Erick Erickson Doesn’t Understand The Anger Over The Coca-Cola Ad

Even a regular culture warrior like Erick Erickson is confused by the conservative outrage over Coca-Cola’s Super Bowl commercial.

“People were really upset about the Coke advertisement? Seriously?” the RedState.com editor tweeted on Monday.

The negative response came from the likes of former Rep. Allen West (R-FL), who protested the ad’s multilingual rendition of “America The Beautiful.” The ad even inspired a #BoycottCoke hashtag on Twitter.
