The Coca-Cola Company's Astoundingly Racist Store Display

Fuck me. I went shopping down at the Konsum in the mall, when I came across a promotional event for a new flavour of Fanta, Fanta World Pineapple: Inspired By Jamaica. I've worked as a store demonstrator myself and I know how ridiculous some of these stunts can be, but this is just beyond words. I'll let you spot all the offensive crap yourselves.


The music playing, of course, was generic astroturf-roots reggae.

Im from Jamaica and you wont see anybody here wearing floral patterned skirt/towel things, u mussi mad, unless u waan sumone fi deal wid yuh case and buss u head lol, im joking but in all seriousness promotional things like that just make the world have a warped view of what Jamaica is really like, that there is for the tourists and true Rata's wouldnt like people making a mockery of their religion.

drinking fanta is a good way to not shit for a week, or basically have your colon caked in mud.

Eff-ing hell! Is Coca Cola making it a policy to spread racism in every corner of the globe? They have a whole campaign here in Taiwan portraying Africans offensively and followed it up with an ad of a Taiwanese celebrity in blackface.

I think there are those who are taking this much more seriously than they have and not take things so literal
