Old Navy

In today's "Racist Trolls Have Too Much Time on Their Hands" news, who knew an Old Navy ad could get people all riled up? Well, it can if you're racist and don't like to see interracial families on display.

The clothing company's recent tweet included a black woman, a white man and a black kid. Cute pic. Simple clothing. But the connotation for many racists was that the ad was anti-white and promoting miscegenation.

So, of course, the racists came out to shed their white tears, because what else would they do on social media?

Just as there were racists showing their hate, others came out to support Old Navy and its diverse ad:

As long as social media provides an anonymous outlet for people's racist views, things like this will never go away.
