Chance The Rapper blasts Heineken ad

Chance The Rapper has blasted beer company Heineken for being racist after airing a Heineken lite advert.

Speaking to Bongani Bingwa, Jonathan Fairbairn says the advert starts off with a barman who picks up a pair of binoculars and looks across the bar an sees a woman who is looking very sad while looking at her glass of white wine. He says the barman then cracks open a Heineken and slides it across the counter.

On its way to her, it passes a black guy who is playing the guitar, it passes a black model who is basically walking and another black lady who is wanting to order a drink. Then it gets to a light skin lady and then the ad says: "Sometimes lite is better."

Fairbairn also spoke about other things that have gone viral including a toddler looking for milk in the wrong places.
