A Cheerios ad featuring a interracial couple and their adorable daughter triggered a flood of negative comments, but General Mills is standing by the ad.

The company was forced to disable the comments on the YouTube video when they took a racist turn.

Many people have posted comments on the Cheerios Facebook page, thanking them for the ad

Love, love, love the new commercial! Please don't stop airing it! said one person.

Thank you for the ad on mixed race families. I don't buy Cheerios, but will now!? said another.
