See the Superbowl Ad Crybabies are Calling Racist
A Super Bowl ad featuring rapper Lil Wayne cooking food for an actor portraying former president and founding father George Washington is being criticized as racist.
The minute-long ad for Apartments.com features actor Jeff Goldblum and a gospel choir performing the theme song “Movin’ on Up” from the hit 1970s sitcom The Jeffersons. Sitting at a piano, Goldblum is lifted to the top of an apartment high rise building by a crane.
But when he reaches the top, instead of George and “Weezy” Jefferson, Goldblum finds George Washington and Lil Wayne grilling food for an apparent Super Bowl watch party.
