Woke Porsche Apologizes for Trying to Cancel Jesus Christ

'This was a mistake, and we apologize for any offense caused...'

(Dmytro “Henry” AleksandrovHeadline USA) Porsche was forced into issuing an apology after the woke company received major backlash for trying to cancel Jesus Christ in one of its promotional videos.

The video drew attention after some viewers noticed that a massive statue of Jesus Christ was removed from the background, the Daily Mail reported, specifically the Cristo Rei [Christ the King], a statue that was inspired by Rio de Janeiro’s Christ the Redeemer and overlooks the capital of Portugal.

The decision to remove the statue of the Son of God caused a backlash from people on social media, with some of them calling for the anti-Christian company to be boycotted and others questioning why they filmed the clip from that angle if they were just going to edit out the statue.

“Hey, @Porsche, why did you erase the statue of Jesus Christ from your video filmed in Lisbon?” asked on commentator, who also reposted the video on the social media platform formerly known as Twitter after Porsche made the commercial private on its YouTube page.

As of Aug. 7, 2023, the original post was viewed by almost six million people, with thousands of them criticizing the woke company in the comments.

“Wow, and that’s a beautiful statue to see in person. I drove on that bridge and it’s truly amazing. I’m marking Porsche off my list of future purchases. They should be ashamed!” one person wrote.

Another person pointed out that the decision to use that specific location for the video wasn’t accidental.

“They did not have to film this location/angle at all, so many alternative locations that would have taken nothing away from the advert. Yet they decided to include the statue/base so they could erase the most important part of it,” the person wrote.

After receiving the backlash, the German car manufacturer apologized, called the decision a “mistake,” and reuploaded a version of the video to YouTube that includes the full statue.

“In a previously-uploaded version of the 911 S/T launch film, a landmark was removed. This was a mistake, and we apologize for any offense caused. The original film is online now,” a spokeswoman said in a statement.
