An anti-illegal immigration group issued a call to arms Tuesday against a prominent Swedish vodka brand.
Americans for Legal Immigration PAC President William Gheen is in a tizzy over an Absolut vodka advertisement that ran recently in Mexico. While it is no longer running, he says it shows the alcohol manufacturer is peddling products to a group of people actively seeking to claim U.S. territory in the name of Mexico.
The ad showed an 1830s map of Mexico and the United States where most of the modern western United States was still part of Mexico. The ad headline was “In an Absolut World.”
Absolut officials say they had no intent to make any immigration-related message with the ad, and have since issued an apology.
Gheen’s group is calling for a boycott of the product until Absolut fires the ad agency.
