Old Navy's Interracial Couple Is Driving Racists On The Internet Insane
Happy Monday! The internet is a miserable place!
Did you know that in the year 2016 images of interracial couples still drive a lot of people completely bonkers? It's true!
Evidence? Old Navy shared an image of a couple (1 white male, 1 black lady) with a child and the resulting sh*tstorm practically destroyed the company's social media account. Here's the image in question:
Totally innocuous! This family is living their normcore fantasy!
Too bad Internet racists are so empowered to spew forth a veritable septic tank worth of hateful rhetoric that they're rarely ever concerned about the fact that--often times-- their real names are not only associated with their profile, but highly traceable, too. Here are just a few of the disgusting responses, screenshotted by Jezebel and ONTD:
Jezebel also noted that while most Old Navy tweets only get a dozen or so retweets and responses, this "controversial" image received thousands of replies and shares.
It wasn't all bad, though:
See?! There's some hope left in the world!
Just kidding, most people are terrible and we should all be ashamed.
