The NFL commish finally spoke today to address the league's poor handling of each scandal, saying:

So as it turns out, the biggest losers of last night’s Super Bowl wasn’t the Denver Broncos, despite getting blown out 35 points by the Seattle Seahawks.
Nope, the real losers showed themselves on Twitter after the airing of a Coca-Cola commercial!
The Coke spot was simple enough: a wide-range of people singing America the Beautiful in various languages.
Get it? Because America is a rich, diverse nation that is bonded together due to our shared love of
soda this great country!
Too bad our great country also includes a handful of some seriously racist individuals, who were outraged by the Coke commercial and its beautiful message!
"Coke having a commercial with an American song in other languages… not cool. Coke. GTFO with that.”
"Nice to see that coke likes to sing an AMERICAN song in the terrorist's language. Way to go coke. You can leave America.”
"Dear Coke commercial…. DO NOT sing my Country's song of Freedom in a different language. ????”
"Can't believe Coke just committed corporate suicide during the Super Bowl.”
"Dear Coke, Your commercial is a slap to the faces of my Italian and Finnish ancestors who came here & learned English. #AmericaIsBeautiful"
"Still confused as to why they were singing about America in all those foreign languages in the Coke commercial. We speak English…”
Bluuuuuugh! A million eye rolls!
There are so many things to say to ignorant people like this. Like how the US has no official language or how almost every American has ancestors who immigrated here. Or that Coke is a billion-dollar company and is allowed to do whatever the hellz they want in their commercials!
But we’re not going to even waste our breaths. So not worth it.
We didn’t really feel anything the first time we saw this Coke ad. But now that it’s sparked so much outrage, not only do we LOVE it, it makes us proud!
Ch-ch-check out the full Coke commercial above!
