I can't even really put my finger on how I would classify its offensiveness. I do not think it was either racist or misogynist.
I can sort of get why some people may think it's "racist", but I think that is simply "coincidental". I wouldn't call it racist.
If all the people in the line-up had been white, would that make it anti-white?

I think the reason I find it repugnant has more to do with the battered woman who is intimidated. But I don't find it "misogynist" either.
I just find it repugnant. Lacks class. Poor taste.
That's simply my opinion.

Do I hold it against Pepsico? No.

Its not racist, but its pretty dumb. Though the Dew W I made me laugh.


Honestly, they all know who Golfwang and Tyler the Creator is, along with what Loiter Squad is. I think they made it like this intentionally because controversy always means more sales.

Yes.. but then you ignore the controversial aspect and focus on the lighter side.
Don't give an ounce of satisfaction to rubbish.

I read that the ad might've been done on purpose just so they can ban it...That makes people talk (just as we're doing) and can receive more word-of-mouth advertising than the actual ad would give...

Plausible...
