Black Cars Matter advert for Audi A4 by Lingscars.com is ruled to be irresponsible and offensive

A Facebook advert by car leasing website Lingscars.com that parodied the Black Lives Matters movement was socially irresponsible and fetishised black men, the advertising watchdog has ruled.

The post, published on June 16 and advertising an Audi A4, started with the comment ‘***BLACK*** In light of recent events, I’m resurrecting my Audi deal:’.

Underneath it was an image of a raised black fist with the text ‘Black Cars Matter’ as well as the words ‘I asked Holly for a headline for this A4… and she said: “Once you go black, you never go back!”‘

The advert also referred to a ‘big gearknob’.

 

Quite like her response too:
