Colin Kaepernick’s ‘Beats By Dre’ Commercial Is Pure Slander
I was getting ready to watch the Seahawks take on the 49ers on Sunday, and this bullshit commercial with Colin Kaepernick came on. First of all, I’ll be the first to say as a Seahawks fan, yes we hate 49ers. Yes, we hate them with a passion. However, the way Seahawk fans are depicted in the commercial gives Seahawks fans — in fact ALL NFL fans — a bad name. Not only is it overly dramatic (it’s a short movie at 2:50), biased, and uncalled for (the angry fans didn’t need to be any color to get the point across), it’s completely baseless.
It shows Seahawks fans getting arrested, peeing on the bus, breaking windows, swearing… it looked like a combination of a riot and The Walking Dead.
I was disgusted and wish the 12th Man and the Seattle Seahawks organization could sue Beats by Dre for slander.
I buy multiple sets of headphones every year, and you’ll never find me buying a pair of Beats by Dre — EVER.
Do you think this commercial is off base?
