On the right hand side, you can see the outdoor advertisement for something, titled "White is coming". It generated a lot of controversy and heat, due to its suggestive content. As the picture shows a white blonde (probably) girl chocking a hapless black girl, and combined with its tagline "White is coming", was seen as a racial statement, depicting the supremacy of people with white skin over the persons with black skin colors. The controversy generated, forced the company to withdraw the ad from the market.
