A new ad from Kentucky Fried Chicken that was shown ins Australia has many people seeing red.

Dubbed “How To Silence A Noisy Crowd,” the commercial serves as but one in a series of promotional vignettes. The footage features a lone, white Australian man attempting to enjoy a cricket match while sitting in the midst of a seemingly opposing crowd made up of nothing but chocolate hued fans, purportedly meant to represent West Indians.

When the crowd notices the poor chap, he utters, “Need a tip when you’re stuck in a situation?,” after which he pulls out a sizeable bucket of the Colonel’s fried chicken to quell the matter before the situation presumably degenerates into something worse.

Do you feel that the video crosses the line and is racist or are people just feining anger to get attention?
