First the Oscars keep it white, then Stacey Dash wants to abolish Black History Month and now Lil Wayne Sells Out With Slavery Ad for Superbowl!!!
CelebNMusic247.com has the tea on the new Lil Wayne Super Bowl commercial that was meant to be funny, but our American history with Slavery says otherwise…
Do you think Lil Wayne Sells Out With Slavery Ad?
First off, this commercial mocks the hit series The Jeffersons, and then uses one of histories most notorious President who was a part of the slave movement.
In the video, you see Lil Wayne and co-star George Washington in a Super Bowl commercial this year, but some people are taking issue.
Wayne is seen cooking for George, the President, who famously owned slaves. The ad is for Apartments.com and also features Jeff Goldblum and a gospel choir singing ‘Jeffersons’ theme “Moving On Up.”
It just comes off like another white writer was trying to be funny using a 70s pop culture iconic couple “George and Weezy” being all chummy while getting ready to watch the Super Bowl at a roof top BBQ.
Instead it just leaves a bad taste in our mouth.
The ad is low-key racist due to Washington’s history as a slaver, but Wayne’s camp doesn’t see it that way … at all. A source very close to him says the commercial is “meant to be funny and silly and not the least bit offensive.”
