[VIDEO] ‘Controversial’ Coke Ad Preserved by Latino Rebels: Coca-Cola Apologizes For Ad Showing White People Doing Something NicePosted: December 12, 2015 | |

Coca-Cola issued a rare apology and was forced to pull an online advert which was deemed offensive to Mexico’s indigenous people by consumers, media and advocacy groups in the country.
The ad shows fair-skinned, attractive, young people turning up at an indigenous town bearing gifts of sugary fizzy drinks and a Christmas tree for the overawed locals.
