I’ve asked on Twitter but no one provided an answer: why are advertisers in the UK so utterly terrified now of featuring a white couple?? WHY????? It’s the fucking UK.
Now I know why they pretty much ONLY now feature a mixed race couple, but sorry, I’ve been on this earth nearly 50 years now, and I know 1 mixed race couple. ONE. 1….mixed…race…couple. You look at the adverts now, you’d think every other fucking couple is mixed race!! I thought adverts were supposed to “reflect society better” these days. So why whenever I’m out and about do I see maybe 1 mixed race couple, sometimes. As opposed to, you know, every couple in Tesco, for example, being a mixed race couple. THEY’RE JUST NOT!!!
Sorry, advertisers, you’ve been REALLY badly misled by somebody with an agenda.
