    A divorce doesn't make a broken home. Broken people make broken homes.

    It is because certain people chose to view an advert though their own twisted lens of society.

    I know you are trolling but that's a crappy thing to say.

    I can play this game all day, there are near infinite amount of combinations you can do this with and still make the same SJW arguments.
    Let's focus on the ad that is actually there, my point is not about identity politics, it's about advertising - specifically that this was poor advertising.

    Probably doesn't matter, but in the coloured community that is a massive problem. I was just saying, didn't take offense. For me that's on the same level as making a joke about white farm murders, just a crappy thing to say.

    It is 100% to do with identity politics.

    Non racist people would have just seen a father figure in the advert.
