Mountain Dew Pulls Tyler, the Creator Ad

PepsiCo has apologized for a Tyler, the Creator–developed ad in which "a battered white woman on crutches is urged by an officer to identify a suspect out of a lineup of black men" and Tyler's Felicia the Goat character. More than a few people found the ad to be racist, and it was pulled in response to the criticism. Tyler has yet to comment (even on Twitter).
