Last summer, The Marriage Alliance outraged Australians with a badly-produced antigay marriage commercial that ran, ironically enough, during a commercial break for I Am Cait.

This week, they’re back — with an ad featuring a flummoxed young professional who’s about to be unceremoniously hanged with a rainbow-hued noose. And right at her desk, too.

The copy reads: “Same Sex Marriage Increases PC bullying In The Workplace.”

Australian MP Tim Watts is, of course, highly displeased:

While the Australian Marriage Alliance claims to speak for mainstream Australia and the silent majority, it will not disclose who funds it, or who who is a member of it. This is a group that regularly quotes data opposing marriage equality but refuses to disclose the sources for this data…”

Meanwhile, Twitter users wasted no time in voicing their own outrage and concern, as evidenced by the tweet below.
