Edmonton woman opens a bottle of Vitamin Water to find the words ‘You Retard’ written on the cap.
As if that isn’t offensive enough in itself, it turns out that the woman who opened the bottle has a sister who is developmentally delayed.
Supposedly the words (part of a Canadian promotion, the idea being to generate funny random phrases) were randomly paired from two lists, one in French and one in English (in French, ‘retard’ means late).
I don’t think that a company this big can afford to make a mistake like this.
I think you just gave us another reason to not buy your products.
While we’re at it, we may as well stop buying Pepsi too.
