Celebrating Diversity: The 5 Best (And Most Touching!) Commercials Out There

Coca Cola America the Beautiful Super Bowl commercial
Tweets Attack Multilingual Coca Cola Commercial

But some felt the need to bash the commercial, taking to twitter to voice their outrage. The hashtags #SpeakAmerican, #BoycottCoke and #fuckcoke all started trending mere moments after the commercial aired.

Racism Alert: People are Not Okay With Latinos at the American Music Awards

Ay ay ay ay... sometimes, we're just so saddened by our fellow Americans' ignorance we can't help but shake our heads and wonder when times will change. Last night, Pitbull hosted the American Music Awards. While we could sit here and debate if he did a worthwhile job or not, it seems there were some that couldn't help but take to Twitter to voice their opinions on the hosting choice, NOT for how well he hosted–but for the fact that he is Latino.
