Sony Pulls "Racist" PSP Ads


Posted July 11, 2006 - By Stephen Johnson

According to California Assemblyman Leland Yee, Sony has decided to pull their controversial PSP ads from billboards in the Netherlands after protests from the NAACP, Yee and lots of internet wags.

The ads feature a white woman grabbing the face of a black woman in a threatening manner, and, according to Sony, were meant simply to contrast the colors of its PSPs.

According to a statement from Yee, Sony pulled the advertising campaign and apologized to anyone offended by it.  "I am pleased to see Sony taking responsibility for their racially-charged ad and appropriately pulling it from the marketplace," Yee said. "Sony did the right thing by recognizing their insensitive mistake and apologizing for offending many of their customers."

Chalk one up to racial sensitivity...I think.
