Is Air France’s radio advert featuring a very stereotypical French man uttering go-to French phrases such as “Allez, allez” and “va va voom” incredibly racist? It’s like a British Airways advert talking about “fish n chips, guvnah!” with “Knees up Mother Brown” as the jingle.
Is this okay? Clearly, Air France themselves are comfortable with this decision. Perhaps it’s seen as the only way to get through to the thick as shit British consumer–which I find way more offensive.
