Super Bowl Ad Sparks Outrage

Super Bowl Ad Sparks Outrage


Airdate: 01/30/2013

Controversy is brewing over a Volkswagen Super Bowl ad, which some critics are calling racist.

The ad features a white office worker who gets his colleagues to unwind by using an easy-going Jamaican accent.

One commentator on the Today show said, "I was shocked. This is racist,"

But on Wednesday's The View, Whoopi Goldberg disagreed.

"One critic is calling it "black face with voices." I take offense to that because saying that means that you don't realize that there are white folks who grew up in the Caribbean as well," said Goldberg.
