This ad for a popular energy drink by the ad agency McCann has become the target of criticism over its use of sexist language and its sexist images of women.
A screenshot posted on Twitter by an user with the handle @_Kamalea_ posted a screenshot of the ad.
In the ad, a young woman is shown smiling, a man holds a cup of Coke and a man sits next to her.
The caption reads: “Coke is for men.
The ad was promoted on social media sites and appeared on multiple Coca-Cola advertising spots on Wednesday.
The ad, which has more than 200,000 likes on Instagram, was placed on a campaign that is sponsored by the advertising specialty institute, McCann PR.
The campaign featured a number of ads featuring women that appeared to be using their looks to sell the beverage.
A woman with a long-sleeve shirt and short-sleeved top is shown sitting next to a man, who is holding a drink.
A man in a long white coat is shown standing next to another man.
A man holding a Coke can is shown with a woman wearing a short skirt and a black top.
A boy holds a bag of food and drinks while his parents watch.
The hashtag #cocaCola, which refers to the popular energy beverage, has been trending on Twitter.
The image has been shared more than 7,000 times.
The McCann PR ad, titled “Coca Cola for men,” features a woman sitting next.
In a statement to The Hill, the company said that it is taking action to remove the ad and “continue to promote our brand to women, both in our advertising and social media.”
“We know that it can be difficult for women to navigate the modern world and that our advertising can sometimes be sexist or offensive,” the statement read.
“We want to ensure that our ads are relevant and inclusive of all people.”
The Hill has reached out to McCann for comment and will update this post if and when we hear back.
In its statement, McCann said that “anytime you see an ad that includes language that is sexist, demeaning, or otherwise offensive, you need to take action.
That includes taking the ad down immediately.””
That said, we know that our brand is resonating with women across the globe, and we will continue to promote the products and services that we sell,” the company added.
The Hill contacted the McCann PR office for comment.
