Skittles' new ad isn't shying away from controversy. Their latest is all about bestiality -- with a walrus -- and some people are up in arms over it.

John Nolte of Breitbart.com musters his best attack on what he calls a Hollywood agenda orchestrated by those who aim to "remove the stigma from bestiality":

You can laugh and say it's just a joke, but through a war of inches, Hollywood continues its assault to define deviancy down and to normalize destructive behavior. Humor is an excellent way to get us used to and to take the shock value out of something hideous and immoral.

Not sure we're buying it. As BoingBoing eloquently puts it, we "have to wonder ... at someone who watches this and thinks to himself, "This will make people want to f*ck walruses."

It doesn't make us want to eat Skittles, either.
