It’s Super Bowl time, which means bring on the expensive, over-the-top commercials we love to watch inbetween plays. We’ve already seen Drake remix his “Hotline Bling” to incorporate T-Mobile’s latest cellphone promo and Rihanna slay alongside Colbert and now Jeff Goldblum is backed by an all-Black choir in an ad for Apartments.com.
While some see the commercial as funny and lighthearted, the 30 second clip is under fire from people who think it’s racist.
Goldblum ascends a high-rise building while singing the iconic “Jefferson’s” theme song “Moving On Up.” George (as in George Washington) and Weezy (as in Lil Wayne) make an appearance towards the end of the controversial spot.
We’re guessing folks are upset a White man is singing a song that represents Black struggle.
Hmm. We’re not really feeling offended by this one? How about you?
