It is incredibly silly for people to get offended by this ad, in my opinion. However, as a national brand, it's not really wise to choose an advertising scheme that could be considered controversial or offensive by some so you don't end up potentially losing some of your target demographic.
But I do hate the idea of people trying to put it in science class because they believe it carries the same scientific weight of say... evolution.
That's what annoys me, and I have a feeling you're mistaking what I hate, and thinking it means hatred of creationism itself.
I notice the chimps in the ad didn't have any Dr. Pepper. So I guess the apes posting in discontent on facebook have identified themselves clearly.
Oh - I love it!
I can't believe some people still don't understand the theory of evolution - and I'm sure they'd complain just as much if God was holding a 6-pack of it, too.

It might be a blow to DP. The South loves it's Dr. Pepper. Damn, mine is empty, brb...
Dude, the comments on Facebook for the ad are full of LULZ.
