Offensive Ad

Offensive Ad


Every few songs on Spotify, I get some tanning salon ad that says "Why be pale and pasty, when you can be tan and tasty." How could you possibly allow this? When did it become acceptable to degrade someone's skin color in a paid advertisement? People should be able to be proud of their heritage, whether they're Italian and tan and Scottish and pale. Honestly I'm shocked that you would allow your advertisers to ridicule and belittle people based on their skin color.

Hey there!


Thanks for your feedback.


I'm afraid there isnt much i can do about this for you.


I'd recommend reporting this to Spotify Customer by filling out this online form here.



if that shocks you how do you get through life without a heart attack?
