Behold the Chinese laundry detergent ad that has got everyone asking themselves “Is this the most racist ad of 2016?”
The commercial for Chinese detergent brand called Qiaobi premiered on Wednesday and it is definitely not OK.
The ad starts off innocently enough, with a Chinese woman doing laundry.
Then a black man with streaks of white paint on his face enters the room and gives her a wolf whistle. Think you know where this is going?
The woman then invites him to join her and once he’s near her, she shoves a detergent capsule in his mouth and shoves him into the washing machine.
To see what happens next, watch the video bellow!
Your eyes aren’t playing tricks on you. She put a black man in the washing machine and he came out Chinese.
A sparkly clean Chinese man who then proceeds to show off the “magic” detergent capsule.
No wonder everyone is calling the ad racist.
Here are some of the reactions that the Chinese laundry detergent ad has gotten on Twitter.

Maybe the most racist ad I've ever seen. They literally wash the Black off of him.

Do you agree with the rest of the viewers? Is this the most racist ad of the year?
