Pepsi Pulls ‘Racist’ Mountain Dew Ad (VIDEO)

Pepsi-Cola is getting a lot of heat for a commercial for Mountain Dew which some say perpetuates racial stereotypes and trivializes violence against women.

The ad, developed by rapper Tyler the Creator, features a battered woman on crutches attempting to pick out a suspect in a police lineup of black men.

A goat named Felicia is also in the lineup and is heard making threatening comments to the woman, including “Keep ya mouth shut”.

The woman then screams “I can’t do this, no, no, no,” and runs from the room.

Pepsi pulled the ad after receiving complaints from viewers who found it offensive. The soft-drink company later issued a statement saying, “We apologize for this video and take full responsibility. We have removed it from all Mountain Dew channels and Tyler is removing it from his channels as well.”

Watch the video and tell us what you think.
