Family Group Gets ‘F John Key’ Ad Banned

15 August 2014 EMBARGOED UNTIL A.S.A. RELEASE DECISION TODAY

Family Group Gets ‘F John Key’ Ad Banned

Family First NZ is welcoming a decision by the Advertising Standards Authority to uphold their complaint and ban the Internet Mana party’s ‘Join the Revolution’ advert on YouTube which includes a crowd chanting "f*** John Key”.

“Internet Mana dragged political debate to a new low level. A political advertisement which simply denigrates another political leader in an offensive fashion doesn’t belong in any election campaign,” says Bob McCoskrie, National Director of Family First NZ.

“Political parties should show social responsibility and observe taste and decency – especially as they seek to engage families in the political campaign.”

“We would encourage Internet Mana to find a better advertising agency and to lift their game.”
