A new Coke ad is being called racist and has fans upset. On Jan. 31, NBC News reported that fans are upset about this new ad that is for the 2013 Super Bowl XLVII.
The American-Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee is in an uproar and wants this ad to be either changed or taken down completely. They do not think it should air at all the way that it is right now. An Arab man is walking along in this commercial and everyone passes him by including Vegas showgirls. He has his camel by his side, but he is walking with him and they aren't moving very fast at all.
The main problem is that this ad allows users to vote and see who they think will win the race. The Arab person is not an option to win. For some reason, Coke doesn't let you pick them and they are not okay with this choice.
You can check out the commercial in this video. Do you think it is racist that the Arab isn't even allowed to win? Sound off in the comments.
