The ad for SnoreStop sleep aids is meant to emphasize how the product can save couples. Between the hashtag #betogether and the slogan “Keeping you together” is a soldier embracing the woman, who’s wearing a wedding ring.
Seizing peoples’ attention on Sunset Boulevard in Los Angeles is no easy feat. But a billboard depicting a U.S. soldier and a Muslim woman has managed to do just that.
Here are some reactions around the internet
Just my opinion, and I do not care what anybody says…… This ad is Un-American! Displaying an ad showing another culture’s symbol of how they view women and attempt to give the impression that it is “cool” is totally Un-American!
This is not a good ad. The woman is wearing a niqab, as prescribed by oppressive Islam radicalism. Snorestop should do their research on cultures and religion before introducing it as an ad. This ad signifies oppression to me; as a woman I find it offensive.
I served for 20 years in the US Armed Forces. I served with Servicemembers of all faiths, including Muslims. I’ve had Muslim supervisors and subordinates. They were all patriotic Americans. Those posters making racist comments, those posters making ignorant comments about Islam and Muslims, are showing one thing and one thing only: their own prejudice.Were you dropped on your head as a child or did you eat paint chips? Those are the only two logical reasons I can think of for that hilariously ignorant comment. I’d say question, but you obviously don’t know what proper punctuation is.
