Super Bowl Ads Offend, Well, Everyone

Super Bowl ads featuring pandas with Chinese accents, Richard Simmons, Naomi Campbell dancing with lizards (with grillz!), foreign dudes in a bar, sexy girls in lingerie, a rapping white guy, offended viewers, bloggers, and those who just like to be offended.

The panda ads were written by Vinod Gupta who’s a big pal of the Clintons, so how could anyone be offended? Even Tyler Durden’s ilk were dismayed.

Richard Simmons facing off a car equipped with Bridgestone tires was considered homophobic by AfterElton, but GayWheels thought it was cute. Those gays, so flighty.

Naomi Campbell’s lizard dance partner for LifeWater drew criticism for her face as well as stereotyping.

And some people liked everything.

Others, of course, hated everything.
