Apparently the Pepsi company not only offends blacks but also gays.
Glad I don't drink that garbage.


 


How is that offensive to gays? I think it's pretty funny. The OP video, not so much. I also didn't find it offensive, but it was dumb, lacking any kind of levity whatsoever. This one was a little predictable but good for a slight chuckle.

I guess I should add that I don't get the inside jokes in the OP vid, so I shouldn't be so harsh about it since it makes sense and is funnier to some people.

Yea after I posted I got thinking that it wasn't so much a offence to the gay community but a exploit of the gay community. None the less it is still a banned comercial also so apparently it didn't set well with someone and thus was offensive.

That's hella racist.
Comparing black people to goats?
That's like comparing them to monkeys? Is that not racist either?

I don't mind racist jokes either, I really don't. But a spade's a spade, and that's racist.

My only problem is that it's not funny...well and people saying it's not racist.

Where in these ads are black people compared to goats? While I agree it isn't funny I have a hard time understanding you reasoning here. Can you elaborate on how black people are compared to goats in this ad?

Would like your opinion on this ad that is causing a stir as being racist:

yanked ad

Pepsi has stopped this ad from showing.
Im just wondering, while they were coming up with the idea and filming it, didn't anybody
raise any red flags prior to releasing it to the public?

What actually is the message of this ad anyway?
Blacks and goats beat up on poor blonde white women?
How is this commercial remotely related to a soft drink?

To call it racist must mean there is a purposeful agenda behind it.
Which, at this moment, there is no proof of.













If anything Pepsi is bringing light to the dangerous and growing trend of black on white hate crimes. They should be applauded.

what do the goats say? will someone please think of the goats!

Jokes aside, it's a tough one:
on one side, people see racism all over the place.
Mainly i think whoever came up with this commercial should have included a white person in the lineup just for the sake of avoiding criticism
