Chance The Rapper hits out at “terribly racist” Heineken advert
 Add to favorites

Chance The Rapper has accused Heineken of racism over a new beer advert.

The Heineken Light ad sees a bartender sliding a beer bottle past three black people before it reaches its intended recipient. The tagline reads: “Sometimes, lighter is better”.

Chance has since taken to Twitter to accuse companies of “purposely putting out noticeably racist ads so they can get more views”.

“That shit racist/bogus so I guess I shouldn’t help by posting about it,” he added, before describing the Heineken beer ad as “terribly racist”.

“Im not saying [boycott] them or go off,” Chance continued. “I’m just noticing how often it happens and I think they baiting consumers and tweeters”.

I think some companies are purposely putting out noticably racist ads so they can get more views. And that shit racist/bogus so I guess I shouldn’t help by posting about it. But ???? I gotta just say tho. The “sometimes lighter is better” Hienekin commercial is terribly racist omg

Heineken has not yet responded to the controversy.

Last December, Chance critiqued the depiction of racism in Netflix movie Bright.

He expressed reservations over a scene in which an orc is lynched, which he interpreted as a thinly-veiled and “shallow” metaphor for racism.

“I always feel a lil cheated when I see allegorical racism in movies cause that racism usually stems from human emotion or tolerance but not by law or systems the way it is in real life,” Chance said. “The characters in #Bright live in a timeline where racism is gone… cause we hate ork now.”
