Here's the Coca-Cola ad that sparked a furious backlash

Some social media users employed racial slurs in reaction. But one anchorwoman had the perfect response to them…

COCA-COLA LAUNCHED a high-profile new ad at the Super Bowl this weekend. It featured families from different cultures singing much-loved patriotic song America The Beautiful in different languages. With lashings of Coke, obviously. (Warning: if you’re in a sensitive state, it may give you feelings.)

However, there was an immediate negative response from some social media users, angry at the use of other languages..

Some even used racial slurs, as in this now-deleted tweet. (Also, America The Beautiful isn’t the national anthem.)
