Social Media users have criticized a new Heineken Ad that suggests racist undertones. Heineken is brewed, marketed and sold in Nigeria by Nigeria Breweries Plc.
In the ad (see below) a bartender can be seen sliding a Heineken beer to a white lady who is hanging out with a bunch of white men.
As the beer slides towards her, it passed through some black people including ladies and men ending with a caption “Lighter is better”.
The ad immediately drew criticism from Chance The Rapper
Others also showed their annoyance.
What do you think? Is it racist?
