I know the Pepsi ad was bad but don't forget Nivea just one-upped them in the racist ad department. Saying "White is Purity" while trying to promote a deodorant in the Middle East in a highly polarized political climate is beyond shameful.

Yikes. But even when corporations do “social justice” ads correctly, I still side eye them coz they’re just making money off feminism or lgbt rights or immigrants or black people or other minorities. But it takes special talent to get it really wrong like Pepsi and Nivea did. I’m sure before the backlash, they were patting themselves in the back. I’m surprised no one told them whatever they were going for, they completely missed the mark.
