Default Guinness to pull Six Nations ads over immigrant offence concerns

Guinness to pull Six Nations ads over immigrant offence concerns

Billboards read: ‘You Don’t Pick A Side. Your Grandparents Have Done That Already’


Feb 2, 2019

Guinness is to pull a number of billboard adverts put up ahead of Ireland’s rugby match against England after admitting they may cause “offence or confusion” to immigrants or families with diverse backgrounds.

The Six Nations ads, which drew criticism from the Immigrant Council of Ireland, say: “You Don’t Pick A Side. Your Grandparents Have Done That Already.”
