Were you Offended by the Pepsi Max Super Bowl Ad Featuring the “Angry Black Woman?” Dr. Boyce’s Facebook page speaks up

Boyce Watkins

OK, was I the only person who noticed that Pepsi Max commercial with the black woman who beats the hell out of her husband the whole time and then hits the white woman in the head with a can of pepsi? The commercial ends with the black couple running away after knocking the white woman unconscious. Interesting…..

    • Boyce Watkins The Doritos ad was hilarious, but we should take some kind of note when an ad overuses stereotypes. This Pepsi ad was also funny, but whoa!

    I don’t think the commercial is a big deal, and Ive never acted like that so I do really care.

    The Pepsi commercial depicting a beautiful looking Black couple with the female being angry at her man initially for no reason, is a negative racial defamation that perpetuates division amongst all people in general and Black family in particular. The commercial’s general aim seems to stereo type Black Woman and leave negative impressions of the black women on mass media. Unfortunately this stereo type of angry woman has far too many people buying into the commercial made image. I will compare this with cigarette commercials. Many people smoke because the commercials make it seem cool and self-pleasing; in the long run it is not.

    You bet I was offended.

    Have already written to Pepsico–which has a department for “Responsible Marketing and Advertising,” whose mission statement is “PepsiCo recognizes that, as a multinational food and beverage company with global brands that touch millions of consumers every day, our communications carry a special responsibility.”

    Boy did they ever miss the mark.

    The commercial showed a sterotype form of Black culture that is often wrong. To show two people having a fight, be they male, female, or both of the same sexual group, is good and even comical but when they are of opposite races it is like playing with “fire.” Here, Pepsi Cola was irresponsible and ignorant.

    Too many Black women have found that not only must they compete against other women for the opportunity to have an intimate male partner but many have found that what gives some, or many, of the White females an advantage is their man’s desires to gain what is often known as “white meat,” “White surpremacy,” etc. It is bound to the notion of Black hate where many men, and women, hate Black reality, including their background, their nose, their lips, and often their natural hair. One song sang by some men tells us that they want a “real red head” not one who has to straighten her hair to make it straight. The first black Miss South Africa was attacked by statements against her natural curly hair. This is not joke it is genocide, the killing of a natural group of people. The educaitonal systems of this land and television commercials lead many Blacks to prefer a White toy doll and to want to replace what the Creator gave to our natural heads, curly hair that is beautiful.

    Pepsi is very disrespectful to it’s Black neighbors and must have a very small force of Black employees in it’s marketing team or those who are there are too afraid to upset the “old boy’s” team of promoting racist issues under the cover of a comical advertisement that should not hurt any one of you “boys” and “girls'” community. Think again.

    I hated the advertisement because it went too far and was too violent. The issues of the angry black woman and the issue of the desires for a woman who has naturally straight hair are not issues that should be faced in a comedy commercial for a sugary drink.

  5. Nancy Lawrence

    The ad is ignorant of what Black women and families are facing in the daily world. I as a white woman did not find the ad humorous. I find Pepsi lacking in awareness and knowledge and bold in their insensitivity.

    Dude,that commercial described FAR TOO MANY BLACK WOMEN TO A “T!!!”
