Mountain Dew Racist TV Commercial 2013 Pulled

The controversial Mountain Dew commercial shows a badly beaten blonde Caucasian woman approaching the line-up on crutches. A white male warden says, "We got 'em all lined up, nail the little sucker." The goat, in a raspy male voice bullies her with phrases, "keep your mouth shut, I'm going to do ya when I get out," "ya better not snitch on a playa'," and "snitches, get stitches, fool."

The woman becomes hysterical and runs from the room. As the ad ends, you can hear her screaming off-screen.

This ad has been pulled from TV and Youtube because of consumer complaints. Many people see the stereotyping in the police line-up. Others see a threat from the black to community to the white community, to not snitch on their crimes.

  1. The Mountain Dew commercial is actually a threat to certain people who are thinking about reporting crimes. So, it is offensive on many levels.
