Biracial Cheerios Girl and Parents Interview: ‘Excited’ About Negative Comments – 6/12/13
Published on Jun 12, 2013
6/12/13 – Six-year-old Grace Colbert, star of the Cheerios commercial, and her parents, visited MSNBC‘s Thomas Roberts to share their take on the racist backlash the ad received soon after it premiered. “Being part of a biracial family, it’s just the reality,” Christopher Colbert, the father of the six-year-old Grace, told MSNBC on Tuesday. “We’re also part of the face of America.”
Colbert added that he was “excited” about the reactions to the commercial, both good and bad.
“Being a biracial family is just a reality. We’re also a part of the face of America, and so America just needs to see that this is just a way of life and that this is just the way life is today,” Colbert said during the interview. “I wasn’t upset or anything I was pretty much really excited to have this type of reaction so we could see where we still stand in America.”
The six-year-old actress’ mother, Janet Colbert, said that her daughter thought all the attention the commercial was getting must have been because of her great smile.
