CNN commentator Angela Rye who campaigned vigorously for Hillary Clinton during US last presidential campaign is under fire for her ignorant post about Paul Pogba’s Adidas-Predator ad.
After H&M’s scandal over the weekend, which they apologized for on Monday, Angela Rye decided to find fault in Paul Pogba’s ad for Adidas Predator, calling the ad racist. Well soccer/football fans weren’t here for it. They called her ignorant and ‘dumb’ for assuming the ad was racist, citing other football players, including David Beckham who have been the face of the cleats brand.

Well, she got major backlash for her ‘over reach’. Read some comments below:
