Another fact – @cnn you ARE airing the ad for free when you show clips of it. CUT IT OUT!

Wait…CNN refused to be paid to air this ad but did tweet it out to the masses via their official communications Twitter account? The irony!

CNN, you run this cr@p over and over. You do not deserve a praise.

And some didn’t find the ad — this version at least — racist.
Im latin american, and this add might be innacurate, exagerated, not factually correct, etc. But IS NOT racist.
Not everything that you don’t like is racist. And the fact that you rejected the add on that basis shows, once again, that you’re not a news network, but propaganda.

I had no idea "illegal alien" was a race. Thanks for educating me, @CNN!

There is literally not one shred of anything that could even be mistaken as racist in this ad. CNN has forced more people to vote red than any Republican could.

But there were also those who found CNN worthy of praise for not accepting ad money to air the ad in rotation on its network:
Thank you @CNN, for critically thinking about it (and not just the revenue). We need more of that, everywhere.

Although for some it is difficult to believe it… money can not buy everything.
