In this string of tweets referring to the ad, Unilever claims they had nothing to do with the ad. Unilever is the parent company of Flora margarine and they had no idea about the ad? I know Unilever has a million companies under its umbrella, but do you mean to tell me that their subsidiaries can run whatever advertising they'd like without approval? Advertising as risky as this? Not a good idea, Unilever.
"The advert was not approved by anyone @Unilever. The advert is offensive & unacceptable. We have put an immediate stop to it"
All of this comes on the heels of homosexuals being likened to "12-year-olds" by Pennsylvania state lawyers. Pennsylvania is my home state, and I was as shocked about this as I was about the bullet ad:
"Had the Clerk issued marriage licenses to twelve-year-olds in violation of state law, would anyone seriously contend that each twelve-year-old has a legally enforceable "interest" in his "license" and is entitled to a hearing on the validity of his 'license,' else his due process rights be violated?"
