Controversial Commercial

Apparently, Cheerios has crossed the line with their most recent commercial.

Can you spot what the issue is?

I'm guessing this is either a black and white issue, or an ocd issue.

They had to disable the comments section on the video because of all the hateful racist comments.

Just that commercial?

Or all the online videos on the internet?

I don't see it as controversial.

When I saw that commercial, I thought a black man broke into a white woman's house and took a nap after eating their food.

The only offensive thing about that advert is the deliberate pandering to the 'we're not racist!' agenda currently running through the media. It's patronising and pathetic.

That said, it's also terribly sad that it stands out so much that this is a black guy and a white woman. These relationships exist, so why does it come across as so false in advertising?

Or is it controversial because she wasted the food?

So they didn't use a latina or oriental chick first. I guess the only place for interracial stuff is in porn.

Ignoring all the comments underneath (which are just monotonous and add nothing to the article) this article makes a good point, and is probably one of many currently circulating the web:
