The controversy surrounding Rainbow Doritos, the special-edition snack released to build support for gay and lesbian youth-isn’t letting up anytime soon.

After the rainbow-colored chips debuted last week– in partnership with the pro-LBGT non-profit group It Gets Better–people have been taking to social media and the Doritos Facebook page to voice their displeasure and threaten Frito-Lay boycotts.

And now Republican presidential candidate Mike Huckabee is adding a dissenting voice by asking Frito-Lay, a subsidiary of PepsiCo that produces Doritos, to end its relationship with the group and its outspoken co-founder, Dan Savage.

“Please tell me that you will publicly disassociate yourself with his hate-filled rhetoric, bigotry toward people of faith, and the violent threats he has issued,” Huckabee wrote in a letter to the company.

Savage is known for lambasting conservatives—including Huckabee–with profanity-laced attacks targeting Christian leaders and the faith. The former Arkansas governor also pointed to an example where Savage told presidential hopeful Ben Carson to “suck my d#ck” after Carson, a medical doctor, tried to argue that being gay was a choice.

“I am stunned that a corporation with a long history of making snack food would partner with someone whose vile, vulgar violent and anti-Christian bigotry is well documented,” Huckabee wrote in his letter.
