posted by Randall

Air France ad campaignAsian American blogger Jeff Yang has been having a field day on Twitter mocking an Air France ad campaign that uses a white model in yellowface to promote its flights to Asia.

He’s asking his followers to alter the ad to something less offensive to Asian Americans.

Many have taken creative license to make some pointed changes.

If you’ve missed it, you should check out ReAppropriate.

The blog site has done a good job recapping the campaign.
