Is This The Most Racist Ad Ever? [Video]
Mountain Dew premiered a new online ad last week, and yesterday they pulled it from the Internet after a huge public backlash. Some people are calling it the most racist commercial ever. That’s probably up for debate, but it’s pretty bad. Basically, it’s a police lineup with four black gangbangers and a goat.
And a battered white woman on crutches comes in to identify the guilty one, and the goat keeps threatening her with more violence if she talks. Finally she runs away screaming and says she can’t choose. (The commercial was made by Tyler the Creator, from the rap collective Odd Future. It was supposed to be a creative partnership between Mountain Dew and Tyler. Apparently this commercial was a follow-up to an earlier commercial where the goat attacked a waitress to get some Mountain Dew.
