The numbers are in and the big question is finally answered... Well, kind of!
Was The Interview a success?
So, how much, exactly, did it make for Sony?
Humor, of course, is relative…
But when you have an actor paint his face brown and put on a stereotypical 'Indian' accent to promote a product, it's no surprise some may get offended.
One such character is Raj, a 'bollywood producer' dressed in traditional indian garb who talks about giving the Kardashians his 'bone' and randomly mentions he was once in a milking contest…
"We received a lot feedback about the dating campaign parody we launched today and appreciate everyone who took the time to share their point of view. Our team worked hard to create a light-hearted parody featuring a variety of characters that was meant to provide a few laughs. We did not intend to offend anyone. I take full responsibility and apologize to anyone we offended."
The ad featuring Raj has since been removed… but if you think about it, the controversy is a great marketing scheme. It sure gets people talking about the product!
