The M&S Christmas advert is a complete shocker that, yet again, capitulates to the woke diversity mafia.
The word Christmas is changed to Thismas…obviously we couldn’t possibly dwell on it being a Christian festival to celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ and the whole point of it, as far as I can tell, is to pump out a message of complete and utter selfishness as opposed to love and generosity.
And that’s before we’ve got started on the pathetic, obligatory apology they’ve felt compelled to dish out to Pro-Palestine ‘I’m offended by everything’ brigade.
Here’s the advert…
As you can see there is the obligatory amount of racial diversity in there. Not really much of a nod to the nuclear family, the elderly or children.
Our very own Martin Daubney’s tweet summed up the views of many people who endured what Marks and Sparks served up there on a silver platter of wokery...
Early contender for Worst Christmas Ad of the Year from M&S?
Obligatory gay couple, No heterosexual couple in sight, The family is black, obvs (now mandatory in ad land), Set fire to Christmas cards, Who stole all the kids?
But things went from bad to worse for M&S because there was another online backlash. This time, because they’d offended Palestine supporters.
So one original bit of content shows Christmas hats being burnt in a fire. These flags happened to be Red, White and Green. This prompted a furious backlash from people saying they were, and I’m not joking now, burning the Palestinian flag.
Firstly, this advert was filmed in August, something that Tan France, a man who appears in the advert, who apparently stars in a show called The Queer Eye, pointed out.
Secondly, Palestine does not have a monopoly on those colours. No more than the Italians, Hungarians or the Welsh do.
But obviously M&S did what all pathetic companies do and completely capitulate. They issued a grovelling apology.
They said: ‘Today we shared an outtake image from our Christmas clothing and home advert which was recorded in August.
'It showed traditional, festive coloured red, green and silver Christmas paper party hats in a fire grate.
'While the intent was to playfully show that some people just don't enjoy wearing paper Christmas hats over the festive season, we have removed the post following feedback and we apologise for any unintentional hurt caused.'
As commentator and friend of GB News Chris Rose tweeted…
So let me get this straight, Palestine supporters will argue that genocide chants against Israel & \u201cJihad\u201d are harmless but green, white & red Christmas hats are definitely about Palestine.\n\nThis level of moronic gaslighting has made me even more pro Zionist.
This isn’t just pathetic, this is M&S pathetic.
This is just hard proof that even when you go massively out of your way to tick every possible box and do everything you can to keep the mob happy, you won’t. You’ll never win. It’s a bit too early to be saying this but I’ll say it anyway: Don’t have a merry Thismas, have a merry Christmas.
