Did anyone else see this Old Navy ad that’s been getting a ton of attention?
When I first saw it, it seemsed pretty basic to me. No one’s fly is open, no one’s middle finger is pointing up. But it’s causing quite the stir on social media.
Why? Because of the interracial couple and their beautiful child. Seriously? Yes, seriously. When I first read about this, it literally did not compute at first. How is this even an issue?
Now, if you’re reading this and you ARE offended by it and are now offended by me…uh…
I don’t care. Go home.
True, I am 1/2 of an interracial couple, so I’m probably a little more sensitive to it. But it still boggles my mind, nonetheless. Who are these people bothering?
This US Weekly article shares some of the horrible backlash Old Navy has been receiving for posting the ad above. I was shocked at some of the comments that were posted.
But there’s a lot of positive feedback too. (I’m glad that US Weekly choose to share more of the positive and less of the negative!)
And there’s also quite a few funny meme’s floating around too.
I won’t ever be able to change everyone’s views on this, but for now, this Asian who married a smoking hot white guy, will happily support (and continue to support) Old Navy. Not like I needed another excuse. 🙂
