GAP’s baller response

Recently, Gap let out this advertisement:

It made a few waves because these aren’t the traditional models that Gap has used: they branched out and used people who aren’t “traditional Americans”. This was a public response in New York City:

If you can’t read it some crossed out “love” from the Caption “Make Love” and wrote bombs– because obviously if your skin is brown you’re a Muslim extremist (kind of awkward because these models are Indian). Someone also wrote “Please stop driving taxis”.

After receiving notice of this vandalism, Gap asked where this occurred so this could be fixed and put the ad up as their twitter background.

You go Gap! Kudos to your prompt and awesome response to this atrocity.
