Racists are complaining to John Lewis about their Christmas ad because it features a black family

It seems not everyone likes the John Lewis Christmas ad.

Some complained it showed the father sorting out the gifts rather than Father Christmas.

Others said there was a danger that parents would encourage animals on to jump on trampolines.

But others aree angry for an entirely different reason: because it featured a black family. Yes, seriously.

A complaint aimed at John Lewis by ‘Katie’ on Twitter went viral yesterday:

Katie went on to claim her complaint “nothing racist” about what she said, and that most Brits thought the same:

I speak for a vast number who are too afraid to speak their mind because of the racist bullies.

Apparently, people who object to discrimination on the basis of race are the real ‘racist bullies’.

Some pointed out her hypocrisy:

The irony, of course, is that you’re currently an immigrant in France complaining about immigration in Britain.

But others said they had also made similar complaints to the department store.

Political Scrapbook contacted John Lewis today to ask for their response. A spokeswoman responded with:

We haven’t been contacted directly by the customer and we would not engage with this tweet.

Oops.
