Tyler The Creator's Ad Campaign For Mountain Dew Is Stirring Up Some Serious Controversy!

Filed under: Icky Icky PooYouTube

At this point, Tyler the Creator's name has essentially become synonymous with controversy.

The foul-mouthed rapper and his buddies from Odd Future have teamed up to put together an ad campaign for Mountain Dew, and the commercials are already being deemed both racist and sexist.

For some reason, we're not surprised considering both of those subjects seem to be common themes in his music.

The ads come in three parts, the first of which shows a goat beating on a female waitress after a Mountain Dew-enduced frenzy. But the clip that's drawing all of the criticism is the bizarre conclusion which shows the bruised and battered woman attempting to pick the culprit out of a police line-up.

Gatorade Removes Flame Retardant Ingredient After 15-Year-Old's Petition

Okay, so if you're somewhat confused, we understand. We're just learning this too.

Gatorade apparently has an ingredient, brominated vegetable oil (BVO), that can be used as a flame retardant!

When in Gatorade, BVO actually keeps certain flavors mixed in, or else the flavoring ingredient would float to the surface of the drink.

Sarah Kavanaugh, 15, realized people probably shouldn't be drinking BVO, so she started a petition on Change.org.

And PepsiCo, owner of Gatorade, listened! They're replacing the ingredient! That was easy!

Subway could take a page out of Pepsi's book! LOLz!

It's so amazing that they reacted so quickly to the online petition. They just saved themselves a lot of consumer grief.

Way to go, Sarah!

The petite actress was all smiles in a Zimmermann top, white blazer and matching shorts by Kymerah and tan Brian Atwood sandals as she posed against chip dispensers in the store.

Potato chips have never looked so sexily delicious!
