Old Navy Receives Backlash Over Interracial Ad
But instead of people getting excited over the sale, they focused their attention elsewhere … the interracial couple and their child.

My family and I will never step into an @OldNavy store again. This miscegenation junk is rammed down our throats from every direction.

@OldNavy Absolutely disgusting. What’s next? Gender neutral bathrooms? Pedophilia acceptance propaganda?! Never shopping here again.

However, despite the backlashes Old Navy faced Friday, they had some supporters as well.

Model Grace Mahary—the woman featured in the ad—also took to Instagram yesterday to give her take on the controversial ad.
“In light of the controversy revolving around my pretend family… I am proud to be representing interracial love, multiculturalism, and most importantly, a mentality that supports opportunity for all ethnicities,” she wrote.
