    Nigeria Demands Apology For Sony Ad Implying They're A Source Of Scams

    Nigeria demanding an apology because someone calls them out on the old Nigerian scam? Give me a freaking break.

    The best comment I saw on this was on Reddit, where I found the link to the story:

    I have been laughing pretty hard for 5 minutes now, and I can't stop.

    Ha, I love the commercial this is from.

    Though they've changed it due to these complaints, going from the Nigerian comment to "You can't believe everything you read on the internet. That's how WWI started"

    They'll claim our lack of apology is racist.

    Very funny all around. Funny comment, funny ad, and funny how insecure the Nigerians are to demand an apology...

    Thanks for the laugh.

    Wait, they are demanding another apology from Sony?

    They are already banning District 9 in Nigeria for its depiction of Nigerians.

    Information Minister Dora Akunyili has asked movie houses in the capital of Abuja to stop screening "District 9" because the South Africa-based sci-fi movie about aliens and discrimination makes Nigerians look bad.

    "We have directed that they should stop public screening of the film," she said. "We are not happy about it because it portrays Nigeria in bad light."

    Perhaps they should be demanding an apology from the spammers that are destroying their image by clog our emails with their scams.

    All that railing ion Sony is doing is underscoring and drawing attention to their negative image.. smooth move.
