Mountain Dew is in a mad dash to remove all evidence of one of their ads which is now being called the most racist ad in history according to one web blogger.
If you haven’t seen it yet, it starts off with a bunch of black dudes with “ghetto” names in a police line-up along with a goat named Felicia created by Tyler The Creator. A battered white woman walks in to try to identify her attacker. The goat begins to verbally threaten the woman with statements like “keep your mouth shut, I’m going to do ya when I get out,” “ya better not snitch on a playa’,” and “snitches, get stitches, fool.”
PepsiCo released a statement saying:
“We apologize for this video and take full responsibility. We have removed the video from all Mountain Dew channels and have been informed that Tyler is removing it from his channels as well.”
The video was one of a series of commercials directed by Tyler The Creator whose hip-hop music has been called “misogynistic” and “homophobic” although Tyler showed support for fellow entertainer Frank Ocean when he came out.
Take a look at Mountain Dew’s most racist commercial in history and let us know what you think.
