From the Coca-Cola Facebook page… This is likely the best worst response of the hundreds I sifted through, and as such, deserved its own post. You have racist hysteria punctuated with lots of ALL CAPS and exclamation points. There’s American exceptionalism proudly on display, as she insists translating “America the Beautiful” into other languages means we will “BOW DOWN” before them.
Yes, Georgia Ellis is real. She would like you to know that “we here in America speak America”. Why? Because the “supper bowl” is an “AMERICA GAME.” Now I’m just picturing KFC selling football-themed famous bowls and labeling them “supper bowls”.
My second favorite posts would be the people who either don’t know “America the Beautiful” is NOT the national anthem, or the folks insisting they’re switching to Sprite or another Coca-Cola owned brand because they don’t care to look up what Coca-Cola actually distributes. How can you be bothered to do that when it’s just so much easier to fly off half-cocked?
In case you missed why the xenophobes are melting down tonight, here’s the ad that sparked a racist rage fest on Coca-Cola’s Facebook page. This links directly to the post on Facebook. Be warned: Racist, xenophobic, misogynistic, classist, homophobic bile most vile abounds.
So do massive trolling opportunities if you’re feeling puckish.
I’m looking at you, hawkamania.
You know Chik-Fil-A only serves Coke products, right?
OH NOES DECISION DILEMMA!
And now for something completely different: I present to you the best response to the impotent white rage on Coca-Cola’s Facebook page.
Here’s what I’m talking about:
Look at all these angry white people… I ventured over to Coca-Cola’s Facebook page and holy shit, y’all. These posts were captured in the five minutes after the ad ran. (4/4)

I ventured over to Coca-Cola’s Facebook page and holy shit, y’all — there’s a lot of madfaced white people on there. These next four posts were all captured in the five minutes after the ad ran. (1/4)
Hear that sound? That’s the sound of thousands of wing-nuts’ heads exploding on #tcot as they watched that Coke commercial and listened to individual lines from “America, the Beautiful” sung in NOT ENGLISH. DEAR GOD WHO WILL THINK OF THE CHILDREN?!
I think whoever’s tweeting for JCPenney forgot to take their mittens off.
With this, plus the puppy and kitten bowls, I may not watch any actual football.
As a coach of young athletes, I know how much the pro stars serve as role models, for good or ill. These players don’t have to be saints, but allegations of sexual assault obviously cross the line into an area that can’t be just swept under the rug.
The line that stuck in my craw, written by a sportswriter before the game, was that Roethlisberger might have been able to find redemption with a Super Bowl victory. Really? Win a football game and you are redeemed from reported actions of sexual assault?
Rev. Jim Wallis throws down some truth.
