Internet Perfectly Shuts Down Racist Trolling Of Old Navy's Interracial Ad

Bravo, Internet.

Racist trolls were no match for the outpouring of love that followed after Old Navy tweeted an ad portraying an interracial family. 

On Friday, Old Navy tweeted an ad featuring an interracial couple to promote its Thank You Event sale. 

Some disapproving social media users responded to the ad with racist nonsense, as Jezebel reported. "This miscegenation junk is rammed down our throats every direction," wrote one Twitter user. "Interracial couples are a fraction of US marriages. Who is the target demo," wrote another. 

Lovely. 

Fortunately, there are much better people in this world. Those people decided to fight back against the ignorance by showing their support for the imagery. Some even shared photos of their own interracial families. 

As for Old Navy, the company doesn't care about the haters. 

“We are a brand with a proud history of championing diversity and inclusion," Old Navy spokeswoman Debbie Felix told The Huffington Post Monday. "At Old Navy, everyone is welcome.”

And Clay Pollioni, the male model in the ad, is proud of the ad and the message it sends.
