The ads from Nando's promote xenophobia and racial tension, critics say

New ads from South African fast-food Nando's has charges of racism, TV execs say.

One popular South African fast-food restaurant is in hot water after airing racially charged advertisements, reports The Atlantic. Now, South African airwaves have reacted swiftly to remove the ads from Nando's, known for its peri-peri chicken.

The newest ad from Nando's portrays tourists in South Africa, and aims to show "what's wrong with South Africa" — diversity. The ad, according to the Global Post, goes on to "vaporize" all tourists and other ethnicities until one Khoisan bushman remains. He says, "I'm not going anywhere. You *$&!#* found us here." The tie-in to food? Nando's new "diverse" menu, with a voiceover saying, "Real South Africans love diversity."

The South African Broadcasting Corporation has refused to air the ads, and told local media that they were afraid the ads would incite violence toward tourists. Others in the TV industry in South Africa have said the ad trivializes xenophobia, a very real problem in South Africa.

Nando's is no stranger to controversy: In 2010, during the World Cup, Nando's aired an ad that encouraged women to walk around topless to conform to stereotypes surrounding South African women. We guess satire isn't the brand's strong suit. Watch the video below and tell us what you think.


Paddy Power's Oscar Pistorius ad to be pulled after record 5,200 complaints

The advertising watchdog has ordered Paddy Power to pull its controversial ad featuring Oscar Pistorius, after a wave of protest has seen it become the most complained-about campaign ever.

The advert shows a photograph of Pistorius superimposed on a statue of an Oscar award. Next to it, the ad states "It's Oscar Time. Money back if he walks. We will refund all losing bets on the Oscar Pistorius trial if he is found not guilty."

The Advertising Standards Authority has so far received 5,200 complaints about the press ads, which offer refunds for losing bets if the South African Paralympian is found not guilty of the murder of his girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp.

The wave of complaints has in part been fuelled by an online petition on Change.org which has attracted more than 122,000 signatures.

The ASA said the strength of the public outcry has forced it to take the "unusual step" of telling Paddy Power to pull the ad immediately.

The watchdog will usually allow a campaign to continue to run until it has finished its investigation into whether there has been a breach of the UK advertising code.

In the case of the Pistorius ad the ASA is investigating whether the ad is offensive for trivialising issues surrounding a murder trial, the death of a woman and disability.

The watchdog said that it is also looking at whether the ad "brings the good reputation of advertising generally into dispute".

"We consider the ad may be seriously prejudicial to the general public on the ground of the likely further serious and/or widespread offence it may cause," the ASA said in a statement published on Wednesday. "We are also concerned that the good reputation of the advertising industry may be further damaged by continued publication of this ad."

The ASA said that the ad should "remain out of all circulation in UK media" until it finishes its investigation, which is being fast tracked.

It is not investigating complaints about the ad appearing on Paddy Power's website, as the company is based in Ireland and is out of the remit of the UK watchdog.

The number of complaints dwarfs the previous record holder, an ad for KFC that featured people in a call centre singing with their mouths full, which drew 1,671 complaints.

A spokesman for Paddy Power said that the ad was only meant to run as a one-off on Sunday following the Oscars, was not part of a longer media campaign, and only ran in the Sun on Sunday in the UK.
