Adult baby fury at diver’s brand role

Sunday Sport - - NEWS - By BAR­NEY SAMUELS news@ sun­daysport. co. uk

PROUD new dads Tom Daley and Dustin Lance Black have been un­veiled as the new face of nappy brand Pampers.

But not ev­ery­one’s happy for the cou­ple, who had their son, Rob­bie, through a sur­ro­gate.

Be­cause mem­bers of the adult baby com­mu­nity are FU­RI­OUS at what they’ve de­scribed as “a de­lib­er­ate snub and an in­sult to di­ver­sity”.

Adult baby Pat­ter­son Forbes fumed: “I have seen the ap­point­ment of Tom Daley as a Pampers am­bas­sador de­scribed as pro­gres­sive and a great vic­tory for di­ver­sity.

“What ab­so­lute bol­locks. Tom Daley does not wear nap­pies on a reg­u­lar ba­sis. And I do.

“Pampers have de­cided to de­lib­er­ately snub mem­bers of the adult baby com­mu­nity.

“That is an out­rage and I shall be writ­ing to my lo­cal MP.”

Tom has been an­nounced as Pampers Pure part­ner and brand am­bas­sador for the launch of their new Pure Pro­tec­tion range.

The Olympic diver said it’s a big deal that an iconic brand has cho­sen a same- sex fam­ily to front the cam­paign.

Tom, 24, said: “It’s ab­so­lutely amaz­ing that they called us, a same­sex fam­ily.

“But not only that, it’s want­ing what’s best for your baby, and that’s why we trust Pampers and their Pure prod­ucts.”

A source close to Pampers said: “The world may be ready for two dads flog­ging nap­pies, but adult ba­bies?

“We may be a few years from that just at the mo­ment.”
