Here's the Nokia advert that's making people angry on Twitter

IF YOU SPEND a lot of time watching telly, you may have seen the new ad for the Nokia Lumia 630.

Launched six weeks ago, it features a young woman who is totally baffled by the phone’s technical features. But she knows that it takes lovely photos!

Many viewers have been irritated by what they see as the ad’s stereotypical portrayal of a young woman.

There’s even a dedicated Twitter account set up to campaign against the commercial.

In fact, the character in the ad has become quite the hate figure on Twitter.

Sorry, Nokia girl.
