How are they stereotyping? Does that mean any gay English character in one of our soaps means they are stereotyping us all as gay!?

Jesus Christ! The Zulu actually come across as distinctly more sensible and human than the upper-class priggish toffs with their humourless, stiff rectitude. Saying that 'Mbongoland' is a somewhat questionable place to set the tale and the race relations people would have a field day now. I laughed in parts however...

I might get shot down here, but I dont really see anything wrong with that ad to be honest.  Apart from the advertising of ciggies of course. Feckin PC brigade getting far too precious about absolutely feck all.

Anybody would think that everyone in Africa now walks round with designer clobber on texting their mates on their iphone 4's the way these dickheads are going on. ::)

 I cant believe they're making such a fuss and putting a homosexual slant on Pepe marrying the tribal chieftan either. It really is beyond pathetic.

http://www.guardian.co.uk/football/2012/feb/29/pepe-reina-race-row-tv-advert?CMP=twt_gu

Another Liverpool player was at the centre of a race row on Wednesday after a Spanish advert featuring the goalkeeper Pepé Reina was pulled after a complaint about its depiction of racial and sexual stereotypes.

The video, an ad for the multinational insurance firm Groupama, was withdrawn from Spanish television following a complaint from One Black Vote, a non-political campaigning group. Liverpool have been widely criticised for their handling of the Luis Suárez affair this season, which resulted in the forward receiving an eight‑match ban for racial abuse of the Manchester United defender Patrice Evra.

The ad depicts Reina meeting a tribe in a jungle scene with the Liverpool player – whose name translates as queen in Spanish – attracting the attentions of the leader.

Simon Woolley, the OBV director, said: "I'm shocked on so many levels. Firstly, how would the Spanish feel if the English stereotyped Spanish people as backward, stupid, and animalistic homosexuals? Secondly, what does this say about Pepé Reina? The Liverpool goalkeeper has lived and worked in the UK for nearly a decade, does he think it's OK to characterise black people this way? Does he think his black team‑mates will laugh at his joke?"

After taking the advert off national television in Spain, Groupama said: "Groupama Seguros does not consider that this advert contains either offensive nor any discriminatory content."

Liverpool have thus far declined to comment.

Astonishing really. But not surprising.

Apperently Reina is the one to have caused offence.
Nothing to do with the Directors or Producers or Writers of the Avderts scritpts of course. Nope.
Pepe Reina alone is at fault.

Maybe this says more about homophobia in the active black community?

Maybe it says that if you're constantly claiming to victimised, you don't actually feel equal?

Maybe it's a fucking throw away advert and you should shut the fuck up, or go play in traffic, you melodramatic tit.

I'm waiting for the Italian community to rise up against those horrible Go Compare adverts. Or better yet, the Slimy c*nt community have a go over those endless PPI adverts.

As an actor I find this deeply offensive. Liverpool, fresh off insulting black people out of the work, are now trying to force us trained actors out of work. I don't go to your job and start keeping goal, Pepe.

I'm now looking for the youtube clip of the South Park episode where Kyle's mom organises one of her protests, forcing a Comedy Central spokesman to make a comment.

Spokesman comes out of the building, says 'On behalf of Comedy Central I'm going to read the following statement' and then clears his throat, then says:

'Go Fuck Yourself. Thank You'

That should be Pepe's statement.

Couple of questions

Who are OBV and who do they represent?
Why are they looking to get advertisements in a foreign country taken down?
On whose authority are they acting, in this capacity?
Has the advert actually been pulled (as OBV claims) and if so, why?
What has all this got to with Liverpool?

I predict a backlash from Spain and the Spanish media.
