Mountain Dew Pulls ‘Racist’ Tyler, The Creator Ad: ‘We Apologize’

After Mountain Dew faced some controversy surrounding spokesperson Lil Wayne, the PepsiCo company has pulled a commercial starring their latest rapper hypeman Tyler, The Creator.

The beverage brand is known for their edgy ad campaigns designed to capture the attention of a young market, may have went too far with their Tyler-helmed spots. The clips were singled out by viewers who claimed it had racist overtones and displayed an insensitivity to violence against women.

The storyline begins with Part 1 where a peculiar goat, voiced by Tyler, abuses a waitress who offers him a Mountain Dew. When he finally drinks the entire bottle, he continues to batter her while demanding more. In the second spot, the goat is pulled over while speeding in a car, presumably drunk off of too many Dews.
