  • After Chance the Rapper called out a Heineken commercial for being “terribly racist,” the Dutch brewing giant has pulled the advertisement. The 30-second spot for Heineken Light depicted a white bartender sliding a beer down a long bar, past multiple black individuals, to a customer. It closed with the tag line “sometimes lighter is better.”
