10587: Facebook Chair Spot Is Stool.

At Business Insider, Jim Edwards presented a racial rant over the new Facebook commercial from Wieden + Kennedy that plays off chairs. Edwards noted all the Black people are sitting on shittier seats than the White folks—and minorities are depicted less favorably than Caucasians throughout the spot. Of course, the comments left for the post include the standard selection of complaints about political correctness and oversensitivity. By golly, Edwards’ detractors are right. How dare the trade journalist question the cultural competence of ADCOLOR® Award Winner Dan Wieden? Now that’s fucked up!
