What’s Wrong With This Advertisement? It Has A Muslim Woman In It.

Jeep recently aired a 1:31 minute advertisement at the Superbowl in the United States. Moments after it aired, certain social media users expressed outrage at the advertisement, calling it offensive for the two seconds it featured a Muslim woman.
