Jackson Lee Denounces Pepsi Super Bowl Ad as "Demeaning"!

Rush Limbaugh: "I finally watched some of the commercials, and I saw the Pepsi Max commercial, you know which one I'm talking about. "A black woman sitting on a park bench gets angry with her husband after an attractive, white female jogger sits down next to the couple and smiles and waves at the man. But guess what's happened here with this Pepsi commercial? Sheila Jackson Lee is blasting it as a demeaning Super Bowl ad.
  "Sheila Jackson Lee (D-Texas) said it was ridiculous for the soft drink maker to air the advertisement during African-American history month. 'In this month of African-American history where we're trying to celebrate what is good and great, it certainly seems ridiculous that Pepsi would utilize this kind of humor,' she said. 'It was not humorous. It was demeaning -- an African-American woman throwing something at an African-American male and winding up hitting a Caucasian woman.' Jackson Lee said she has a sense of humor and believes in the First Amendment. She also said the Super Bowl is a great time for 'fellowship' with family members." That's why she's so disappointed with the Pepsi ad."
Here's the ad:

Super Bowl Pepsi Max Commercial Showing Woman Abusing Man
The issue is not race. This commercial was highly offensive to the male victims of domestic violence who find themselves unable to find help as people think it is funny. Seventeen years ago, the Super Bowl also played another controversial commercial, based on report that never existed, yet was reported as fact by the national news, that more domestic violence against women took place on Super Bowl Night than any other night of the year. Men are the victims of domestic violence in at least 39% of the cases, yet shelters are designed to only help women. Consider the uproar this would have generated had had the gender roles been reversed. Note that the creator of the as lives near me.
