Coors in Hot Water Over Beer Can

Share this post

Critics of Coors Light's participation in New York City's Puerto Rican Day Parade have vowed to continue their protest, despite a call by Parade organizers that they stand down. Complaints by Manhattan politicians and advocacy groups began earlier this week over claims that Coors was disrespecting the Puerto Rican flag by using it to sell beer. MillerCoors, a corporate sponsor of the Parade, will sell specially-decorated cans of Coors Light in conjunction with it. Part of the decoration consists of an apple-shaped emblem overlaid with a blue triangle, white star, and red and white stripes—elements of Puerto Rico's flag. The decoration looks similar, if not identical, to the logo of the Parade itself, as displayed on the Parade's website.
