2733

South Africans online weren’t all that impressed with insurance company Outsurance’s Father’s Day campaign, as the company had released an advertisement featuring just one black father, out of 20 men in total.

Shortly after releasing the video, Outsurance pulled it from the air and issued an apology for failing to spot that the campaign had not taken South Africa’s demographics into consideration… alas, the damage was done and, while the video might be gone, the internet never forgets.
