They still have no souls

Petty ginger whingers have had their complaint about an ad for ginger beer upheld. Apparently it is offensive to mock soul-less ginger people:

An advertisement that invited parents to trade in their unwanted red-headed children for ginger beer has been ruled discriminatory and offensive.

The posters for Hakanoa ginger beer showed a mother abandoning her red-headed child at a dairy in exchange for a six-pack of ginger beer, with the headline: “Swap your ginger for six.”

The ad said “no one really wants a ginger” and encouraged people to trade them for “something you really want, a delicious six pack of Hakanoa Ginger Beer”.

The campaign ran for a week from late July before it was pulled following a flurry of complaints.

The Advertising Standards Authority (ASA) has now ruled the ad was likely to cause serious and widespread offence.

What rubbish, gingers are a tiny proportion of the population, universally loathed and avoided…there is no way there would be widespread offence.

Anyway they have no souls so I can’t see how they could be offended.
