Honestly. I’d like to see who is upset. A quick search shows a bunch of articles saying “controversial” but never say who was getting upset or where said controversy took place. I can’t even find any trace of these racist comments that everyone is upset about. The most I can tell is there were some mean comments on the youtube video which, it’s youtube people… there are going to be trolls and morons, don’t be ignorant about that fact.
But even the dislike bar is only 2k vs. the like bar which staggers with 57k (almost 28 times more likes), this ratio is not uncommon (and the dislikes might not have had anything to do with racism, but they just don’t like cheerios, or didn’t like the ads script.)
St. Louis Post puts it best in saying the reaction to the reaction was over-the-top
This just seems like [yet] another strawman for people to get mad at. And, my misanthropic brain tells me that, naturally, the Fine Bro.s decided to cash in this ‘controversy’.
Edit: Yes, I’m going to ruin the whole message of your thread with my cynicism :P
