    This ad was shown at the Super Bowl and sparked a racist row as Twitter went into meltdown.  What is wrong with people, why should race come into it????

    >>>Shockingly, a lot of people were angry that patriotic America the Beautiful was being sung in languages other than English.

    But some racist attitudes expressed online also sparked a backlash, with many others embracing the positive portrayal of diversity.

    According to Coca-Cola, a longer version of the advert will now air during the opening ceremonies of the 2014 Winter Games.<<<

    Neither can I LR, all those people whatever their nationality are proud to be American.  Some people are just never satisfied.  If 'non-English' speakers were putting down America they say it is racist, when they praise it with a patriotic song, it is still racist  Controversial Coca Cola Ad 1498946960 Can´t win!

    You should bear in mind though that the average "Twitter" user isn't the sharpest knife in the drawer.

    Plus, the more exposure that Coca Cola gets (good or seemingly bad) the more they like it.

    Reminds me a bit of M. OLeary at RyanAir.  Controversial Coca Cola Ad 3025408739
