of it.
