Macklemore's ACLU Promo Will Make You Cringe


Macklemore—the rapper who has the daunting, self-appointed task of being more socially conscious than all of the members of Arrested Development combined—has teamed up with the ACLU in a video that is maybe supposed to be funny?

Not since the fart blanket has a commercial been so confusing as to whether it’s real or an SNL skit. Adding to the weirdness is that Macklemore implies that being a card-carrying member of the ACLU guarantees a person certain rights like gay marriage or abortion, which isn’t really true. It’s not bad that he tries, and he seems like a nice guy and all, but who elected this straight, white dude as The Ambassador of the Maligned?
