what they wouldn't do

The people who are involved in the making of this advertisement are unbelievable. How can they be so insensitive towards matters like this? Pope and imam of the Al-Azhar Mosque's kissing on the lips on the poster - that is so outrageous.

I read that the United Colors of Benetton company had done other controversial advertising campaigns before. Must they do that to garner people's attention towards them? It's one thing to be creative, but it's another thing if it's insulting others' beliefs.

And they gave out excuses when fingers are pointed at them - "was solely to battle the culture of hate in all its forms". Silly excuse, if you ask me.

Cahya,

Niat tak menghalalkan cara..whatever their excuses are, they're crossing the line indeed.
