Volkswagen Super Bowl Commercial Being Called Racist. [VIDEO]
Volkswagen has released their Super Bowl commercial. They bought :60 seconds for 8 million dollars to show it during this Sunday’s Super Bowl, but after some backlash, some are saying that they might pull the ad before it even airs.
The editor at large of Mediapost.com told NBC’s Today Show that ‘It’s just saying, ”Black people are happy…Didn’t ANYONE look at this? This is SO racist!”
New York Times columnist Charles Bow was disgusted with the ad on his appearance on CNN. “I don’t like it all…It’s like blackface with voices. ”
Watch the ad here. What do you think? Is it racist? Should VW pull it before Sunday?
