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.

Despite it moving through the global community, featuring scenes from The Great Wall of China, deserts of the Middle East and more, a certain segment of social media users had felt the inclusion of a Muslim woman was insulting and ‘un-American’.

However, not all responses were negative.

What are your thoughts about the television advertisement? Is it all blown out of proportion?
