Controversy arose as many disapproved of the Coca-Cola commercial with people singing "America the Beautiful" in different languages, outraged because they think it should only be in English since it's an American song. What do you think?

Fuck those guys. seriously. I know that's really rude sounding but I'm honestly sick of these kinds of people. They're a cancer. I'm just sick of all this bigotry and ignorance that's resurfaced lately

My marine father-in-law had an issue. I found the commercial enjoyable.

Meh. Don't drink Coke, don't like their commercials, but it's messed up that people are more upset about singing the song in other languages than about Coke trying to co-opt an American song for commercial purposes.

I think its a great ad. We are a nation built on immigrants... It's sad that we are so quick to turn our backs on something that makes out country great

Probably the same intellectuals who raised opposition to the "Arabic numerals" poll. Smh.

I think it was RJ's poll. It was just as hilarious as you'd expect.

I don't have a problem with the different languages, it was just a boring commercial.

We don't have a national language.
How have we become a nation of faux-outrage? The anti-political correct people have become the most outraged of everyone.

While none of them were born in the United States of America, obviously, almost all of them were born in the American colonies.

I never really liked America the Beautiful even in English, it's all about the national anthem.

People are ignorant. America is a country of immigrants and we should be proud to hear any patriotic song sung in different languages.

I think people are nuts. It was a good add. It emphasized the diversity that makes us what we are.
