Coca-Cola On Blast For Super Bowl Commerical

Coca-Cola, known for its usually heart-warming ads, was put on blast for its “It’s Beautiful” Super Bowl commercial. The ad depicts people across several ethnicities and races singing “America the Beautiful” in different languages. It also was the first commercial to feature gay parents. The ad spawned several homophobic and racist tweets and commentary on social media. For Coke, any press is good press. Says the company, “We are simply showing America is beautiful and that Coke is for everyone.”
