The ads feature Van Ness, who last year
announced they identify as non-binary, and gymnast Simone Biles.
“Casting a cross-dresser in its ads
screams liberal agenda and turns off potential Uber Eats customers,”
Cole wrote in an email to supporters.
“Shame on Uber Eats for attempting to
brainwash viewers with an agenda instead of focusing on providing a
helpful service, especially during a pandemic.”
“For anyone curious or struggling
with his or her sexual identity, watching someone prance around in
the opposite sex's clothing is not the answer,” Cole wrote. The
