CNN is stirring controversy by releasing an advert called ‘#FactsFirst’ that deliberately seeks to alienate, which is being described as bigotry of the worst kind.
“This heartless advertising stunt totally excludes people who want to exclude people.”
The ad appears to show disdain for the segment of the population that has a specific brain injury that causes them to perceive an apple as a banana, or a copy of a Renoir as the original that’s being hanging in the Art Institute of Chicago for 80+ years.
“What if someone is unconscious and cannot see, smell, nor feel the fruit, or depends on blatant falsehoods to sow racial division and ferment hatred?”
Additionally, there was no consideration of those who see neither an apple nor a banana, but an ‘alternative orange’.
“Haven’t these poor alt-facters suffered enough at Bowling Green and while on holiday in Sweden?”
The network was also criticized for its gross insensitivity towards elderly people whose ‘Caps Lock’ key on their desktop keyboard is stuck.
