So the Canada Oil Sands Community put out an ad that is guaranteed to bring your oil business to America’s hat and not to the deserts of the Middle East.
As the tweet says, people got offended and the Canada Oil Sands Community was forced to take it down and issue an apology.
From Global News:
Canada Oil Sands Community founder Robbie Picard posted any apology on the group’s Facebook page which includes “It was not my intent of demeaning women or any people of any sexual orientation.”
In his apology, Picard added, “It was rather to highlight injustice done by other countries we are purchasing our oil from. I certainly don’t want to divide our community. I believe in equality and human rights.”
I personally think that this is a great ad. Who wouldn’t want to do business in a place where lesbians are considered hot? The Middle East isn’t really known for their treatment of women. Chivalry isn’t dead there only because it was never alive. So Picard was just trying to show that Canada accepts lesbians..
