    see i dont really see that either (misogynist) only because the make-up and acting was so over the top and obnoxious, the make up, her shrill (ahhhh, ahhhhh, nooooo), the crutches and neck brace all way to over the top for me to ever think any part of this is to be serious. I see better make-up on 12yr olds for halloween zombies. lol

    The green tie on the green shirt to help catch the DEW color in the dark etc. LL

    I did not find it particularly racist. I think it makes light of gang culture and domestic violence and dysfunction common to urban decay, and so was in bad taste. It probably deserves the outrage it's getting, but not on racial grounds per se.

    Seems like some people can't resist the urge to automatically label something racist if it 1) offends them and 2) involves someone of a non-white race.

    Oh well im glad when people just agree too, i have no idea what the people against this commercial were thinking though. If i was mtdew/pepsi co. I just get the Group/writer to make a statement tell people to lighten the hell up. lol
    Im guessing had the add just been offered for consideration there would have been a much different response. As it is, the background information sort of steers the train for some folk. White ad company...RACIST. Black ad company...brilliant. Just an opinion.

    It makes women look like punching bags that should not be taken seriously. It makes the issue of a woman being beaten comical.

    I can't believe I have to explain this. Have we become that desensitized?
    No men are anywhere, and Im allowed to go in, because Im the owner of the pageant and therefore Im inspecting it, Trump said... Is everyone OK? You know, theyre standing there with no clothes. Is everybody OK? And you see these incredible looking women, and so I sort of get away with things like that.

    But I did read the script. I got a laugh and now I think I'll go out and buy a Mountain Dew.

    This is just another example of a white beard scratching liberal telling the black community that they are to stupid to know that they are being stereotyped and made fun of by those right wing racist.

    So what I'm going to do right now is go to You Tube and watch the Frito Bandito commercial and then head to the local market and buy a can of Mountain Dew and a bag of Fritos.

    BTW: When I see a goat I think of Arab Muslims.

    that was a stupid commercial. Good grief, that woman shrieking?

    Also, the guy who said it was the most racist commercial ever because all the people in a lineup were black -- this confuses me. When you have a police lineup, of COURSE the people in the lineup have to look similar. They are not going to have a black guy, a Chinese guy, 2 Arabic men and a fat white girl. If the suspect was a black man, they are going to have 5 black men. Sheesh.

    What amounts for racism these days. Kind of silly.
